Inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo, I decided to make a lovely pork loin roast that I could chop into yummy bits for the bottom of the thermos. So I turned to Chinese-American Pork Roast and gave it a weeknight twist that is perfect for sack lunches. 

I would like to stop here and say that I have tried many recipes written by monkeymom and feel confident that if you make this recipe just as written, it will be delicious in that life-defining way that slow-cooked meat often is. 

But I substituted the pork shoulder with a 1 1/2-pound loin and cooked it up in a Dutch oven for roughly 30 minutes with the same proportions of sauce, poured over at the end. I skipped the whole fridge part.
