•    2kg boneless pork shoulder roast, rind removed, excess fat trimmed
•    2 teaspoons olive oil
•    500ml (2 cups) cold water
•    80ml (1/3 cup) hoisin sauce
•    60ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
•    4 garlic cloves, peeled, halved
•    4cm-piece fresh ginger, peeled, thickly sliced
•    2 whole star anise
•    2 cinnamon sticks
•    12 mini extra soft lunch rolls, warmed, halved
•    50g butter, at room temperature

Cucumber & apple pickle
•    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
•    3 teaspoons caster sugar
•    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
•    3 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled into ribbons
•    1 Granny Smith apple, cut into matchsticks

Step 1
Preheat oven to 150C. Place pork on a chopping board. Cut a horizontal slit in the thick end (don’t cut all the way through) and open to lie flat in one piece, about 4cm thick. Season.

Step 2
Heat oil in a roasting pan over medium-high heat. Cook pork, turning, for 6 minutes or until brown.

Step 3
Combine water, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, star anise and cinnamon in a large jug. Pour over pork. Cover with foil. Bake, turning once and basting occasionally, for 2 1/2 hours or until pork is very tender. Remove foil and cool in pan for 30 minutes.

Step 4
Transfer the pork to a chopping board, reserving the braising liquid. Shred the meat, discarding any fat. Transfer to a bowl. Pour reserved braising liquid into a jug. Use a metal spoon to skim and discard fat from the surface. Add 80ml (1/3 cup) braising liquid to pork. Toss to combine.

Step 5
Meanwhile, to make the cucumber and apple pickle, whisk the vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the cucumber and apple. Toss to combine. Stand for 8 minutes. Drain.

Step 6
Spread the roll bases with butter. Top with pickle, pork and roll tops.
