Chinese Braised pork with Brown Rice and Asian beans

Photobucket

This is going to be a great one for batch parties. I placed all the ingredients in a foodsaver bag and put it in the freezer.  The night before I cooked it I pulled it out and put it in the fridge.

The entire contents of the bag were cooked in a slow cooker on low for 8 hours.

I put the fat side up so that it could be easily peeled off after it was done cooking.

The meat was incredibly moist and fell apart when I was cutting it. It really turned into a Chinese pulled pork. I served the meat over brown rice and topped with the cooking liquid. The flavor was sweet and mildly tangy - Delicious!!!!! Look for this on next month's batch party menus!!
