Slow Cooker Hoisin Pulled Pork

Pin It
Hey all! I know it's been awhile, but I'm back for Secret Recipe Club this month. I've been cooking lots, but it's hard to get some time on the computer with a newborn and toddler running around! Once I get in the swing of things, I promise I'll be back! But for now, expect sporadic recipe posts!
This month's SRC assignment was Sashi's blog over at Get Off The Couch and Cook. I'll admit there were a ton of recipes I bookmarked to try out, but these days new slow cooker recipes always grab my interest! The easier, the better :) My family loves pulled pork sandwiches, so I was excited to try out a new flavor profile other than traditional BBQ. These Asian-inspired sandwiches were scrumptious and were so easy to make. We love Asian dishes in our household so this was right up our alley! The pork was tender after a few hours and was falling apart. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. jarred minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. sweet chile sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • 3-4 lb pork loin
  • Hamburger buns, for serving
In a small bowl, whisk together everything but the pork until well blended.

Place the pork loin in a 4-qt slow cooker and pour the pineapple-hoisin mixture over the pork.

Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours or on high 3-3.5 hours.

Shred in the slow cooker, removing any large bits of fat.
