Recipe Ingredients

  • 1.2kg boneless pork shoulder, rolled
  • Sea salt flakes and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped vegetables (onion, celery, leek)
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1½ cups roasted capsicums, sliced
  • 1 litre beef stock


Serves 8

  1. Untie pork shoulder and use a sharp knife to cut into large chunks. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Fry the pork pieces in a large heavy-based lidded saucepan over a high heat for 5 minutes, until browned.
  3. Add the vegetables and garlic, then cook for 3 more minutes. Mix in the capsicums and stock, then top up with water to cover. If using a slow-cooker, transfer at this stage to cooking insert. Fit the lid, then simmer with the lid slightly ajar for 3 hours, until the pork is tender. If using a slow-cooker, cook on low heat for 6-8 hours. Skim excess oil from surface before serving.
