Crock-Pot Sweet and Spicy Pork Shoulder

The men in my life LOVE pork. It is no secret it isn't my favorite, but I always aim to please. My husband and I were picking up some groceries after church on Sunday and I was upset because there was no fresh caught fish to be found. I guess the fishermen deserve a day off too. So he said; "It has been a while since you made pork". So I told him to go ahead and pick out some and I will make it for him. He settled on some nice fresh cuts. We had gone to the early service so I had all day to figure out what to make him. Days like these are my favorite. I decided to make some Sweet and Spicy Pork served over steamed Jasmine rice. 
It was a big hit. Sorry the pictures stink. I figure some pictures are better than no pictures. It was 6:30pm and dark by the time they were ready. So it is what it is. 

Gluten-Free Sweet and Spicy Pork in the Crock-Pot
Pork Shoulder fat trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp chili sauce
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce or braggs amino acids
1 tbsp ginger
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

Add everything and cook on low in the crock pot for 7 to 8 hrs.
Serve with steamed white rice.


  1. We don't do pork - do you think this would work as well with beef?

  2. absolutely! If you get a roast it would turn out nicely!
