  • DifficultyEasy
1 (2 1/4kg) boneless butt roast or pork shoulder roast
2 tbsps Paula's butt massage seasoning (a blend of paprika, garlic and onion powder)
1 (450g) bag tri-colour coleslaw mix
56g celery, diced
2 tbsps sweet pickle relish
56g, plus 2 tbsp barbeque sauce
1 tsp house seasoning, recipe follows
2 (450g) packages egg roll wrappers
Vegetable oil or peanut oil, for frying
Barbeque sauce, for dipping, optional

For the house seasoning

225g salt
56g black pepper
56g garlic powder
1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/Gas 4. Line a roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminium foil. Place the pork joint in the pan.

2) Rub the rib joint massage seasoning all over the joint. Cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminium foil and bake for 3 hours, or until tender. Allow the meat to cool to the touch and then shred with a fork.

3) In a large bowl, combine 560g of the shredded pork (reserve any leftover meat for another meal), the coleslaw mix, celery and pickle relish.

4) In a small bowl, combine the barbeque sauce and house seasoning. Pour over the pork mixture, tossing gently to coat.

5) Place 1 spring roll wrapper on a clean flat surface with one corner pointing towards you. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the corners with water.

6) Spoon 75g of the pork filling into the centre of each spring roll wrapper. Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling. Fold the left and right corners over the filling. Tightly roll the filled end towards the remaining corner, pressing gently to seal. The end result should look like an envelope.

7) Pour oil to a depth of 5cm into a deep-fryer or large heavy saucepan. Heat the oil to 180 degrees C.

8) Fry the spring rolls in batches, for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with barbeque sauce for dipping.
