Instructions

  1. Heat a frying pan with some oil in it.
  2. Combine the five-spice and salt in a flat bowl or plate.
  3. Cover the pork pieces with five-spice on each side, and then brown each piece in the frying pan on both sides (a few minutes on each side).
  4. Once browned, place all the pork in a slow-cooker or dutch oven.
  5. Back to the frying pan, place the onions, ginger, and garlic in the frying pan and heat for a few minutes.
  6. Add some of the chicken broth to the frying pan to wash all the ingredients into the slow-cooker.
  7. Add the rest of the chicken broth to the slow-cooker and cook for about 3 hours, or until the pork is tender and easy to shred. Cover the pork about 1/2 of the way with broth (or water).
  8. When the pork is done, skim off the fat from the top and pull the pork apart with a fork and/or knife.
  9. Bring all the green ingredients together and you are ready to start making and eating lettuce wraps. A little squeeze of lime enhances the flavor of the shredded pork.
  10. Enjoy!
