Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup cider or white wine vinegar
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  1. Cut roast in half; place in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, combine the water, soy sauce, sesame seeds, molasses, vinegar, onions, garlic powder and cayenne. Pour half over the roast. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Place roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker; add the reserved marinade. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce temperature to low; cook 8-9 hours longer or until meat is tender.
  3. Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth.
