Method

 
In a heavy based saucepan, melt the butter, add other ingredients and combine well on low heat.

Turn stove on high and brown pork slightly all round but be careful to not overdo it as the outer layer might be too cooked to pull.

Take off the heat and wrap in heavy duty foil with the marinade and place on a baking tray. Bake at 160°C for about 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool.

Once the pork has cooled take a fork and start stripping the meat. It should be very stringy.

Place the remaining marinade back into the saucepan (you can add a bit more honey) and bring to a simmer.

Add the pulled pork and let it coat in the marinade that is now becoming thick and sticky. Serve on a warmed Pita bread with coleslaw.
