Pulled Pork is a fan favorite around my house (especially since R2D2 joined the family). So I’m always hunting some new flavors and additions to really make it special. Let me tell you, this one is a keeper. A fusion of pulled pork with Asian sauces and seasonings on a tortilla with a sweet and tangy broccoli slaw, then topped with that perfect crunch of Sunflower Food Company’s honey toasted cashews. Step aside BBQ… there’s a new pig in town!
Korean Pulled Pork Tacos with Cashew Broccoli Slaw
2 -3 lbs. pork shoulder (pork butt), cut into large chunks
1 cup hoisin sauce
4 garlic cloves, minced
6 scallions, sliced
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 Tbs. freshly grated ginger root
1 lb. bag broccoli slaw mix
3 Tbs. rice wine vinegar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
pinch of kosher salt
2/3 cup Sunflower Foods Co. Honey Toasted Cashews
small flour tortillas
Slow Cooker Method
Place pork into slow cooker. Combine hoisin with garlic, scallions, ground ginger and ginger root; pour over pork and toss to coat each chunk of pork. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until pork is very fork-tender.
Pressure Cooker Method
Place pork into pressure cooker pot. Combine hoisin with garlic, scallions, ground ginger and ginger root; pour over pork and toss to coat each chunk of pork. Cover pressure cooker with lid and lock into place. Choose high pressure and set timer for 65 minutes. When timer goes off, use natural release method. When pressure is released, check pork to make sure it’s fork-tender. (Depending on how much pork you are using, you may need a few additional minutes in the pressure cooker.)
Meanwhile, toss broccoli slaw with vinegar, brown sugar and salt. Chill slaw until ready to serve pork. Just prior to serving slaw, toss in cashews.
Remove pork to a platter and shred; return shredded pork to sauce in cooker and toss to coat. Serve pork topped with slaw in warm tortillas.
