Recipe

Recently I realized that I basically only cook pork two ways low and slow in the crockpot or roasted whole in the oven. It is rare that I think to make pork any other way. So I am starting to challenge myself to cook it using some other techniques and made today’s version on the grill using a simple marinade of honey, mustard, sesame oil, and rosemary. For those who prefer the slow cooker, you can also make a delicious shredded version of this recipe in the crockpot. The rosemary can be left out depending on your taste buds, or your can substitute in thyme or another herb. I also really like this recipe using orange juice instead of chicken broth.

Directions

  1. Whisk together the honey, sesame oil, mustard, rosemary, garlic, and broth. Add it to a Ziploc or non-reactive container with the pork marinate for 4 or more hours.
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.
  3. Take out the pork and drain excess liquid into a saucepan. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bring the liquid to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes until it reduces slightly and becomes a sauce.
  5. Grill for 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Cooking time may vary based on thickness. You can also cook it in a skillet with non-stick cooking spray or a touch of olive oil.
  6. Slow Cooker Option: Add everything to the slow cooker. Cook for 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low until it shreds/slices very easily. You also may want to consider doubling the recipe for more leftovers.
