Make pulled pork in the oven from char siu meat, aka Chinese BBQ pork. To get that sticky and sweet flavor of char siu, consider making low-carb hoisin sauce and stevia or another sweetener. Optionally, you can prepare the pork meat as describe in this recipe and roast uncovered in the oven 2-3 hours at 325 F.
