Chinese style pulled pork (slimming world friendly)

It's Chinese New Year and was thinking of doing pulled pork for dinner tonight so started thinking of Chinese flavours to use making pulled pork.

I found a Lorraine Pascal recipe which I sort of followed but added and took away a few things to make it more slimming world friendly. It's a very easy recipe just throw it all in the slow cooker but needs a bit of sorting for the sauce at the end.


Chinese style pulled pork

2lb lean shoulder of pork (fat trimmed away)
2 tsp mild chili powder
1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 tsp fresh root ginger (grated) or use from a jar
4 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp oyster sauce (not pictured)


Place everything in the slow cooker apart from the oyster sauce and mix well. Cook on slow for  8 hours until tender. You can also do it for 4 hours on high.

Shred the meat with two forks and add the oyster sauce and mix well .

I served it with Asian style slaw (recipe next week) and egg fried rice.
