Pork Marinade:

6-7 pound pork shoulder, sliced into ¼ inch slices

¾ cup water

¾ cup honey

¾ cup coconut aminos

⅓ cup fish sauce

6 cloves minced garlic

3 TBS sesame oil

3 TBS light flavored oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)

½ red onion finely chopped

2 TSP black pepper

2 TSP Salt

Rice Bowl:

Jasmine Rice (Uncle Ben’s microwave packets are really convenient)

Cilantro for garnish

Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Prepare the slaw.  I recommend purchasing the pre-cut carrots, radish, and minced garlic to save time during preparation.  Put all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix together, cover and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

2. After the slaw is prepared, combine all of the ingredients to the pork marinade into a mixing bowl.

3. Put the pork shoulder into a crockpot, pour the marinade over, and cook on low overnight!  When it comes time to eat, shred the pork with two forks and you can do this in the crockpot, and if you have a bone-in shoulder, the meat should slide right off the bone.

4. Assemble the final product.  A typical Bahn Mi is a sandwich, but to make this fit in with the Power Athlete motto of eating with abandon, I have concocted a Bahn Mi Rice Bowl, and it is delicious.  All you need to do is put the cooked rice in the bottom of a bowl, spoon on pork and some cooked juices, then top slaw, sesame seeds, and cilantro!
