Saucy, sweet and spicy, this delicious dinner is great on the first day over rice, then leftovers are equally tasty on buns, in quesadillas or on top of a warming bowl of soup.
Updated September 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 2 Braeburn, Gala or Fuji apples, unpeeled, cored and chopped
  • 12 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1-inch piece gingerroot, unpeeled
  • 4 lb boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups cooked white rice

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, mix soy sauce, brown sugar and chili garlic sauce. Stir in apple, garlic and gingerroot.
  • 2
    Rub pork shoulder with oil, then rub in salt. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in hot skillet 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Pour sauce over pork. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until very tender.
  • 3
    Transfer pork to cutting board; let stand until cool enough to handle. Strain sauce through fine strainer; discard any solids. Wipe out slow cooker; pour strained sauce back into cooker. Shred pork; return to slow cooker, and coat with sauce. Serve over rice.

  • No need to peel the gingerroot and apples! They will contribute plenty of flavor before being strained out of the sauce.
  • You can measure, cut and mix all your sauce ingredients the night before, and refrigerate to make the morning prep time even quicker.
