2. Slather all over the pork then put into a slow cooker set on LOW with the cup of water. Cook for 4-5 hours until the pork is very tender. Leg is a lean cut so there wont be too much fat but it wont fall part like belly or shoulder would.

4. Skim any fat off the remaining juices and transfer to a small saucepan and bring to the boil for 5 minutes or so to reduce.

5. Carve the pork into thick slices or chunks and drizzle with the sweet & sour gravy.
