Slow cooking is incredibly popular at this time of year, and really, what's not to like. The effort is minimal and the results are delicious. This pork has a good kick to it with the spices, so goes well as part of a Mexican feast. Served with soft tacos, tangy yoghurt, fresh limes, some coriander and a simple slaw, it makes a fun, healthy and tasty winter meal. It's also good in slider buns for a substantial canape if you're entertaining. Add a bit of mayo and some slaw and you're done. Simple and impressive.
