    the mix'n vix'n's Note:

    Recipe is for a crock pot! Delish and easy! This is based off of a traditional Char Siu sauce, but true to my nature I can never leave well enough alone! I modified this recipe a lot. I just couldn't help myself. Also, the meat is usually prepared over fire or roasted, but I really wanted to find a recipe that worked well in a slow cooker and I think I accomplished that by making my mods. Hope you like it too! ENJOY!

    1. 1
      In a small sauce pan add the following items: hoisin sauce, honey, soy sauce, ½ cup of water, sesame oil, mirin, shaoxing rice wine, lemongrass fresh, ginger, garlic, and the Chinese five spice powder.
    2. 2
      Whisk together. Reserve 1/4 cup for basting and set the pan with the rest of the sauce on the stove over low hit to thicken. About 30 min, whisking occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely.
    3. 3
      Place onion chunks in bottom of crock pot and set as low. Salt and pepper the pork on both sides and place on top of the onions.
    4. 4
      Baste top and sides of pork with the reserved sauce. Add the lid and cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-5 hours on high. You will know it's done when it is falling apart. YUM!
    5. 5
      Add the cooled Korean inspired BBQ sauce reduction to a magic bullet or blender and blend until smooth. Set aside. Will keep in fridge for 2 weeks.
    6. 6
      I use this for Asian pork tacos or pulled pork sliders. Serve either one topped with shredded green and purple cabbage, thinly slices quick-pickled radishes and cucumbers, green onion, cilantro and basil. Dress with a drizzle of spicy sriracha aioli and a drizzle of the Korean inspired BBQ sauce reduction.

      Hands down, one of the best tacos I've ever had. Delicious! These need to be readily available for those folks that don't cook, i.e. food truck or restaurant. I will attempt to make them myself:) Thanks for sharing!

      Very good use for the leftover pulled pork I had. Made the sauce and the tacos. Served with a salad.
