To cook the pork
  • 1 kg joint of pork
  • 2 ltr coke
BBQ sauce
  • 100 g tomato puree
  • 20 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
To cook the pork
  1. Simply add the joint to a slow cooker or sturdy extra-large casserole dish and pour over the coke.
  2. Cook on a high heat if using a slow cooker or 150°C in the oven for at least 5 hours.
  3. You know the pork is cooked long enough if you can tear it into shreds with a fork.
  4. Drain the meat and coke juices into a jug and skim off the fat.

To make the BBQ sauce
  1. Add the  BBQ sauce ingredients to a jug and stir to combine into a paste.

  2. Once your pork is cooked and drained, add 250ml-300ml of the meat/coke juice to the BBQ sauce ingredients and mix to combine.

To make the pulled pork
  1. Shred the meat and remove all fat and unwanted bits.
  2. Add the shredded meat back into the slow cooker/casserole dish and pour over the BBQ sauce, mix to combine.
  3. If using a slow cooker leave the lid ajar for the last 30-40mins still on high heat, stir occasionally. If returning to the oven keep the lid sealed for 30mins.
Recipe Notes

We love to have this either in brioche buns or as part of a meal with mash and veg. Either way it’s always a winner in this family.
