Pulled Pork Bao Buns
This is a great dish to feed a crowd. So little prep is required. The flavours all infuse to create deliciously tender pulled pork. Simply grab the fresh slaw made by Farro at the deli counter and some lotus leaf buns or sliders for a meal to share.
Pre-heat oven to 160 C . Place the onions, garlic and bay leaves at the bottom of a casserole dish. Place the pork on top, rub with the salt.
Then add the lime juice, orange juice, tinned tomatoes and half of a jar of the BBQ sauce. Season with pepper and salt. Fold it all together to coat. If you have time you can leave it to marinate for 20 minutes or even better overnight.
If you don’t have time, it can go straight in the oven. Place the lid on the dish and put it in the oven for 4-5 hours until pork is falling apart.
Remove from the oven and lift into a bowl. Discard the skin and bay leaves and remove the bone.
Fold in a few extra tablespoons of BBQ sauce and pull pork apart with a fork. Transfer to a serving dish with the remaining juices and scatter with chopped coriander.
Serve with lotus leaf buns (steam to packed instructions) and Farro slaw with extra coriander and Morepork sauce so people can make their own.
Could also be served with sliders.
