To serve

  • 12 warm chapatis or small wraps
  • chunky cucumber raita (see goes well with) and mango chutney

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the onion, garlic and ginger for about 10 mins. Stir in the spices, pour in the vinegar and stir well. Tip into the slow cooker (we used a 6.5-litre model) and add 1 tsp salt and about 20 turns of a black pepper mill. Add the pork joint, turn in the mixture to coat it, then arrange it in the pot so it is rind-side down. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hrs.

  2. Meanwhile, make the salad. Mix the carrot with the onion, tomato and coriander, then toss just before serving with the lemon juice and oil.

  3. Remove the rind and fat from the pork and skim all the fat from the juices, then shred the meat into the juices. To serve, put some meat and salad on one side of a chapati, then top with the raita and chutney, fold over and eat with your hands.

Absolutely loved this, in normal wraps with regular grated carrot and just plain Greek yogurt. Simple and very tasty. The leftovers were mixed with some curry paste, sliced green pepper and courgettes, and a tin of coconut milk for a delicious curry, which made another two meals (2 adults 2 children). Recommended!!

This was very simple but my only issue is that it came out very vinegary. Will need to find a way to tone this down

Good flavour but the pork was stringy and very chewy. I would try it again in case it was the meat at fault

Do you really have so little liquid in the slow cooker 225ml cider vinegar and that's it)?
