Summer Slow Cooker Recipe - Jamaican Jerk Burritos

SERVES 12 | PREP 10 Mins | COOK 9 Hours

Pull those slow cookers out, these amazing machines are not just for winter. They're extra amazing in summer because it means you don't have to be in the kitchen while something yummy is cooking. I love using my slow cooker to make a big chunk of meat, it always tastes better and will last for days. This pork takes just 80 minutes using the Philips All-In-One, pressure cooker function, or 9 hours if you'd like to use the slow cooker option.

Ingredients

  • Pork
  • 2.5 kg pork shoulder, with bone in
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 dried bay leaves
  • 3 tbsp dried cumin seeds
  • 1 ½ tbsp all spice
  • 2 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 440g tin diced pineapple
  • Salt & pepper, for seasoning
  • Salad
  • ¼ red cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • ½ bunch kale
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 10 snow peas
  • Salad dressing
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Method

  • Step 1
  • To make the pork marinade, drain the juice from the pineapple and place it in a food processor with all the dry spices.Blitz until a sauce is formed. Season the pork with salt and pepper and then coat in the marinade. Ideally, leave it to marinate overnight.
  • Step 2
  • Place the pork in the All-In-One cooker bowl with the pineapple chunks and cook for 80 minutes using the pressure cooker function or for 9 hours on low using the slow cooker setting. The pork will be ready when a fork easily shreds the meat.
  • Step 3
  • Finely slice all salad ingredients (cabbage, carrot, kale, capsicum and snow peas) and toss together in a bowl. Place all dressing ingredients ( tahini, olive oil and maple syrup) in a glass jar and shake well to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serving Suggestion
  • Shred the pork and stir it through the sauce. If you find the sauce is too wet, pop it in a saucepan over a high heat and cook for 5 minutes until it thickens. Dress the salad and serve alongside the platter of shredded pork and tortillas for guests to assemble their own burritos at the table.

Stacey Clare's Nutritional Tip

  • It always takes a little extra effort to make your own sauce but the taste and the health benefits are amazing. This sauce is just as nice with baked fish or grilled steak. It can even be frozen in ice cubes for later use.
