Pork Belly Sliders with Cheesy Apple 'Slaw

Feed a crowd with these BBQ pork belly sliders stuffed full of cheesy apple 'slaw! The pork belly is oven-braised in apple juice to keep it nice and tender before brushing with sticky BBQ sauce and finishing on the BBQ or under the grill. For a fresh summery vibe, each slider is generously filled with a cheesy apple coleslaw made with Primula Cheese 'N' Chives; an ideal flavour combo that works beautifully with the BBQ pork to squeeze every bit of joy out of summer!

  • 3-5 tbsp BBQ sauce of choice

  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 75g Primula Cheese 'N' Chives
  • 1/4 white cabbage, shredded

How you do it
How you do it
  • 1. Pre-heat oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.
  • Place the pork belly strips on a baking tray and pour in the apple juice. Wrap the tray in tin foil and cook for 1.5hrs, checking/turning the pork periodically
  • Meanwhile, make the coleslaw by first mixing the lime juice, crème fraîche and Primula Cheese 'N' Chives together. Place the prepared vegetables in a bowl and pour over 2/3s of the cheesy mix, stir well to combine. Season to taste and add the fresh coriander. Set aside.
  • Once the pork belly is cooked through and tender, brush each piece generously with BBQ sauce and sear on the BBQ for 3-5mins on each side – alternatively do this under the grill. Each pork belly strip can be cut into 3 pieces to fill the buns.
  • To serve, spread a little of the remaining lime juice, crème fraîche and Primula Cheese 'N' Chives mix into each slider bun before stuffing in the 'slaw, a piece of pork belly and any extras you fancy!
