Indulge in a symphony of sweet and savoury flavours with our Honey Soy Pulled Pork. Shredded or pulled pork is a timeless slow cooker classic and is a favourite in countless dishes, from burgers to stews. It’s loved for its simplicity and flavour possibilities, and this asian inspired variant is brought to life with just a handful of ingredients.
The process behind this dish could not be simpler. Firstly, remove the skin from the pork shoulder and cut it into large chunks. This allows for more even cook and an easier shred at the end. Secondly, combine all of the other ingredients in the slow cooker, stir well and set it to low for 7-8 hours. You could also cook this on high for 3-4 hours, but if you’ve got the time, the longer the better!
Finally, it’s time to enjoy the final dish, you have plenty of options. We serve it over rice, generously spooning over the rich sauce for extra flavour. Or you could use noodles instead of rice. Feeling creative? Stuff it into bao buns or tortillas for unique, tasty creations. Just don’t forget any finishing touches of your choice —we sprinkle over sesame seeds and freshly chopped spring onions.
