A fix it and forget it slow cooker meal. Serve with quick rice and veggies or in lettuce wraps for an easy weeknight meal.


  • 56 pound pork shoulder (I use bone-in Boston butt)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup sweet thai chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced


  1. Add chopped onion, garlic and red pepper to the bottom of a slow cooker.
  2. Add pork shoulder.
  3. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, ginger, thai chili sauce, orange juice and almond butter and stir to combine.
  4. Pour over pork, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  5. Shred pork using two forks and serve as desired. Feel free to spoon a little of the cooking liquid over for extra flavor or top with sriracha for added spice!
