Asian Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Ramen Salad
It's been a while since we posted a recipe; this is such a busy time of year! Archery season has started, fall semester, pre-school and other fall plans have taken priority. We haven't had much free time on our hands for our projects, but we will post as often as we are able.
I had some Asian pulled pork at a friends house for their daughters 1st birthday party, and it inspired me to make this Asian style pork.
This Asian Pulled Pork is really good, it has more of an Asian spiced flavor with subtle sweetness. The Chinese five-spice gives it a unique spiced flavor, the brown sugar brings balance and just the right amount of sweetness.
