Honey-Soy Pork Shoulder

A while ago Chris posted a video for this recipe on my Facebook page. I could not find the darn video to link to this post. It was posted on the Tasty Facebook page. If I find it again I will update this post. It was super easy and over the top delicious. Chris walked in after work and asked what smelled so good! Dinner.

So here is the recipe, as I remember it!

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
boneless pork shoulder
1/2 orange

Mix soy sauce and honey. Place in a zip-lock bag. Cut pork into large cubes. Place in the zip-lock bag with soy sauce and honey. Marinate for 2 hours.

Cut onion into wedges. Place in slow-cooker. Pour contents of ziplock bag into crock pot. Cover and set on high for 4 1/2 hours.

Remove the pork and shred, think pulled pork.

Strain the broth through a fine strainer. Return the strained broth to the slow cooker. Add the pork and add the juice of 1/2 an orange. Keep warm while you prepare rice. Serve the rice on the side.
The side dish was a Tomato Salad. Again a really easy recipe. I had some cherry tomatoes from Bishop's, a tomato from our plant on the deck, and a tomato from a friend of Chris, it was a beauty. The tomatoes were seasoned with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, fresh parsley, oregano, basil, and thyme. It was summer in a bowl.
