Ingredients

  • 1 onion peeled and cut into 8 chunks

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tins coconut milk

  • 2 inch ginger peeled and thinly sliced

  • 3lb boneless pork butt/shoulder roast

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped

  • 1 tsp coriander

  • 8 lime wedges (to garnish)

Method

  1. Mix together the coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Use your fingers to rub the seasonings all over the roast.
  2. Place the meat in a slow cooker and surround with onions, garlic, ginger and the half can of coconut milk.
  3. The roast will give off moisture and fat while cooking, doubling or tripling the amount of broth by the time the roast is ready.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 5 to 6 hours or on low for 8 to 10 hours. Although both cooking temperatures give delicious results, meat cooked on low will be the most tender.

Handy Hint

I used coconut cream because I had bought this mistakenly. For a small joint (1kg) I used the whole carton. I also added the juice of a lime, a chopped red chilli and some chopped coriander.

    Does definitely produce a lot more liquid than you might imagine at the outset, would probably try with coconut cream over milk next time - and there will definitely be a next time, whole family loved it :)

    This was easy and delicious.... Total win! I served with rice for the family & cauliflower rice for me, and a few veg, used the juices from the slow cooker as a 'gravy' for flavour. Everyone loved it, will definitely cook again.
