Chinese-style pulled pork with five-spice sauce & slaw

Oriental spices turn slow-roasted pork into something really special


Serves 4

FREEZABLE (pork only)

Ready in about 3 hours 30 minutes

6 onions, halved or quartered

1 bulb of garlic, cloves separated and peeled

5cm piece fresh root ginger, sliced

2 star anise

1 cinnamon stick

2 tsp Chinese five-spice

1.5kg lean shoulder of pork, visible fat removed

150ml light soy sauce

For the slaw:

1 large carrot, peeled and finely shredded

1 cucumber, finely shredded

1 red onion, finely sliced

½ small green cabbage, finely shredded

Juice of 2 lemons

For the sauce:

400g passata

150ml oyster sauce

1-2 tsp Chinese five-spice

1 Preheat your oven to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas 3. Place the onions, garlic, ginger, star anise and cinnamon stick in a single layer on the base of a non-stick roasting tin. Rub the five-spice all over the pork, season and place on top of the onions.

2 Pour the soy sauce around the pork, then cover the tin with baking paper and then foil. Roast for 2½ hours. Remove the foil and paper, and roast for a further 45 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, make the slaw. Toss all the ingredients together in a bowl. Season and chill until ready to serve.

4 For the sauce, put all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring often, until thickened and glossy. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

5 Discard the onions, garlic and spices and ‘pull’ the pork by placing a fork in the shoulder and shredding the meat into small pieces with another fork. Pile the pork onto a platter. Serve with the sauce and slaw.
