  1. Mist a heavy-based pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Cook the onion, pepper, garlic and chilli, stirring, for 3 minutes until soft. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Mist the same pan with cooking spray. Cook the pork, turning once, for 3-4 minutes until lightly browned all over. Add the onion mixture, tomatoes and vinegar. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour. Remove the lid and simmer for a further 30 minutes or until the pork is tender and the sauce thickens. Transfer the meat to a large plate and shred using two forks. Return to the pan, then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Mash the avocado with the lime juice in a small bowl, stir in the sweetcorn and coriander, then season well and set aside.
  4. Lightly toast the bread rolls. Divide the sweetcorn mixture, carrot, cabbage and pulled pork between the rolls, then serve with the extra coriander leaves and the extra chilli, if using.


You can make the pork mixture up to two days ahead: cover and chill, then reheat over a medium heat until it’s piping hot before serving.
