Have I mentioned how much I love my new slow cooker? Well, it’s amazing. I’ve made soup, stocks, stews and more; it has made my life as a working mum easier, and to be honest, healthier too. This is a particularly healthy recipe, but it is delicious. Filipino pulled pork, a version of asado, is typically shredded and used as a filling for siopao, a meat-stuffed steamed bun. It’s also good with rice and a fried egg or on a regular or steamed bun. It’s best served with siopao sauce.
- 3 pounds pork butt or shoulder, cut into 2-inch chunks.
- 1 large onion, minced
- half a head of garlic, cloves minced
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup oyster sauce
- ½ cup brown sugar
- Mix the brown sugar, oyster sauce, soy sauce, garlic and onion in the crock pot.
- Add the chunks of pork and coat evenly with the sauce.
- Cook for 6-8 hours on low.
- Strain out the chunks to a pan. Shred the meat. Return to the slow cooker, mix, and cook for another 2-4 hours.
- Serve on a bun or with rice.
