Instructions

  1. Place pork, lemongrass, garlic, onion, ginger, soy and fish sauces, stock, vinegar and stevia in a medium saucepan and heat over high heat (see tips). Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1½ hours or until pork is tender. Transfer pork to a plate.
  2. Bring cooking liquid to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until reduced by half. Remove lemongrass.
  3. Meanwhile, using 2 forks, coarsely shred pork. Return pork to cooking liquid. Stir to combine.
  4. Combine wombok, beans and capsicum in a bowl. Spread bread bases with mayonnaise. Top with pork, cabbage mixture and coriander. Sandwich with roll tops to serve.

Notes

TIPS: Shredded pork mixture can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months. Place the pork side by side in the pan; the liquid should come about halfway up the sides. Add a little more liquid if it’s evaporating too quickly.
