1 onion, finely chopped
1 x 250g jar Ocean Spray® Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce.

a few drops hot chilli sauce, to taste

For the cranberry coleslaw:

2 medium carrots, peeled and grated

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Season the pork with the salt and pepper and add to the hot pan. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned on both sides.

Place the onions in the bottom of a slow cooker and top with the pork. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or until pork is tender. Remove pork and onion with slotted spoon; place on plate, reserving 240ml of the liquid. Discard remaining liquid. Return reserved liquid, Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce, chilli ketchup sauce to slow cooker. Stir to combine. Taste and add the hot chilli sauce to suit your taste.

For the coleslaw:
Mix together the cabbage, carrots, onion and Craisins® Dried Cranberries. Mix together the mayonnaise and yogurt and stir into the vegetables. Toss gently and leave in the fridge for 2 hours.

When the pork is cooked, shred the pork using a fork. Stir the pork and onion into the sauce in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Divide pork mixture evenly among buns and serve with the coleslaw.

To cook the pork into the oven
