Pulled Pork with Ginger Sauce Recipe

Pulled Pork with Ginger Sauce Recipe

It's almost sacrilegious for a South Carolinian from the capitol city to make any sauce for pulled pork except mustard-based. But we love this Asian-inspired Ginger Sauce. Wonderful in a sandwich it's also great over rice. —Mary Marlowe Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 7 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 pounds), trimmed

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • Thinly sliced green onions
  • Hamburger buns, split

Directions

  • 1. Place onions in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper; place over onions. Cook, covered, on low 6-8 hours or until pork is tender.
