Asian pulled pork is so much better made with homemade teriyaki sauce rather than the bottled stuff. It's perfect on sandwiches, over rice, in a wrap, quesadillas, burritos, tacos, etc. Also ideal for tailgating or game day snacks.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine soy sauce, chicken broth, pineapple juice, brown sugar, sherry, honey, garlic, sesame oil, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl until you have a thin slurry, and add to the saucepan, stirring to incorporate.

  • Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer to slightly thicken, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove teriyaki sauce from heat.

  • Place pork roast in a slow cooker and pour teriyaki sauce over the top. Cook on Low until the pork is tender and falls apart when pulled with a fork, 6 to 8 hours.

  • Remove the pork from the cooker and let rest for 5 minutes before shredding with 2 forks.

  • Return the shredded meat to the pot, mix with the sauce, and let it warm up for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

Cook's Note:

If you are making the teriyaki sauce in advance, store in the refrigerator.

Cooking time will depend on the size of the pork roast.

Excellent! I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only change I made is I didn’t use sherry (don’t have it on hand), I added a little extra pineapple juice. I also tossed in the chunks of pineapple from the can I took the juice from, but didn’t end up eating the pineapple. The pork was perfectly tender after 7 1/2 hours on low, it shredded beautifully, without effort. Wonderful flavor!! Read More
