To make this Slow Roast Pork And Apple Sauce Baps recipe, follow the below steps:

  1. Marinade the meat the day before you want to cook it to let the flavors infuse overnight
  2. In a bowl mix all the marinade ingredients except the ketchup then rub all over the pork joint
  3. Place in a dish and cover with foil. Pop in the fridge overnight
  4. The next morning, preheat the oven to 350°F fan/400°F/Gas 6
  5. Transfer the meat to a non-stick roasting tin and cook in the oven for half an hour
  6. Take the tin out and reduce the oven temperature to 280°F fan/330°F/Gas 2-3
  7. Add a cup of water to the bottom of the tray and cover the meat well with foil
  8. Return to the oven and cook for a further 5 ½ hours, basting and turning a couple of times
  9. While the pork is cooking make the apple sauce. Place the diced apples into a saucepan with the butter and sugar and cover with the lid
  10. Cook over a gentle heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened well, with some broken down but with some chunks remaining. Set aside
  11. Remove the meat from the oven and carefully drain the juices from the tin into a small saucepan. Keep the meat warm
  12. Bring the juices to a simmer for about 5 minutes until slightly reduced then stir through the ketchup and cook for another minute or so to make a gravy. Pour into a small jug or bowl
  13. Carve the meat into rustic chunky slices and pile into the burger buns with some watercress and a dollop of apple sauce, with the jug of gravy on the side for people to add their own

Bon appétit!
