Asian Styled Pulled Pork

2011 June 23
by admin

As soon as summer time rolls around, I get ready to eat my weight in barbecue.  There are many varieties of barbecue in the Carolinas, where I’m from: vinegar based, mustard based, and ketchup based are the major types.  Each variety has its die-hard fans and each variety has its delicious points.  The variety featured here, though, is one that would never be found in a local barbecue joint: Asian Pulled Pork.

The Asian flare was a nice change from the usual and I really suggest you to give this recipe a try!  Plus, it is made in the crock pot so there’s no need to heat up your kitchen on these hot summer days.
Asian Pulled Pork (adapted from So Tasty So Yummy)


1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce
1/4 cup (60 mL) plum sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sherry
1 tablespoon Sriracha

1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 pounds pork roast
1 cup sliced cabbage
red onion, sliced


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all items except for the pork.
  2. Place the pork in a slow cooker. Pour the sauce overtop.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Shred the pork with two forks and return to the crockpot.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes more.
  6. Serve on wheat rolls with cucumber slices and cabbage.

    This looks great! I have a pork roast in the freezer and when it “dethaws” I will definitely be making this.

    What a great twist on traditional pulled pork!  It makes me want to run out and buy a slow cooker :)

      Hey now – I am *sure* we can get this adapted for an oven, grill, or pressure cooker for you.

    I prepped this for dinner tomorrow – excited to try it!

    Just wanted to let you know you have a minor typo – “Cooking time: 9 minute(s)”, I think you meant 9 hours?
