Makes 12



Ingredients



Pulled Pork



1kg pork shoulder



Marinade



2 shallot, very finely chopped


1 tbsp. smoked paprika


2 tsp English mustard powder


200g BBQ sauce


4 tbsp red wine vinegar


1 tbsp soft brown sugar


2 tbsp maple syrup



For the coleslaw



300g red cabbage, finely shredded


100g carrots, grated


1 red onion, finely sliced


4 tbsp mayonnaise


1 tsp Dijon mustard


salt and ground black pepper



To serve



12 x 7.5cm brioche or burger buns, sliced



Method






  1. Place the pork in a roasting tin then combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and pour over the meat. Cover and set aside in the fridge for at least 12 hours.


  2. Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F/Gas 2). Cover the roasting tin with foil and cook in the oven for 4-5 hours. Check every hour that the joint is not drying out and add extra BBQ sauce if necessary.


  3. After for 4 hours, check to see if the meat is cooked, it should just fall apart. Then remove from the oven and leave to rest before removing any excess fat and ‘pulling’ the pork with 2 forks, shredding the meat into small pieces. Pour the sticky sauce over the meat and stir until combined.


  4. Meanwhile mix the coleslaw ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste, chill until required.


  5. Divide the pulled pork between the rolls then top with a serving of coleslaw.



 



Tip



The sauce should be thick and sticky but if you find that it is thin then transfer it to a pan and heat briskly for a couple of minutes until it thickens.



Wine pairing



The more in ingredients you add in a recipe, like in this case, the more a wine can struggle. Because of the sweetness of some of the ingredients, you should stick to a riper red wine such as:
