Asian Inspired Crock Pot Pork

I generally am not a fan of Asian food, but Mr. Man is and I thought I'd give it a go.  Pork shoulder was on sale at the market on Saturday which cooks up beautifully in a crock pot.

Asian Inspired Pork Shoulder
One pork shoulder roast cut into 1 inch cubes
4 tablespoons Soy Sauce, 1 tablespoon Mirin, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, juice of 1 tangerine or 1/2 an orange, 1 spoonful of apricot jam, salt, pepper, 1 teaspoons chile powder, 1 teaspoon garlic granules, 1 teaspoon of onion granules and 1 teaspoon hot paprika

Mix the cubed pork shoulder with all other ingredients and place in a greased slow cooker crock.  Cook on low for 8-10 hrs.

Once the pork was done I put about 1 cup of the broth from the crock pot into a sauce pan and reduced to about 1/3 of it's volume.

Veggies:  Cauliflower, Broccoli, and Red Bell Pepper sauteed in a little vegetable oil  seasoned with diced garlic, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper.

I served the pork cubes over rice with the veggies on the side and then drizzled the reduced sauce over everything.
