CHINESE-STYLE PULLED PORK
Richly spiced, aromatic, fall-apart tender pork is irresistibly tasty and so versatile. Serve it with rice and stir-fried vegetables, in crisp lettuce wraps, or with noodles and shredded carrots.
If you have leftovers of this, it also tastes great cold, or can be reheated for another meal during the week,
CAN I COOK PULLED PORK IN THE OVEN?
Yes! To cook this in the oven instead of the slow-cooker, preheat the oven to 150c. Place the pork into a large casserole dish, pour the sauce over and cook in the oven (lid on) for 5 hours. The pork is ready when you can pull it apart easily with a fork. Mix the shredded meat into the sauce before serving.
WHAT IS SHAOXING RICE WINE?
Shaoxing rice wine is intended specifically as a cooking wine, and is a key ingredient that can be used to add fantastic flavour to many Chinese-style dishes. It is widely available, but if you are not able to get hold of it, then you can substitute with mirin, which is a Japanese sweet cooking wine.
