Pulled Pork Sliders

Pulled pork sliders…just the name conjures up a smile on my face and a roar in my tummy! Simple ingredients and elevated flavors will turn your cooked pork shoulder and coleslaw into a work of art. Pork shoulder is one of the most flavorful and tender cuts of meat on the planet. Of that, I am convinced. You just need to know how to prepare and cook it. For this dish, your crock pot is your best friend. Low and slow works miracles on a pork shoulder. That being said, you can cook it in the oven, but the crock pot is just so convenient. By cooking this cut of meat on low for about 8-9 hours, your pork will come out so tender and succulent that you will be convinced of divine intervention!

Pulled pork sliders are a great dish for a main meal (I can eat two or three without missing a beat), or they serve as excellent appetizers. They are just so dang cute! Add some coleslaw and you have the makings of a great sandwich. The creamy coolness of the coleslaw mixed with the spicy and tender pulled pork creates a balance of flavors that is hard to beat. I promise you that if you serve these babies at a party, you will be as big a hit as the pulled pork sliders!

By the 9th hour, the house should smell divine and the pork should be so tender it is falling apart. That is when it is done. Pull the pork out of the crock pot and set aside. It should shred into chunks automatically when you pull it apart with tongs. If you want a finer shred, just use two forks and separate it more.
