Method

  1. 1 Heat the oven to 150˚C/130˚C fan/gas 4.

  4. 4 Set aside the pork and pour the juices into a pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, until reduced to a rich sauce.

    The pork was very tasty and we used the technique to make a pulled pork meal and didn't make it into a burger. I couldn't find Apricot Nectar so puréed a can of apricots in juice which worked just as well.
