Slow Cooked Asian Shredded Pork


  • 2 – 2.5lbs lbs pork shoulder or pork butt
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 4-5 cloves garlic


  • Bring meat to slow cooker or instapot. 
  • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, sesame oil, rice wine, and hoisin sauce. Pour into slow cooker. Add garlic cloves.
  • Toss meat around to coat all its surfaces with the sauce, but it does not have to be completely submerged in the sauce. 
  • Cook on high for 4-5 hours (Or pressure cooked for 45min-1hr). Discard garlic cloves. Then use a fork to shred the pork (it should come apart easily) and then cook on high for another 30 minutes.
  • Serve with rice, noodles or bao buns. And don’t forget to add pickled carrots, cilantro and garnishes! Enjoy!
