:: more crockpotting! char siu pork roast ::

It's coooold out. And getting colder. And snowier. And that, my friends, is the only excuse I need to whip out my crockpot once again. Here's my latest:

Char Siu Pork Roast


  • 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce 
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic 
  • 2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger 
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder 
  • 1 (2-pound) boneless pork shoulder (Boston butt), trimmed
1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth

Combine first 8 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Place in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.

Place pork and marinade in an electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker using a slotted spoon; place on a cutting board or work surface. Cover with aluminum foil; keep warm. Add broth to sauce in slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until sauce thickens. Shred pork with 2 forks; serve with sauce.
