Asian cuisine is not my strong suit. Since going to the market last week it has been my goal to complete at least one Asian dish succesfully. So I chose this one:
Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons chilli-garlic sauce
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
kosher salt & pepper
2.5 lbs pork shoulder (I used 1.5 lbs)
1 cup long grain white rice - sticky rice recipe to follow
1 medium head bok choy
2 scallions, sliced
In a 4-6 quart slow cookier, combine soy sauce, sugar, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, 5 spice powder, salt and pepper.
Anywho. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5.
25 minutes before serving prepare rice. I used sticky rice- use white rice that is high in startch and cook as package directs then add a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of white rice vinegar Perfect!
Chop bok choy and scallions.
This is DELICIOUS and is the best part is you can throw it all into the slow cooker then go to work, run errands, do whatever...come back do 20 minutes of prep and you have dinner! Yippee!
