This Southern-style pork & slaw recipe by Jamie Oliver was recommended to me by my running friend, Sarah – check out her blog. This is one of the longest recipes of the year, but don’t let that put you off, it is all about leaving it alone in the oven. Jamie Oliver regards this as a ‘super easy’ recipe so how hard can that be!

Give it a go, it is well worth it. The quantities are huge, so this is a great recipe if you are having friends around. However don’t panic about the leftovers, as they make delicious sandwiches for lunch.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to full whack. Score the pork skin about 1cm deep all over with a sharp knife. Drizzle a little olive oil over the pork and season generously with sea salt, black pepper and the paprika.

2
Done

Rub the flavours all over the skin, then place your pork in a roasting tray in the middle of the oven and immediately turn the temperature down to 160ºC/320ºF/gas 3

3
Done

Cook for about 4 hours, basting occasionally with the juices from the tray, then turn the oven down to 150ºC/300ºF/gas 2 and continue to cook for another 2 hours, or until you can pull the meat apart really easily.

4
Done

Remove the crackling and put it to one side, then remove any fat from the tray. Pull all the pork apart, discarding any bones and fat as you go, and use 2 forks to break the meat into small- and medium-sized pieces. Cover with foil until needed.

5
Done

To make the coleslaw, finely slice all the veg (peeling and trimming first, if necessary) or use a food processor or box grater, then very finely slice the apples. Put them into a large bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

6
Done

Add the mayonnaise, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of cayenne and the red wine vinegar. Mix everything together until you’ve got a perfect coleslaw texture. Taste and season to perfection.

7
Done

Pick the mint leaves and finely chop them on a large board. Deseed and finely chop the chilli. Drizzle the olive oil and red wine vinegar all over the chilli and mint and add a good pinch of salt. Add this to the tray of pulled pork and mix it all together.

8
Done

Serve the dressed pork in a pile on to a plate next to some crackling and a good portion of that wonderful coleslaw. Finish the whole plate off with a little salt and a hit of paprika and tuck in with a lovely cold beer.
