Dump pork loins into a slow cooker. Hours later, enjoy pulled pork like you never have before


Pulled pork is a family favorite in my household. It obviously goes great with barbecue sauce, but there are other ways to make it. Take this 5-spice pulled pork for example. It’s an Asian take on pulled pork, and it’s extremely flavorful. It’s both saucy, sweet, and salty. You get a blast of flavor with each bite.

The best part? It’s easy to make. Just use a slow cooker!


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp five spice blend
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 lb pork loin
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp corn starch


  1. In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, five spice blend, minced garlic, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and 1/2 cup of water
  2. Cut the pork loin into 3-inch chunks. Then place the meat at the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour the blended mixture from the previous step on top.
  3. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  4. Once done, the pork should be extremely tender and should simply fall apart. Remove the meat from the slow cooker. Then use two forks to shred the meat.
