This is quick to prepare and tastes great. I serve it over Jasmine Basmati rice. I cook a vegetable on the side. The family loves it. I like it because I can do it in the morning and it comes out so tender.
Char Siu Pork
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast–cut off all the visible fat
Combine first 8 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. I cut the roast in half the long way and then brown it first in a very hot fry pan that I spray with Pam. You don’t have to do this. I do it because I like the color better and I think it sears the meat to keep it moist.
Place pork and sauce in an electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. I turn the pork over a few times during cooking.
serving size: 3 oz meat and 1/4 cup sauce

This really is a good one. I will be cooking it again this week.
That made me really hungry. Can it be made without the ketchup, though? I really cannot handle that stuff.
This looks very good to me. I’ll be trying this now that we’ve gotten our pork. The kids just love rice.
I’m sorry but I’ve got to say it… that looks like a way cool table!
Is the wood recycled from some family structure?
yum! I just might have to try this one!
This looks so darn good. I love crock pot idea’s. I love it when I can make something in it the night before and just get up, take it out of the fridge and put it in there to simmer all day.
