Chilli with slow cooked pulled pork


  1. Cut the pork into 6 slices and remove the skin.
  2. Peel, cut in half and finely chop the onion. Halve the peppers, remove any white pith, seeds and green stalk and chop finely.
  3. Put the stock cube in a bowl, add the chilli flakes and powder, garlic granules, paprika, cumin, brown sugar and basil, add some black pepper and a little salt – pour over the boiling water and stir until dissolved.
  4. Put the chopped peppers and onions into a slow cooker, top with the spiced boiling water and the 2 tins of chopped tomato – lay the pork strips on the top – gently push into the tomato – cover with the lid.
  5. Cook on high for 6-7 hours or on low for 9-10 hours (consult your cooker manual as all makes vary).
  6. Alternatively, cook in the oven in a covered casserole dish at 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3 for 5 hours.
  7. Heat through the red kidney beans and chickpeas with the liquid from the cans, then drain.
  8. Break/pull the pork with 2 forks into bite-sized pieces – add the beans – mix well and serve.
  9. Great served with tortillas, some soured cream dip and some grated cheddar cheese.
