Anti-recipe: Chili Coconut Pulled Pork

vintage cook

I have never claimed to be a learned chef…I just like to eat, so I enjoy cooking things that are tasty and easy. I hate long recipes and stick to dishes with few ingredients. Here is my most recent culinary amalgamation. Hope you like it as much as we did!

pork_loin_mini_roast

{1 pork loin roast}

sriracha chili

{a teaspoon or 2 of sriracha hot chili sauce}

vita_coco_330ml

{vita coco pure coconut water}

Sunray_Square

{1 bottle of terrapin ale}

Put your roast into a cold slow cooker. Dot it with Sriracha Chili Sauce (as much as you like…a tiny bit won’t make it spicy). Pour coconut water and beer over the roast. Put the lid on and let it cook (High 4-6 hours, Low 8-10 hours). You can shred the pork and eat it on sandwiches or just soak up the juice with bread. You can lick the plate. We did.

If you haven’t had Sriracha Chili Sauce, you must track some down. Apparently it is great in just about anything. I only got mine this week so this is my first time using it, but I can’t wait to try it out with other dishes (hamburgers, slaw, soups?). Also, I’ve been drinking the coconut water for its health benefits, but thought I’d try it for cooking too. Anybody else a fan of either product?

  1. I love sriracha. We eat a lot of vietnamese food and it is a condiment for anything vietnamese. It's also popular with sushi and japanese food.

    It does have a lot of heat to it, though. Be forewarned!!!

  3. Another great use for my beloved Sriracha! I love it on my breakfast tacos (http://discoveringcandace.blogspot.com/2010/07/breakfast-tacos.html)
    and of course on my hot wings and just about everything else! That reminds me that I need to write about those little jewels. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have some pork in the freezer now and have been wanting to try Coconut Water. Have a great day, Candace

  7. I like to use coconut water to make rice, then I add some grilled pineapple and toasted coconut on top goes great with Thai and Polynesian dishes!

  8. I love pulled pork so I'll definitely try it. One of my favorite uses for sriracha is to make spicy tuna or salmon sashimi. Delicious and super simple!

  9. Mmm, this sounds so good! I used to make pulled pork a lot before we moved to New Zealand. Sad that now it is mostly for special occasions because it's so gosh-darn expensive over here! I should start up a pig farm, ha ha!

  20. I first tried that chili sauce when The Pioneer Woman posted her firecracker shrimp recipe. We made it last 4th of July and my husband fell in love with the sauce. You're right...a tiny bit will do ya. Thanks for the recipe!

  21. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me and for praying for Julz. She needs the prayer and so does her parents. She's not bouncing back from this surgery quite as quickly as she did the others. So hard to see her go through all of this! Your encouraging comments and sweet offer of support means more than you know. I think my greatest blessing from blogging that I never anticipated is the sense of community and the new friendships that I have made. I'm so happy to have "met" you. Love ya, Candace
