Pulled Pork with Spicy Ginger Sauce

Lately, I've been stumbling onto a lot of pulled pork recipes. I don't remember ever making pulled pork and I thought I really should give it a shot. My grill is out of propane or I would have loved to grill my pork. I settled instead for my trusty crock pot.



I kept the ingredients to a minimum. Just a little onion, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper.



First I placed some sliced sweet onion, sliced ginger and chopped garlic in the bottom of the crock. Then I put the roast in and topped it with more sweet onion, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. I then filled my crock about 1/3 full of water, turned it on low and let it do it's thing for about 8 hours.



Then I took it out and shredded it up. The flavor was amazing just by itself. I did make a little spicy ginger sauce to go with it just for fun.



I tossed the pork with the sauce and served it over rice with a little green onion garnish.



Ingredients

4 lb boneless pork roast
1 inch piece of ginger, sliced
1 Sweet onion, sliced
3 cloves chopped garlic
water

Sauce
2 tbsp prepared mustard
2 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp hot chili sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/4 cup water

This had wonderful flavor! I think it would also be great on a bun of some kind or used in a wrap with some spicy slaw.

I would also like to take a moment to thank Jenn from Bread + Butter for passing me this wonderful award! You should go over and visit Jenn's blog, it's one of my favorites. Right now she has a very tasty pizza on her blog that I would love to try!




Thanks Jenn! :0)

We enjoy pulled pork here as well. I really like the addition of ginger in the first step. The missing ingredient in my pulled pork, I think! Loving this!

I also love your new header. So bright and fresh looking. Well done!

Your new header is great and any pork recipe rocks in my house.

Congratulations on your award - very deserving.

Pulled pork is serious business in the Carolinas and it's always served with slaw. I like your recipe and it's a refreshing change from the norm. I would have never thought of using the crock pot - great idea.

I've been traveling and unable to use the internet. Looks like I've missed a lot of good food. Great to be back.

Funny, but a friend just ask me for a pulled pork recipe and I was thinking of tweaking mine, but you did it! I will send her your link, she will love this, oh I do too :) think pulled pork for breakfast is kind of weird? lol

I'm a huge pulled pork sandwich fan. Love the addition of ginger to the seasonings. And putting it in a crockpot. Great idea. The pork looks so tender.

Cathy said...

Love the new layout!!

JennyMac said...

Wow...this sauce sounds great!

Marta said...

you know, I find the crock pot is even better because it makes meats nice and moist, sometimes the grilling can dry them out.
This looks lovely :)
