“This delicious sandwich is worth the wait. The pork belly takes three hours to cook, so I like to make more than I need and freeze the leftovers to serve with noodles for a quick meal.” – Keletso Motau


  • 1 kg pork belly, skin removed
  • 1 x 3 cm piece ginger, roughly chopped
  • 1⁄2 onion, roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 T Woolworths
  • 2 T honey
  • 4 T brown sugar
  • 4 T soya sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup water
  • 2 T carrot, sliced julienne
  • 1 baby cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 50 g radish, thinly sliced
  • 20 g mint
  • 2 T sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 T Woolworths Asian Thai-style lime-and-chilli dressing
  • 2 loaves Woolworths Rustica
  • 70 g Woolworths free-range chicken liver pâté

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the pork in a roasting dish with the ginger, onion
and garlic.

2. In a bowl, mix the miso, honey, sugar, soya sauce and water until the miso paste has dissolved, then pour over the pork.

3. Cover the pork tightly with foil, place in the oven to cook for 3 hours, turning in the sauce halfway through.

4. Once cooked, remove the aromatics from the sauce, then shred the pork in the sauce.

5. In a bowl, mix the carrot, cabbage, radish and mint. Add the sesame seeds and dressing.

6. Cut the bread in half lengthways. Spread the pâté onto half and the mayonnaise onto the other half.
