Slow cooked pulled pork simmered in an Asian Ginger Baking Sauce and served with Creamy Teriyaki Slaw for a delicious meal to enjoy any night of the week.

Slow Cooker Asian Pulled Pork - Mother Thyme

Pulled pork is a family favorite. I often serve it for football parties or get togethers since everyone loves a good pulled pork sandwich.

I especially love creating a meal that combines fresh ingredients with ready-to-go sauces that can create a dish that has layers of flavor. Kraft has created a line of Recipe Makers that include nine different products including Chicken Bruschetta Pasta and Tex-Mex Chicken Fajitas. I am in love with these! Each box includes two complementary sauces. You just need a few fresh ingredients to create one delicious meal. Each one includes two additional recipes, but these sauces have such versatility you can create your own dish.

This Slow Cooker Asian Pulled Pork was used with the Kraft Recipe Makers Asian Fish Tacos. The Asian Ginger Baking Sauce and the Creamy Teriyaki Finishing Sauce which are included with the Asian Fish Tacos are amazing in this dish. The tender pork is full of flavor. Mr. Mother Thyme, who loves his pulled pork, has raved about this. I have made this recipe a few times, and there are never any leftovers. You can even serve the pork over rice and sprinkle with some green onions. The pulled pork is so tender and juicy. It is topped with a Creamy Teriyaki Slaw which is the perfect compliment to this meal. What would pulled pork be without cole slaw, right?

With Kraft Recipe Makers, you can stick with one of the yummy recipes included or you can have fun and be creative. The Asian Fish Tacos also includes recipes for Baked Teriyaki Fish and Asian Almond Salmon, for a variety of chef quality meals made right in your own kitchen any night of the week that your entire family will love.

  58. Claudia Davis says:

    I think anything with an asian flavor (asian fish tacos box) to it works so well with salmon. I would marinade the salmon for about an hour in the fridge (not longer because then it starts to actually cook) and place it on the grill for some smokey flavor. I would add some sauteed julienne veggies (yellow, green and red bell peppers as well as carrots and some mushrooms) to soba noodles as a side dish for the meal adding some of the marinade to the noodles to complement the fish.

  59. Cindy Merrill says:

    Lamb meatballs ; easy to make, requires 2 eggs and 1 cup oats per pound of meat- great for tailgating, serve with a garlic yogurt sauce nicely tucked into a pita pocket.
