Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders Recipe

It may be fall but it’s quite warm here at the Jersey shore. We’re still enjoying temps in the mid to high 80s right now and have been for several days. I even had to turn on the air in my car! It’s all pretty unusual for October. Now while it may feel like summer for some, it isn’t. Some folks have even put away their bbq grill for the year. If you’re one of those people and find yourself wanting some bbq flavor, this recipe for Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders is just what you need. The slow cooker does all of the work for you. Now you should know that the BBQ aspect of this recipe is fairly low key. Adding it to the slow cooker infuses the meat with a great BBQ flavor, but the meat won’t be saturated in it. If you want more pronounced BBQ flavor on your sliders, you can add more sauce to the meat after it is shredded. Here’s instructions on how to make it.

Ingredients

  • 2 pound pork shoulder roast
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp black salt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup prepared BBQ sauce
  • 2 whole cloves garlic, smashed, peels removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp shallot, minced
  • slider buns, opened with inside buttered and grilled (or toasted in the oven)

Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders Recipe

Instructions

Add the pork shoulder to slow cooker and season with salt and pepper.

Add cider vinegar, BBQ sauce, garlic, onion, and shallot.

Cover and cook for 8 hours on low.

The roast should be very tender after 8 hours. Carefully remove from slow cooker and place on a serving platter or cutting board reserved for meat. Using a fork in each hand, start “pulling” in two directions, working on one small section of pork at a time. The goal is to “shred” the meat into small strands.

Place shredded meat into a serving container or add it directly to the prepared slider buns.

Top with red cabbage for some crunch and color or add any of your favorite toppings.

Serve immediately.

    I used to make pulled pork in my slow cooker all the time. That was until I starting smoking it on the grill. While both are good, you can’t beat the grill!

    Amazing! I love the purple cabbage added to the sandwich. I need to do a little more with my slow cooker. Right now, I only use it to cook my dog’s food.
