Smokey & Sweet Pulled Pork

Few things are as easy to eat as a fresh roll with juicy pulled pork belly. This may be the easiest cooking you have ever done and the results are over-the-top delicious!

3kg pork belly, deboned and skin removed

15ml sweet smoked paprika Spanish paprika


1,5litre apple juice

Preheat your oven to 150℃.

Put the pork on a work surface and generously salt it all over.

Sprinkle the smoked paprika over the meat and then rub/massage it all over the meat.

Place the belly in a roasting tin and pour in the apple juice.

Cover and seal the roasting tin with aluminium foil and place it in the oven to cook for at least 7 hours. This is ideal to do overnight.

Once the meat is done, remove from the oven and take the meat from the roasting tin.

Pour the cooking juices and what is left of the apple juice into a saucepan and place it on a medium high heat. Allow to simmer until the liquid has reduced and concentrated. This should take about 20 – 30 minutes.

In the meantime, take two forks and pull the meat from the belly apart.

Spoon the reduced cooking liquid over the pulled meat and mix through.

Serve with an apple and coleslaw salad on a fresh roll.
