Slow Cooker: Asian Shredded Beef (or Pork)

Serves 5-6 hungry adults! (great the next day as leftovers!)

  • Boneless Beef (or pork) roast. *I used a 4lb Beef Roast
  • 1/2 C Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/2 C Soy Sauce
  • 6T Honey
  • 6T Ketchup
  • 2T Chinese 5-Spice
  • 2T Garlic powder (or 2 cloves minced)
  • * I added 1 yellow onion cut in rings

  1. Place the roast in your crock
  2. Sprinkle the spice on the roast
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, mix and pour over the roast
  4. Cook on High for 4-6 hours or Low for 7-9 hours. * I cooked on Low for 8.5 hours

Serve over jasmine rice, shredded cabbage or you can make "Asian tacos" like we did with four tortillas, RF sour cream, cold shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix) and the beef.

We thought this was really good. I will omit the Chinese 5 spice next time. I didn't realize till it was too late that it has anise in it, and I HATE licorice. Even with the licorice taste I thought it was really good.
