Asian Pork

Serves 10-16 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 4 hours

Cost: $10.00

pork: 7.00, soy sauce: .30, mustard: .10sweet and sour sauce: 1.50, onion: .10, carrots: .50, peas: .50

2-3 pound pork (or beef) roast

2 C water

1/2 C soy sauce

bottle sweet and sour sauce (I used a 16 oz bottle, but it is a bit forgiving, so you could use smaller)

2-3 Tbsp spicy mustard

1 onion, diced small (or grated)

3-5 carrots, peeled and diced small (or grated)

1/2 lb peas (half a bag)

Sprinkle pork with salt and sear in heat resistant oil (I used a Dutch oven).

Add water, soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and spicy mustard. 

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer covered with a lid. Simmer for 3-4 hours. Check it every once in a while. If the liquid is getting low, add more water. If the pork looks a little dry on top, flip it over. 

About 30-45 minutes before serving add the diced onions and carrots. Cover and simmer another 30-45 minutes. 

At end, take out the pork and shred. Then return it to the pot, add the frozen peas, and heat through. (Add a bit of water if you need a little more sauce.)

Serve over rice.
