Slow Cooker Okinawan-Style Shoyu Pork

Posted on December 4th, 2011

I did not name this recipe. If it is not Okinawan, no problem. It’s just Okinawan “style” 4 lbs. boneless pork butt 1 c. sugar 1 c. shoyu 1/4 c. sake 1/4 c. mirin 2 thumb-sized, thin slices of ginger 2 Tbsp. cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbsp of water Cut pork butt into four equal pieces and place in slow cooker. Add in sugar, shoyu, sake, mirin, ginger and garlic. Cook on high for two hours. Flip pork pieces over. Cook anothe 2-3 hours, until pork is tender. When done, remove pork from the slow cooker and pour the sauce into a small sauce pot. Bring to a rolling boil on medium high. Boil 5 min., skimming off all of the fat. Thicken with the cornstarch/water mixture. To serve, slice the pork and pour some of the sauce over the top and serve the rest of the sauce on the side. If you can make the pork the day before, it is easier to slice the pork after it has been refrigerated. To reheat the sliced pork you can either microwave or reheat it in a pan with a little chicken broth. Reheat sauce and pour over the top, reserving some on the side.

    @snarkdetriomphe Your cheeseburger meatloaf (with mustard and pickles) in it called and all I could make out was some sort of crying and sniffling going on. I think it’s jealous of the okinawan pork

    @twish1999 yey! I was like SHOCKED when I learned ..so easy. I would use a silly vegetable peeler and ginger has no rhyme or reason to it, so it was challenging!
