Honey Soy Pulled Pork

*This post may contain affiliate links*

I have been loving crock pot meals recently!  I usually cook multiple meals at once and store them for individual meals because Nick and I aren’t both home for dinner at the same time.  The crock pot allows me to cook multiple meals at once with one in each crock pot, one or two on the stove, and some in the oven as well.

For this meal, I tried a new recipe.  I recently bought sticky rice and used a small crock-pot to cook the rice.

The crock pot I used for the pork

While cooking the rice, I used the following ingredients to make the pulled pork

Ingredients

2.5-3 pound pork roast
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 Tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

The directions said to include everything except the corn starch into the crock pot and cook until the pork is ready to pull.  Then, add the sauce into a sauce pan, add the cornstarch, and cook for about 4 minutes until the sauce is a thick consistency.

But, we all know I never actually follow a recipe to the tee so I just added the corn starch into the mixture when I first put it into the crock pot.  It worked out great and I had less to clean up!

 

This pork is easily one of our favorite meals now!  I’d probably do long grained rice next time though instead of sticky rice.  You can also add any vegetables you want to the meal.

Let me know if you make this recipe and which method you used for thickening the sauce.

BBQ Uglies Recipe Review

 

Uglies Recipe Review

I give this recipe FIVE STARS ★★★★★

The other day I was making stuffed tomatoes and realized I had double the amount of beef that would fit into the tomatoes.  Luckily, I had just seen this recipe and the first few steps for each are exactly the same.  Turns out, we liked the Uglies so much better than the stuffed tomatoes.

This recipe can be found at AllRecipes.com.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
  • 1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Here’s are the brands that I specifically used for this recipe:

  • KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
  • Pillsbury Butter Grands
  • Kraft marbled cheddar

5 Things I Loved Most About This Recipe:

  1. Uglies are cheap.
  2. Uglies are delicious, even though they look like a mess.
  3. Uglies are easy to make.
  4. Uglies are freezable, although they do taste so much better fresh
  5. Uglies are something everyone in the family loves.
