For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb đź‘Ť

You’re more than welcome to just have the Asian Pulled Pork on its own, but we made them into some rather colourful mini tacos/wraps.

Making the Asian Pulled Pork into wraps makes it so much easier to eat, and you can get 4 mini wraps out of a Weight Watchers white wrap.

As a result, we’ve included all the separate components to this Asian Pulled Pork – the spicy dressing and the carrot and red cabbage salad.

I urge you to try this  Asian Pulled Pork with all of the bits combined. It’ll blow your mind. The acidity of the salad compliments the savoury-ness of the Asian Pulled Pork and the dressing gives it a spicy zing.

The carrot and red cabbage salad is ridiculously easy to make. The lime juice adds such freshness and zing to this Asian Pulled Pork recipe. It’s pretty similar to our Asian salad, just minus the fish sauce. If the idea of fish sauce creeps you out – just leave it out.

The Spicy Sauce for this recipe is made of Quark, Sriracha and rice vinegar. Ok, ok.. I know Quark can be pretty rank when used the wrong way. But you wouldn’t know this was made with Quark!

If you like things with a little more heat, feel free to add more Sriracha or even some chilli powder.

  1. Hi. I was just wondering if I can make this without a slow cooker, low and slow in the oven? How would I need to adjust the recipe. Thanks.

  2. Absolutely loved this recipe. Was wondering if I could still do this with pork loin chops or pork strips? Obviously I wouldn’t cook it for quite so long but would I need to change any amounts of the ingredients?

  3. Hi, what is a fat separator? I’ve seen it mentioned in a couple of recipes and I’ve never heard of it. Is it a machine? Or a device like a sieve?
