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
