Ingredients
  • 1 pork joint, about 1.75kg
  • 300ml passata
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp black treacle
  • 1 tsp English mustard
  • 2 level tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 level tsp Asda Dried Minced Garlic
  • Watercress, to serve
  • Extra special coleslaw, to serve
  • Rolls, to serve
Method
  • Remove the skin and most of the fat from the pork, then put in the slow cooker. Put the passata in a small pan with the sweet chilli sauce, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, treacle, mustard, paprika and dried garlic. Stir over a low heat until evenly blended and hot, but not boiling.

  • Pour the passata mixture over the meat and slow cook for 10 hours (5 hours in the oven).

  • Remove the meat and set aside. Pour the cooking liquid into a large pan and boil fast, uncovered, until it is reduced by about half.

  • Pull the meat apart using two forks. Serve drizzled with sauce in the rolls, with the watercress and coleslaw on the side.
