Pressure Cooker Chinese BBQ Char Siu Pulled Pork puts an Asian spin on the Southern style. The sauce is slightly sweet, thick and richly fantastic.
This recipe was developed while my husband and I were living in our RV after travelling across the Country.
We love Charleston Style Pulled Pork and thought we would make an Asian inspired Pulled Pork in our Pressure Cooker. It turned out to be a wonderful creation.
Pork Shoulder consists of two parts. The upper part is called Boston Butt/Shoulder and the lower part of the Shoulder is called Picnic/Picnic Shoulder.
Both parts of the shoulder work well. The upper is a bit more fatty and probably used most for pulled pork.
Look how rich this sauce is! This Pressure Cooker Chinese BBQ Char Siu Pulled Pork is amazing truly!
Remove pork to a large serving bowl and shred.
Don’t add the potato/cornstarch directly into the Pressure Cooker cooking pot as you will end up with lumps. I just dip my one cup glass measuring cup into the pot, remove some sauce, add the starch and whisk until smooth.
After the sauce thickens, return the pork, nicely shredded, back into the Pressure Cooker, cooking pot.
Ready to serve thisPressure Cooker Chinese BBQ Char Siu Pulled Pork on delicious buns, topped with Chinese Asian slaw! I make my own buns using my Hokkaido Sourdough Bread Recipe. Enjoy, it is really yummy.
