A fun twist on my favorite Chinese dish! Shredded pork in a General Tso sauce, served on tortillas with a broccoli slaw.

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 hrs
  • Total Time: 8 hrs 15 mins


2 cups Chicken Broth
1 (8 Oz.) Bottle Hoisin Sauce
⅓ cup White Vinegar
¼ cup Reduced-sodium Soy Sauce
¼ cup Granulated Sugar
¼ cup Cornstarch
5 Garlic Cloves, minced
3 Tbsp Minced Fresh Ginger
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2½ lb Pork Tenderloin
⅔ cup Orange Juice
⅓ cup Olive Oil
½ cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
2 (10 Oz.) Packages Broccoli Slaw, or cabbage slaw
Soft Tortillas


Whisk together broth, hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, garlic, ginger, and red pepper in a slow cooker until well combined.

Add pork to slow cooker and spoon some sauce over top. Cook on low heat setting for 6-8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks. Place pork in serving dish and coat with desired amount of sauce from slow cooker.

Meanwhile, as pork is cooking, whisk together orange juice, olive oil, and cilantro in large bowl. Stir in broccoli slaw. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, top tortillas with pulled pork and slaw.

Helpful Tips:

I would suggest sticking with the reduced-sodium soy sauce so that the dish doesn’t taste too salty. You can serve the pork and slaw in tortillas or you can also serve the pork with rice or noodles. You could use chicken legs/thighs instead of the pork. Instead of the broccoli slaw you can substitute shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix.
