Cooktop Cove: How to make slow cooker sweet and spicy Asian pork shoulder
This recipe reminds me of my favorite Korean barbecue restaurant in New York. I’d always get the bulgogi, a dish of marinated pork cooked right at the table. Now that I live in central Georgia, there aren’t a lot of Korean restaurants around, but this always cures my cravings. Learn to make delicious Asian-style pork in the recipe below.
A mixture of sweet, salty and spicy provides the perfect accompaniment to rich, tender pork shoulder. This dish is delicious served over rice and/or tossed with steamed broccoli. I also like to garnish it with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
Pro tip: For a thicker, stickier sauce, mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch into 3 tablespoons water and stir into the slow cooker at the end of the cooking time. Cover and wait 5 minutes before serving.
