I really love anything Asian in the slow cooker. It always seems to turn out so well. I love this recipe for Slow Cooker Asian Pulled Pork. It is easy to get going in the crockpot in the morning and it is totally flavorful. I much prefer this pulled pork to a BBQ pulled pork! Try it instead of your regular pulled pork, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Ideal slow cooker size: 5-6 quart

2 Tbsp oyster sauce (found by other Asian foods)
1. Place roast in the bottom of slow cooker. Pour in water and bouillon. Place onions around the roast.
2. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-12 hours (depending how hot your slow cooker cooks)...it should be very tender and easy to shred.
3. Drain juices and discard onions.
4. Shred the meat.
