This summer has been wicked hot in Baltimore! After a few days of no power due to unexpected severe storms and temporarily moving in with my parents so the dog and I didn’t melt (Thanks Mom & Dad!) I was excited to be home in my AC and in no hurry to heat my apartment up with the oven on a 100+ degree day. In my genius I decided to pull out the great slow cooker my sister got me and put it to work. I had been seeing different teriyaki recipes online for pork tenderloin and decided to do a mix of 3-4 different recipes creating my own version. I was pretty pleased with this dish and think you will be too, it is sweet and spicy at the same time and goes well on its own or served over a nice bed of similarly spiced couscous!
Spicy Teriyaki Pulled Pork: Serves 6-8
2lbs Pork Tenderloin
1C Chicken Stock
1/2C La Choy Teriyaki Sauce (if you don’t have La Choy add 1/4C brown sugar to the recipe!)
2TB Minced Garlic
1 Large Onion – Sliced
Rinse the pork off then place in a slow cooker with the above ingredients. Cook for 4-6 hours on low until it easily pulls apart when a fork is inserted and twisted in the tenderloin. Remove from the pot, shred the pork and return it to the sauce. Serve and enjoy!
