  • 2 1/2 pounds (1,125 g) pork roast, diced into 6 pieces
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed with the side of a knife and peeled
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) cornstarch
  • 3 Thai chili peppers, sliced


  1. In a crock pot, add the pork roast, onion, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey and sesame seeds; stir until the pork is coated with the other ingredients. Cook on high for 4 hours.
  2. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and shred using two forks.
  3. In a pot, add the reserved juices from the crock pot and whisk in the corn starch. Cook on medium-high heat until the sauce thickens. Stir in the chili peppers and shredded pork.

Crush red pepper is a good substitute for Thai chili peppers. You can also cook this recipe on low heat for 8 hours.
