A delightful sauce that will dress up your next pulled pork lettuce wraps meal!
Get. In. My. Belly.
(Name that movie!!?!!)
Oh my heavens…next time you pick up a pork roast, please make these. Please. Please. Please!
First cook the pork roast in the slow cooker… then proceed…
Make the soy-sesame-garlic-onion-ginger sauce.
Pour over the pulled pork and toss.
Set the rest of the BBQ pulled pork in the fridge and use later in the week on sliders!
If you are hosting a Memorial Day gathering, consider making these for guests…a pound of the pulled pork would easily make a dozen or more “mini” lettuce wraps…just use a smaller lettuce leaf for each!
