Slow Cooked Pulled Pork and Bean Tortilla Wraps with a Ketchup Sauce!
Slow cooked pulled pork, who doesn’t love it for a warming scrumptious dinner for sharing with guests? But in ketchup?? Bear with me!
I love how easy it is to make pulled pork, given enough time. All you need are a few ingredients to make an oozing rich and tasty dish – perfect for serving to a crowd. I made this sauce with ketchup (tomato sauce) which is a bit strange as I would normally use passata or tinned tomatoes but as you can imagine, it all went down a treat. This is a handy version as ketchup is pretty much a store cupboard staple if there are kids in the house.
My recipe also contains a blend of warming spices which give the dish a lovely full flavour and tingly lip deliciousness – perfect for these colder nights.
I served it in wraps with lettuce for the kids and with rice and a salad for the adults, it’s equally delicious served inside soft white baps.
I have a slow cooker that has a fry function which is brilliant for saving on the washing up, but you can start the dish in a frying pan and transfer to an ordinary slow cooker or cast iron pot in a low oven.
Slow Cooked Pulled Pork and Bean Tortilla Wraps with Ketchup – Recipe
- 700 gm smoked bacon joint
for the sauce:
- 1/2 cup of water
- 4 Tablespoons of ketchup
- 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon sriracha sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- a pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 tin baked beans
- 1 400 gm tin red kidney beans
Place the bacon joint fat side down in a heated pan or base of your multi function slow cooker and fry on a medium high heat until the fat starts to render and brown. Turn the joint and brown it all over. (About 10 minutes).
Add the half cup of water to the pan and bring to a gentle boil. Add all the remaining ingredients, apart from the beans, and stir gently to mix.
Reduce the heat to low, cover and leave to cook for 6 hours. (Or transfer from your pan into a cast iron casserole dish and leave in the oven for 6 hours on a low heat).
By now the pork should be pull apart soft, use a couple of forks to shred it into chunks.
Stir in beans, reheat and serve with the sides of your choice.
