Juicy Asian Oven Roasted Pulled Pork Recipe for Sliders, Tacos, Rice and Pasta! from WhiteOnRicecouple.comThis is the unabashed, meat-lovers edition of pork. Apologies if the photo is an abrupt, in-your-face visual of juicy and saucy pork in its entirety. In fact, there’s no scattering of pretty garnish nor greens nor linen-pretty. It’s a delicious and amazing pulled pork dish and that’s pretty much all we wanted to share with you. Sometimes it’s more effective to just past all the words and give you a taste of the recipe as soon as possible.

The pulled pork is so amazing, we decided to get past all the fuss and get straight to the point. And here’s the point: make this as soon as you can.

Juicy Asian Oven Roasted Pulled Pork Recipe for Sliders, Tacos, Rice and Pasta! from WhiteOnRicecouple.comA few weeks ago we found some frozen pork shoulder in the freezer (surprise!) and needed to make something with it before it was forgotten again in the dark, abyss of the garage freezer. We had remembered a Lucky Peach magazine recipe for an oven pulled pork. Fast forward a few years later we now have some pork shoulder and an appetite for something porkie.

We went a little crazy with the spices, adding some big punches of flavor to the marinade and sauce. We’re not apologizing for it, but rather, we’re warning you because you’ll be so addicted to the flavor combination of garlic, fish sauce, mustard and sugar that you just might want to use this on some other of your favorite meats.

This was the pulled pork recipe that kept on giving. For our first meal, we had pulled pork tacos. Next, indulged in pulled pork over rice. Later, it was pulled pork sliders. Last, with what was leftover, we made a fabulous pulled pork pizza.

It wasn’t until we pigged out on all these juicy pulled pork dishes that we realized just how versatile and wonderful it was. And we’re not tired of it yet, because with Super Bowl next week, we’re already planning some stellar uses for our next batch. And how about you? If you make this and have some new ideas on how to eat it with, let us know. We’re all ears.

Enjoy,

diane and todd

Asian Oven Roasted Pulled Pork Recipe

Yield: Serves 6-8

Total Time: 5 hours

You can use this pulled pork for tacos, sliders and sandwiches. It's also great on pasta and rice because the juicy sauce is so flavorful. Feel free to cook the pulled pork for a little longer to make the pork more tender and melt-in-your-mouth. We prefer to use a bone-in pork shoulder, but it works great with a de-boned chunk of meat too. And, remember, don't waste the sauce!

Ingredients:

  • about 4-5 pound pork butt or pork shoulder
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1- 15 oz. can diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce or soy sauce (but fish sauce tastes better! try it) For Gluten Free use Tamari
  • 2 Tablespoons chili garlic sauce or use Gluten Free Hot Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Then add oil, onion and garlic. Cook onions and garlic till soft and fragrant.
  3. Add tomatoes, ginger, fish sauce, chili garlic sauce, mustard, brown sugar and black pepper. Gently stir the sauce and simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Heat large cast iron pan or deep oven proof skillet on medium-high heat. Lightly coat the pork shoulder with oil and season all sides with salt and pepper.
  5. Sear each side of the pork shoulder on the hot pan until the pork is brown. About 3-5 minutes per side.
  6. Remove the pan or skillet from the heat and lay the pork in the pan.
  7. Pour the tomato sauce mixture over the pork into the oven proof pan. Cover the pork with aluminum foil.
  8. Bake the pork for about 3-4 hours, or until the pork is tender and easily shreds with a fork.
  9. Allow the pork to rest for about 15 minutes before shredding the whole shoulder. Keep foil over the shredded pork to keep it warm before serving.

It was an assignment that could have benefited our personal health, unlike some chocolate and cocktail shoots […]

We’ve been there, done that, eaten it and cooked it. Post Thankgiving always included a lunch of leftover turkey-something. Sandwiches, spring rolls, quesedillas and turkey soup were our automatic go-to-gotta-eat-up-all-this-turkey dishes. This year, we’re committed to making something different that didn’t involve the turkey to be sandwiched in between something or simmered in broth. We’ve […]
