    Heat a large non-stick pan until very hot and sear the pork on all sides until golden brown. Transfer to your slow cooker. Add the onion and pepper, cook for a few mins until softened. Add a splash of water and scrape any bits from the bottom of the pan, then tip everything into the slow cooker.

    Add the Just Add Slow Cook Texas BBQ sauce, then cover with a lid. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs or on high for 4-5 hrs. Drain the juices from the meat into a measuring jug. Shred the pork using 2 forks, discarding the fat.

    Skim off the fat from the juices and pour over the meat. Keep warm until serving, or reheat. To assemble, pile the meat into the halved brioche buns, spoon over the BBQ sauce, top with coleslaw and pickles, and sandwich together.
