Total Time

My Asian pulled pork is a happy flavor mashup of Vietnamese pho noodle soup and a banh mi sandwich. It's one seriously delicious slow-cooker dish. —Stacie Anderson, Virginia Beach, Virginia

  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 18 French dinner rolls (about 1-3/4 ounces each), split and warmed
  • Optional toppings: Shredded cabbage, julienned carrot, sliced jalapeno pepper, fresh cilantro or basil, and Sriracha chili sauce


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first 7 ingredients until blended. Place roast in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. Pour sauce mixture over top. Cook, covered, on low until pork is tender, 7-9 hours.
  2. Remove roast; cool slightly. Skim fat from cooking juices. Coarsely shred pork with 2 forks. Return pork to slow cooker; heat through. Using tongs, serve pork on rolls, adding toppings as desired.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally; add broth if necessary. Serve as directed.
