How to Make Asian Pulled Pork
- First, this recipe is "in process". See my note for why -- but, if you feel a flavor is under-represented here, feel free to "fix" as you wish. And let me know what works!
- In a deep skillet or pot, place pork, scallions, sugar, and lemon grass. Add enough water just to cover. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for about 2 hours or until pork is tender. (If water cooks away before meat is tender, add more as needed.)
- After the meat is tender, and the water has cooked away, there should be some fat remaining in the pot. Preserve this, but remove the meat and shred it.
- Place meat back in the pan, add the fish sauce, peanut sauce, and pineapple juice. Heat through. The pork should have gained that almost paste-like texture; place on buns and serve immediately.
