Pork: I like to use a boneless pork tenderloin for my crock pot dishes. However, you can use something comparable, just stick with same size/weight amount for cooking accuracy.
Can I Use Chicken? Yes! Boneless chicken or even a turkey tenderloin can be used. I would recommend cutting back the cooking time just a bit. You do not want to dry out the chicken or turkey.
Hoisen Sauce: This can be found in the Asian food aisle in your grocery store. It’s a thick sauce that has a bit of a sweet taste. If you can’t find it in your store, check out the recipe card.
How to Make (detailed instructions in recipe card):
- First, add your pork to your crock pot. If necessary, you can cut your tenderloin/pork into separate pieces.
- Next, whisk together sauce ingredients in a bowl, then, pour on top of the meat.
- Cook it!
- Remove pork and place in a separate plate/bowl. Remove about a tablespoon of sauce from the crock pot and whisk it together with the cornstarch. Stir in back into the crock pot.
- Shred your pork and add it back into the crock pot with the sauce. Give it a mix and cook an additional 30 minutes. For the last 30 minutes, leave the lid off your crock pot. This helps thicken the sauce.
- Once it’s done, serve it with rice or pasta.
