This slow cooked pork in tonkatsu sauce is a brilliant easy recipe that's so versatile. Prepare the Japanese barbecue sauce the evening before, marinate the pork overnight and then just put in the slow cooker in the morning and come home to an easy dinner! It's a perfect easy midweek recipe.
Remove as much of the outside fat as you can from the pork. There will still be plenty of fat in the pork and it will stay very moist as it cooks.
Mix together all the other ingredients. Taste the sauce and adjust any of the ingredients to your taste.
Pour the sauce over the pork and put it in the fridge to marinate for a couple of hours or even overnight.
Pour a little water over the pork so that it is almost submerged and then cook on low for 8-9 hours.
Take the pork out of the slow cooker. Put the pan on the hob and simmer the sauce to reduce. To thicken the sauce after it has reduced, add a couple of teaspoons of cornflour dissolved in cold water and stir. While the sauce is reducing, shred the pork using 2 forks. Pour the warm sauce over the pork to serve.
