Watch how to make slow-cooked pork with herb and garlic rub

Print this recipe
A real treat of a recipe; slow cooked pork, with a fabulous herb and garlic rub and the vegetables cooked alongside. Pork, possibly more than any other meat, is just perfect for the long slow cooking process.  It's fat renders the meat beautifully tender and moist, and it's mild flavor is the perfect vehicle for herbs and aromatics.
Cut away some of that fat though, but leave enough on to baste everything with porky deliciousness for a dish that the whole family will love.
