Smokey beans with pulled pork (serves 12-18)


  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 3 x 400g tin butter beans
  • 1200ml tomato passata
  • 1.5 cup beef stock
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • flat leaf parsley chopped finely
  • 1 small boneless pork shoulder, skin and excess fat removed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock


  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees.
  2. Place pork shoulder in a baking tin, pour over stock, wrap tightly with foil and slow roast for 3-4 hours.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan, stir in chopped onion and cook for 5 mins. Add butter beans, passata, beef stock, paprika and simmer for 10 minutes. Add parsley.
  4. Pull apart pork with 2 forks and serve with baked beans.

For grown ups, I highly recommend a paprika, salt and brown sugar rub on top of pork and a bit of white wine and chicken stock underneath whilst it's roasting... yum!!
