Ingredients

  • (2) 1 pound to 1 1/4 pound pork tenderloins

Marinade Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce (I use honey hoisin)
  • 1 tsp Siracha  Asian chili sauce ( for a spicier version add two)
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger

Directions

  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a large Ziplock freezer bag.
  2. Add the two small pork tenderloins to the bag and mix well. (If the tenderloins have not been previously frozen you could do this as a make ahead and freeze. Simply thaw on the counter the night before you plan to make the dish.)
  3. Put the tenderloins and all of the marinade (squeeze the bag well) into a Crockpot that has been treated with a little vegetable or olive oil spray.
  4. Cook on the LOW setting for 6 hours.
  5. After six hours, shred with a fork and mix the shredded pork with the sauce in the crockpot.
  6. Turn off the Crockpot, cover, and let the meat incorporate with the sauce while you make the Asian Slaw and steam the buns.

Asian Slaw Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded Chinese cabbage
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radish
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

Asian Slaw Directions

  1. Toss the cabbage and radish together
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well.
  3. Dress the salad a little at a time – you want it covered but not soggy. Save any additional dressing for later.

To make the Asian Pulled Pork Buns

  1. Steam 6 large Sweet Asian Rolls or any other large soft chewy buns.
  2. Split the rolls in half and place a generous serving of the pulled pork onto the bottom half of each bun.
  3. Place a handful of the Asian Slaw onto each, cap with the bun top and enjoy.
