Slow Roasted Pulled Pork With Spring Green Salad

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 3½ hours

Serves 4


  • 1kg boneless pork leg joint
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 400ml hot chicken stock

For the spring greens salad:

  • 200g bag sliced Cavolo Nero
  • 2 Leeks, sliced (500g)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard (20g)


1. Preheat the oven to 220oC, gas mark 7.

Cook’s tip

Great for summer eating, just chill the spring green salad and serve in toasted baps. Serve warm as an alternative to a roast dinner.
