Day 4: Asian Pulled Pork Bowls

Asian Pulled Pork Bowls

Day 4 of pulled pork week, chummies! To switch things up a bit so the hubby and I don’t get completely sick of pulled pork (blasphemy, I know), I decided to do an asian inspired dish. I’ve attempted many asian inspired sauces over the years and I have to say this is by far my favorite. Sauces are tricky to perfect and I’m not at all saying I’ve mastered this, but I think this is the most balanced asian sauce I’ve made so far. It’s sweet, salty, and a little spicy.

Here is a printable version of the recipe if you literally can’t even right now. I hope you literally can! You literally can even! Pulled Pork Asian Bowls

3. Serve on top of rice and green beans (broccoli is awesome too). And garnish with green onion. If you couldn’t tell already, I’ve been on a green onion kick lately.
