Tomorrow is World Gin Day,  the perfect excuse to gather your friends and enjoy the day indoors, while sipping on a selection of your favourite gins. 

Gin is a great drink to enjoy on it's own, but it can also be paired with delicious meaty dishes. 

Sliders are easy to make, a great light snack and they are the perfect gap fillers. 

Add this pulled pork slider to your menu tomorrow and let the weekend beGIN!

Pulled Pork Sliders


±1.5 kg boneless pork shoulder

1 tin unseasoned chopped tomato

1/2 cup treacle sugar

3 large chopped garlic cloves

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons Angostura aromatic bitters

3 tablespoons chilli powder

1 tablespoon cooking oil

1 teaspoon salt 

Cut pork shoulder across the grain into 5cm thick slices.

Mix together 2 tablespoons Angostura aromatic bitters, 2 tablespoons chilli powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Let it stand for ten minutes.

Rub chili mixture into meat.

Heat oil in a pot or wide pan with lid. Add meat and brown on both sides for about 15 minutes total. Remove meat to a plate and keep warm.

(While meat browns, combine sauce ingredients.)

Combine 1 can chopped tomato, 1/2 cup treacle sugar, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon Angostura aromatic bitters, 1 tablespoon chili powder and 3 large chopped garlic cloves. Stir well.

Pour the sauce into a hot empty pan and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan.

Return meat to pan; spoon sauce over meat.

Cover and cook on low heat for 1 hour 15 minutes, rearranging meat halfway through.

Transfer meat to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm.

To serve, pull meat apart and place on rolls with extra sauce.
