Five-Spice Pork Sandwiches

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Place meat in cooker. In a small bowl combine apple cider, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and Homemade Five-Spice Powder. Pour over meat in cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5-1/2 to 6 hours.
  3. Transfer meat to a cutting board, reserving cooking juices in cooker; cool meat slightly. Remove meat from bones. Using two forks, shred meat, discarding fat. Place meat in a medium bowl.
  4. To serve, arrange meat and, if desired, cabbage in buns. If desired, strain reserved cooking juices; skim off fat. Serve cooking juices in individual serving bowls for dipping.

Seriously? Why would you even choose to look at a recipe that has ingredients you hate and then rate it at all? I love this recipe and have made it for years. I may be biased because I'm a past editor for BH&G, but really this is so good! I double the ingredients, add more 5 spice, and make an "Asian" slaw with sesame oil , mayo, and cayenne pepper. So good and gets rave reviews by all!

Are there any other options to the SOY & HOISIN - Don't like either one. Also, for the Five-Spice Seasoning, what could I use instead of fennel?? Dislike that, as well!!
