An American BBQ dish – well worth trying.


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp mild mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1.8kg boneless pork shoulder, cut into 4 pieces
  • 12 soft hamburger buns or ciabatta rolls, warmed
  • Gherkins
  • Crisps Chilli sauce (optional)


Step 1

Cook in either a slow –cooker or a very large pot. The slow cooker is best as the pork becomes more flavourful and tender.

Step 2

Add the following ingredients and mix well; the onion, tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper.

Step 3

Add the pork and coat well with the sauce and then cover. Cook on a very low setting until the pork is very tender (8-10 hours in the slow cooker on the low setting).

Step 4

Transfer the pork to a large bowl, and then increase the heat to high in the pot/ slow cooker so that it boils in order to thicken and reduce the sauce.

Step 5

While the sauce is reducing, with 2 forks, pull the pork into shreds. Return the shredded pork to the pot/slow cooker and toss with the sauce to combine.

Step 6

Split the rolls that you intend to use, add a heaped pile of the pulled pork and top with sliced gherkins. Serve with extra gherkins, chips and coleslaw.
