Get your friends round and impress them with these amazing slow-cooked shoulder of pork burgers. Marinate your pork overnight and slow cook for about 6-8 hours
- Make in advance
To save space when marinating the pork in sauce, put it in a freezer bag and seal: This also makes it easy to massage the sauce around the meat so it’s evenly coated.
- 1.5-2kg (3-4lb) boneless pork shoulder
For the sauce:
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
- 8 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 4 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp paprika
- 2 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Baps, coleslaw and chips, to serve
- To make the sauce: Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Spread the sauce thickly over the pork and put it in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave it to marinate in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight.
- Put the pork and sauce into a slow cooker and place on the low heat setting for 8-10 hours, without opening the lid, or until the pork is very tender. Or, cook in a covered dish in the oven at 140°C/275°F/Gas Mark 1 for about 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender, basting it occasionally with the sauce.
- Remove the pork from the slow cooker or oven and leave it to rest for about 10 mins.
- Pour the liquid into a small pan and skim off any fat. Boil to reduce and thicken slightly.
- Place the pork on a board and cut off the skin and any visible fat. Use 2 forks to shred the meat into small pieces and stir into the sauce. Serve hot in baps, along with coleslaw and chips
