Pork joint after 8 hours, shredded and ready to serve.

We make pulled pork fairly regularly - and this is my slow cooker variation of The renowned Mr Brown Pulled Pork - Oriental, originally from FotoosVanRobin recipes.

Ideally this should also marinade for 12 hours in the fridge to allow the flavours to penetrate. However as there are lots of powerful spices in this, coupled with an 8 hour cook, I think it will be just as good without the extended marinating.

The meat is great as a main meal with vegetables and potatoes or with a salad or even as a sandwich filler. My favourite way is to have it as a kebab-type filling in pitta bread with salad.

I have included this in the North American recipe category as a homage to the original.

Method

  1. Mix the spices, cut deep slashes on both sides of the joint so you have lots af places to pack the rub into.
  2. Carefully slice the rind from the joint and discard it.
  3. Ensure that the rub fills all of the cuts you've made and all surfaces are well covered.
  4. Chop the apple and onion and place in the base of the slow cooker
  5. Sit the pork on top of the onions and apples.
  6. Pour the wine down the side of the cooker so as not to wash off the rub.
  7. Slow cook on low for 8 hours. It never seems to hurt if you cook a dish like this for longer, so don't worry if you have to leave it cooking for longer.
  8. If you get the chance, turn the meat halfway through the cooking process
  9. 30 minutes before you are ready to serve, use two forks and shred the meat while it's still in the slow cooker and then leave it to cook in the gravy for the final 30 minutes.

Serving suggestions

Shred with two forks and serve in pitta breads with a green salad.
