  • 2 teaspoons sambal oelek or other Asian chile sauce

  2. Pour the sauce into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat until thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir the shredded pork into the sauce, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Make Ahead

Review Body: I seared the pork after rubbing it with salt and pepper with some garlic powder before putting it in the croc pot. I loved it. I also subbed dark corn syrup since i had no molasses on hand. I added more sauce gredents

Review Body: We made this for the Super Bowl this year - it was super easy and delicious! Got lots of compliments from the crowd. Would have loved it to be a little bit saucier, so I will make more sauce next time.
