Asian Slow Cooker Pork
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 4 hours
I tried this tonight and it worked out great. I followed the advice of a couple reviewers and cut the amount of ground clove, only six to eight cloves, and I felt like I should've used more. But not by much. I added sesame oil in the last hour since I don't have any seeds, as well as some red pepper flakes, i used rice wine instead of rice vinegar, and the juice of one lime which really brightened it up. I also used minced ginger, and I would definitely use more next time. The pork was moist and tender. Overall this was a great, simple recipe to build off of.
We loved it! I cooked it on low overnight. The only thing I’d do next time is to dice the onion, use fresh ginger instead of ground and add a touch of Sriracha.
The ground cloves overwhelmed every other flavor in this dish. I was worried about adding them, but I decided to stick with the recipe...and I was not happy with the results. I am not very excited about the leftovers. Personally, I would skip the cloves completely if I ever made this again. You couldn’t even taste the flavor of the ginger or even the soy sauce because the cloves were so overpowering. So, if you love cloves, you will love this. If you don’t love cloves, leave them out and I think you will love this recipe. I really think this would have been a great, healthy, and satisfying meal without the cloves.
I'm with the other person that didn't like all the ground clove in the recipe.I couldn't feed it to anybody,threw the whole works out.Maybe 1/16 teaspoon of ground cloves,1/4 teaspoon is way too much,I give this recipe a big fat YUCK
this was fabulous!
Family really enjoyed this one! It's a keeper!!
I'm confused! Isn't it usually 4-5 hours on high? Wish me luck I'm going to make this and cook it for 8 hours on low

Very tasty! I didn't have any cloves, but I added freshly grated ginger to the sauce while cooking. DELISH!
