Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Combine the sucanat and spices, then use this mixture to coat the meat. Let it set about 2 h in the refrigerator (up to overnight).
  2. Slice the onion, then put it in the bottom of the ceramic cooking pot. Put the meat on top of the onion. In a small bowl, mix the orange marmalade, water and rum, then pour the mixture on top.
  3. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 8-9 h, or until the meat is very tender.
  4. Transfer the meat to a cutting board. Cover with foil then let stand 10 min before slicing.
  5. Meanwhile transfer the cooking juices to a small saucepan. Stir in the arrowroot and cook over medium heat until the sauce has thickened, about 5 min. Adjust the seasoning.
  6. Serve the meat with the sauce.
