READY IN: 6hrs
YIELD: 4 burgers




  • Preheat oven to 180degC. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large heavy-based oven-proof saucepan, over high heat. Cook the pork for 10 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add the sriracha, vinegar, sugar and water to the saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to the boil. Return the pork, cover with a lid, place in the oven and cook for 1.5hours. Remove from the oven, turn the pork over, cover and return to the oven for another 1.5hours or until tender.
  • Carefully remove the pork and place on an oven tray. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely cool.
  • Return the saucepan to medium heat and bring the sriracha mixture to the boil. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until thickened. Set aside to cool.
  • While the sauce is cooling slice the pork into 8 x 1.5cm thick slices. Heat 1tsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the bacon, turning, for 4-5minutes or until brown and crispy. Set aside and keep warm.
  • Using paper towel wipe the pan clean. Heat the remaining oil over high heat. Cook the pork slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until charred and warmed through.
  • Spread the base of the bun halves with mayonnaise and top with the lettuce, pork, sriracha sauce and bacon. Top with remaining bun halves to serve.
