I made a few minor dietary modifications and it was great. We also can’t do bread. So I made an Instant Pot “fried rice” with vegetables. And then mixed this pork and sauce into the rice. Was fantastic! Will definitely make again. Thanks.
This was so easy and very good but I think it could have had more spice? Not sure about adding more Chinese 5 spice. Maybe I’ll make it with more garlic? Any recommendations?
Hi, Elizabeth! It sounds like your Chinese 5 spice was maybe a little less potent then the one we used, or perhaps you just like your dishes more strongly flavored! In any case, yes, you can definitely increase either the 5 Spice or the garlic. Enjoy!
Bloody awesome! Impressed all the flat mates this week!
Amazing!!! So delicious. This recipe got rave reviews from all my guests. The only ingredient I didn’t have on hand was the sherry. I didn’t replace it – just left it out. Everything else, I followed as written, including grinding the spices myself instead of using a mix. Excellent recipe!
Hi can I use pork butt with this recipe?
Hi, Tish! Yes, pork butt should work just fine. Enjoy!
Pork shoulder and pork butt are the same cut.
I made this for my boyfriend and I a few weeks ago and it was amazing – we ate it two nights in a row. My new favorite slow-cooker recipe! Seriously something special, highly recommend it. And so easy!
I’m so glad you liked it Becca!
I also don’t have a slow cooker, but I do have a pressure cooker. Would there be a way to modify this recipe for the pressure cooker?
Great question, anyone who regularly uses a pressure cooker want to chime in?
I use stove top pressure cooker. Pork takes about 30 – 40 minutes to be super soft. Use less water otherwise the gravy will be too watery.
Absolutely delicious and easy to make. Topped it w Bobby Flay Asian cabbage slaw recipe for a little crunch and tartness. Worked great w sweet potatoes. Mixed some gochujang w hoisin for topping sauce. It was a hit!
I’m so glad you liked it Keena, and what a great idea to top it with an asian cabbage slaw. Perfect!
Oops. Not sweet potatoes…sweet rolls!
I made this today and it was delicious. The pork was very moist and tender. I couldn’t find the Hawaiian Dinner Rolls so I used onion buns instead. It was still very good.
This looks delicious, and I want to try it. We don’t have Hawaiian dinner rolls where I live, and I wonder what would be a good substitute. I don’t make my own yeast breads (due to failures in the past.
A regular dinner roll will work too.
I can’t wait to try this!
my latest trick for removing the fat AFTER cooking is to cook the meat over night, then put it in the fridge in the morning before work, then remove hardened fat just before reheating for dinner. learned it from the smitten kitchen brisket recipe (i think) and now i use that method for most slow cooker recipes with fatty meat!
I always like to sear/brown the meat before going into the crockpot. Any advice against this practice regarding this recipe? Although there is no way to go wrong with pork….
Hi Miguel, when I have time, I do that too. Great idea!
Sorry I forgot to mention I do not have as slow cooker, left it in the state when I moved
to europe, i cook things on top of the stove or in the oven. yes it take several hours also but it comes out perfect.
Yes it can ofcourse use a good solid pot to cook it in
If I wanted to make this in the oven instead (don’t have a slow cooker) what would you suggest for time and temperature?
I would season, gather up in heavy duty foil and bake at 325. Foil will act as slow cooker. YOu could pot it also, with lidded pan on top of the stove on #5 on electric stove. I have lidded skillets that work well. I am just a mother, grandmother, great grandmother and not a professional cook, so take this with a grain of salt or not if you have high blood pressure. LOL
I don’t have a slow cooker, can this be made in the oven? it sounds delish.
