Korean Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Yesterday morning we pulled out the slow-cooker and tossed in the beginnings of the delicious pulled pork sandwiches we would enjoy for dinner.

Korean Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Pulled Pork

2 lb pork roast (or loin)
1 bottle of light coloured beer (we used Richard's white)
salt and pepper
1 tsp of Korean chili powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, sliced

Place the pork in the slow cooker.  Sprinkle the spices and sugar over.  Pour in the beer.  Cook on low for 6-8 hrs.  Remove meat from liquid and shred with a fork.  Stir in the Korean BBQ sauce.

Assemble the sandwich with a bit of mayo, the pulled pork, cheese, coleslaw and pickles!  Enjoy!

Do you make pulled pork?  In the slow cooker?  What's your recipe?

I have never made pulled pork as I don't eat much meat, but my brothers make it in their smoker and it is SO GOOD!!!
