Instructions

Pulled Pork + Korean BBQ Sauce Directions

  • Whisk together the marinade ingredients until well combined. Rub the pork with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Discard the excess marinade and place the pork into the slow cooker.
  • To make the Korean BBQ Sauce, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Cook the shallots until soft. Whisk in the chicken stock, ketchup, honey, soy sauce, and give spice powder. Cook until the sauce begins to thicken and reduce. Remove from the heat and add the vinegar and sesame oil.
  • Pour the sauce over the pork, and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours. Using two forks, pull the pork apart.

Asian Slaw Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the carrots and red cabbage. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, sesame oil, and soy sauce until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture over the carrots and cabbage and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with sesame seeds.
  • When it's time to eat, place the frozen Rhodes Dinner Rolls on a lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake according to the directions on the package.

Notes

Pork Temperature:
Fresh pork should always be cooked to an internal temperature of 145-degrees F according to FoodSafety.gov. Remember you always want to allow your pork to rest for three minutes.
To Serve:
Cut the rolls in half. Add the pulled pork on the bottom and top with a little of the Asian slaw. Enjoy!

Freezing Tips

  • Put the pulled pork in a freezer bag, leaving about an inch at the top of the bag so there is room for the pork to expand as it freezes.

  • Always label your bags with the recipe name and date so you know what it is later!
