The Asian twist to this popular recipe makes for a great meal. Pile the succulent pork into toasted brioche buns or enjoy with pan fried leafy greens and white rice.

The secret behind this hassle free and tender pork dish is a slow cooker. My recent purchase was not expensive and I love being able to prepare dinner early and have it ready just when I need it.

If you don't have a slow cooker, cover and cook on low in your oven.

In the frying pan, fry the onion, garlic and ginger until just softening.
Add in half the pomegranate juice and simmer for a few minutes until it starts to reduce.
Next add in the spices, sugar, soy sauce and rest of the pomegranate juice.

Stir through the plum jam until it dissolves, place the pork back in the pan and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Turn the pork a couple of times so it's full coated in the marinade sauce.

Place everything in a slow cooker and set the temperature to low. Cook for 6-8 hours.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with a couple of forks. It should be tender and fall apart easily.
