DIRECTIONS

  • Slow Cooker Directions:.
  • Cut roast into 2 to 3 inch chunks. Combine pork, soy sauce, hot chili paste and ginger in slow cooker; mix well. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours or until pork is fork tender. (if you're in a hurry - cook on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours though it's better done on LOW).
  • Remove roast from cooking liquid; cool slightly. Trim and discard excess fat. Shred pork using 2 forks. Let liquid stand 5 minutes to allow fat to rise. Skim off fat.
  • Blend water, cornstarch and sesame oil until smooth; stir into slow cooker. Cook, uncovered on HIGH until thickened. Add shredded meat to slow cooker; mix well. Cover; cook 15 to 30 minutes or until hot.
  • Ideas to use meat filling with:.
  • Spicy Asian Pork Bundles - place 1/4 cup pork filling into large lettuce leaves (butter lettuce works well). Wrap to enclose. Makes about 20 bundles.
  • Moo Shu Pork - Lightly spread plum sauce over warm small flour tortillas. Spoon 1/4 cup pork filling and 1/4 cup stir-fried vegetables into flour tortillas. Wrap to enclose. Serve immediately. Makes about 20 wraps.
