240ml passata
120ml tomato ketchup
2 tablespoons, plus 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons, plus 2 teaspoons lightly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
335g boneless pork tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat
335g boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 large onion, roughly chopped
Crushed red pepper, optional
Serving suggestion: Light sandwich buns and rinsed deli cole slaw

To make the sauce, place the tomato sauce, ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and garlic powder in the crock pot. Stir until mixed. Season both types of pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and add to the pot. Top with onion and lightly stir.

Cover and cook until pork is fully cooked, on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

Remove all the pork and place it in a large bowl. Shred each piece using 2 forks: one to hold the pork in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it. Return the shredded pork to the crock pot and mix well with the sauce.

If you're serving a group, keep the crock pot on its lowest setting, so the pork stays warm. Season with crushed red pepper, if using. Yum time!

Cook's Note: Alternatively, recipe can be baked in a preheated oven, covered, at 160°C for 3 to 4 hours.
