Method
Step 1
Preheat the slow cooker on low. Put onions, Gregg's cinnamon Quill and Gregg's Whole Star Anise into the slow cooker. Sprinkle over Gregg’s Ground Chinese Five Spice. Place the pork on the onions and spices. Mix together Wattie’s Creations Asian Plum Sauce and rice wine. Pour over the pork.
Step 2
Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, until the meat pulls away from the bone. Remove the pork from the slow cooker. Pour the remaining sauce and onions into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and allow the sauce to reduce to approximately ½ cup.
Step 3
Shred the pork with 2 forks. Mix through the reduced sauce and onions to coat the pork.
Step 4
Fill Bao buns with pork, cucumber ribbons, sliced spring onions, thinly sliced red capsicum, fresh coriander leaves and a drizzle of extra plum sauce.
Tips
If your belly pork has the skin (rind) on, remove it and cook separately to make crackling which can be served in the Bao Buns with the pulled pork. To make perfect crackling - rub salt into the rind. Refrigerate for 1-2 hrs or ideally overnight to allow the rind to dry out. Preheat oven to 200°C (fan assisted). Place rind - skin side up onto a rack which is sat over a shallow baking dish. Roast for 40-45 minutes or until the rind is golden and crispy. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before cutting into pieces.
To make cucumber ribbons, cut your telegraph cucumber to a length of about 10cm, using a potato peeler or mandolin peel or slice lengthwise into thin ribbons.
This recipe can be cooked in a casserole dish in an oven 150°C (fan assisted), adding an extra ½ cup of water for 3 ½ - 4 hours or until the meat falls from the bone. Reducing the sauce at the end of cooking on the stove top will not be necessary.
