- Cover with aluminium foil and continue cooking for three more hours (basting every half hour) or until the meat can be pulled apart with two spoons. Remove and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Combine together the cabbages, apple, carrot and parsley. Fold in a little mayonnaise and set aside.
- Lightly toast the cut buns, top each with a little mayonnaise, the slaw and the pulled pork.
