Wednesdays Unplugged – Asian Fusion Pulled-Pork Sandwiches with Slaw

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

Last week I felt like something simple I could throw in the crock pot and forget about for the rest of the day. Hot pulled pork sandwiches sounded good…and they were!


based on a recipe from Betty CrockerPulled-pork

  • 3 pounds pork boneless shoulder roast, trimmed of fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 11-ounce bottle honey ginger teriyaki sauce
  • 4 cups coleslaw mix (from a bag)
  • 3 sliced green onions (optional)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • Sandwich buns

Cut pork into 3-inch piecees and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt. Place in 5- to 6-quart crockpot slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

Remove pork from cooker and place on cutting board. Discard liquid in cooker. Shred pork, using 2 forks. Return to cooker and add honey ginger teriyaki sauce. Increase heat setting to high and cook another 30-40 minutes or until hot.

Mix vinegar, sugar, water and 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt. Add green onions to coleslaw mix and toss with vinegar mixture.

To serve, spoon 1/3 cup pork mixture onto bun and top with 1/4 cup coleslaw.
