Ingredients:
(Serves 6)

1.2kg pork shoulder
1tbsp olive oil
4tbsp French’s Kansas City Classic BBQ Sauce
Salt

For the gravy:
1 onion, finely chopped
Oil, for frying
2tsp gravy granules
150ml boiling water
3tbsp French’s Kansas City Classic BBQ Sauce

For the slaw:
Half a small red cabbage, shredded
1 small carrot, shredded or grated
2 spring onions, sliced
1tsp black onion seeds
2tsp French’s Classic Yellow Mustard
1tbsp crème fraiche

To serve:
Lettuce
Crusty baps
Gherkins and chilli slices (optional)

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/Gas mark 6. Place the pork in a roasting tin, rub in the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30 minutes then reduce the oven temp to 150C, brush two tablespoons of French’s Kansas City Classic BBQ Sauce all over and cook for another two and a half hours. Cover with foil and leave to rest for 30 minutes, then pull apart using two forks. Stir in the last two tablespoons of BBQ sauce.

2. For the gravy, heat some oil in a pan and fry the onion for 10 minutes until softened. Add the gravy granules and 150ml boiling water, then stir over a low heat until thick. Remove from the heat and stir in the French’s Kansas City Classic BBQ Sauce, keep warm.

3. To make the slaw, combine the cabbage, carrot, spring onions and seeds in a large bowl. Mix together the French’s Classic Yellow Mustard and crème fraiche and stir into the cabbage.

4. Split the baps, top with the lettuce, some pork, slaw, gherkins and chilli, and serve the hot gravy alongside.
