Preheat oven 160°C/140°C fan forced.


Trim any excess fat from the pork shoulder. Make several deep incisions into the thickest part of the meat.


Place lemongrass, chillies, ginger and soy sauce into a large, heavy-based, oven-proof dish with lid; stir to combine. Add pork and toss to coat in marinade. Pour over cooking wine and ½ cup (125ml) water. Place a sheet of crumpled baking paper over pork, and cover dish with lid.


Cook for 4 hours or until pork is tender.


Shred the pork with two forks. Serve pork with brioche buns, mayonnaise and dressed salad.

This recipe can also be made in a slow cooker on a low heat for 8 hours. A large cut of meat is necessary for such a long cook. Leftovers from this recipe can be frozen or used as a filling for lunch wraps or after-school jaffles.
