Serves 4
8 Dinner rolls
Whole-egg mayonnaise, for spreading
4 dill-pickle cucumbers, sliced
Pulled Pork
2 tablespoons olive oil
600 g (1 lb 5 oz) boneless pork shoulder
2 teaspoons mild smoked paprika
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup (125 ml/4 fl oz) chicken stock
3 tablespoons soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cm ( 3/4 in) piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange
2 cups (150 g/5 oz) finely shredded red cabbage
1/2 carrot, grated
1 large handful coriander (cilantro)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lime

Step 1

To prepare the pulled pork, heat the oil in a heavy lidded frying pan over medium–high heat.

Step 2

Coat the pork in the paprika, chili and cumin.

Step 3

Cook the pork for 4–5 minutes, or until browned all over.

Step 4

Add the chicken stock, orange zest and juice, sugar, vinegar, tomato ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and ginger to the pan and bring to the boil. Decrease the heat, cover and gently simmer for 1 1/2 hours, or until tender.

Step 5

Remove the pork from the liquid and set aside on a plate to cool slightly. Simmer the liquid over medium heat, for 5–10 minutes, until reduced to make a thick sauce. Shred the pork, add to the sauce and stir to coat.

Step 6

To prepare the coleslaw, combine the cabbage, carrot and coriander in a medium-sized bowl. Combine the
lime juice, maple syrup and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour over the coleslaw and toss to coat.

Step 7

Cut the rolls in half horizontally and spread the mayonnaise on the lids. Divide the pulled pork between the bases, top with coleslaw and cover with the lids. Serve 2 sliders per person with dill pickles alongside.
