COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat olive oil in a casserole dish on a high heat over the stove and brown pork roast on all sides. Add bacon, carrots, onion and garlic and cook stirring for 2 minutes. Cover with water and place the lid on.

2. Place in a pre-heated oven at 120°C and cook for 3 hours until pork is soft.

3. Remove from oven and place pork on a plate. Strain the stock and set aside 200ml to make your sauce (remaining stock and vegetables can be frozen for later use).

4. To make the glaze, heat olive oil in a saucepan and sweat the glaze ingredients together. Stir in sauce ingredients and reduce for 15-20 minutes or until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Season with sugar and / or vinegar to taste.

5. Shred meat using two forks and place into a frying pan, mix in glaze until the pork is moist but not too wet. Heat until warmed through.

6. Serve in a bun with pickles and slaw.
