Tips & Tricks
  • Serve with Pams Hokien Noodles or steamed Pams Jasmine Rice.
  • For an extra kick of spice, add 1 Tbsp Pams Crushed Chilli to your sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2kg pork shoulder
  • 3/4 cup Pams Coconut Milk
  • ½ cup Pams Honey Soy Simmer Sauce
  • ¼ cup Pams White Vinegar
  • 3/4 cup Pams Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce

Method

  1. Remove the fat from the pork and season generously all over with salt & pepper. Heat a splash of oil in a large fry pan over high heat. Add the pork and sear on all sides until golden brown. Transfer to your slow cooker.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine ½ cup coconut milk, the simmer sauce, ¼ cup brown sugar, vinegar and fish sauce.
  3. Pour the sauce over the pork and set the slow cooker temperature to low to cook for 8 hours, or to high for 4 hours, until the pork is tender and easily shreds and falls apart.
  4. Once cooked, carefully remove the pork from the slow cooker and set aside on a board or plate. Reserve the sauce from the slow cooker and set aside.
  5. To make the caramel sauce, add the remaining brown sugar and coconut milk to a large fry pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Slowly pour in the reserved sauce from the slow cooker, and continue to whisk until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  6. Shred the pork with 2 forks and pour over the caramel sauce. Serve immediately.
