For the pork

  • 2 pork shanks
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoon paprika

For the sauce

  • 150 g chopped pineapple
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 300 ml water
  • 3 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoon Bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sugar


  • Score the pork and place on a rack over an oven tray.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients and rub well into the skin.
  • Cover the tray with foil and roast at 140C/275F/GAS1 for about 7 hours.
  • Place the shanks on the grill to crisp the skin.
  • Make the sauce by putting all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat.
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves and then simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Pull off the pork crackling and shred the meat with two forks.
  • Serve with the warm sauce.


Simmer the sauce for longer if you prefer a thicker sauce or mix a little cornflour with water and add to the hot sauce while in the saucepan.
