Pulled Pork Sliders

I’m gonna say it. I don’t really care for football. Yup. I said it. Whatever… it just doesn’t excited me. BUT – I do love the Super Bowl because its the perfect excuse to make some of my favorite comfort foods! They might not always be healthy, but they sure are perfect for eating while watching the big game! You can bet that my Super Bowl party will include these sliders, as well as some dips, wings and a few desserts! One thing I really really love about these sliders is that the meat is done in a slow cooker so you can prepare it ahead of time and forget about it until it is time to put your plates together. This pulled pork is smothered in a homemade BBQ sauce and it is mouthwatering and delicious.

So, while the Super Bowl is on and all the guys are huddled around the TV, I will be posted right next to all my favorite foods with my camera and an empty stomach.

This week, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and I, are sharing our favorite recipes for the Super Bowl! Be sure to check out her mini pretzel bites! So get ready for some fantastic ideas for your Super Bowl party! These recipes are sure to be a total hit no matter which team you are rooting for!!

Pulled Pork Sliders

  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika

  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2.5 lbs pork butt, cut into 2 pieces

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the pork butt and the buns in a slow cooker and mix together with a spoon. Add the 2 pieces of pork and cover the slow cooker. Set for 8 hours on low.
  2. After 8 hours, using 2 forks, shred the pork and remove the pork with the remaining sauce into a large bowl. Toast the slider buns and add some of the pulled pork to each bun.

  2. these look delicious! pulled pork is also really tasty on Hawaiian rolls… you should try it! its my fave way to make pulled pork sliders :-) perfect super bowl food!

  3. Gaelle, I used to work in a restaurant in which one of my daily lunch items was a pulled pork sandwich in a citrus sauce. Being a rather large operation, we didn’t have a slow cooker, so we used standard stainless steel pots, which worked wonderfully. My recommendation to you would be as follows:

    Follow the recipe exactly. Put all ingredients into your dutch oven, and place over medium heat to simmer for about 6-8 hours. At that point, remove from heat, and take pork out of the dutch oven. If you wish to shred it hot, do so with forks, or burning of the fingers will insue (trust me…). I prefer to pull by gloved hand when cooled, though it takes some time to cool. After pork has been pulled, return the meat to the pot, and moisten it with the sauce you’ve saved from prior braising. Just bring the meat back to a simmer, and enjoy.

    Just following this will work like a charm everytime. This is easily my favorite lunch in all creation! It is SUCH the perfect sporting event food. All you guests will love it!

  4. I don’t care about football either! Haha. At any superbowl party, I really am just there for the food! Time to bust out the slow cooker. I almost never use it, and this is a great excuse to revive it.

  10. Thanks for the recipe Gaby…we made these for Superbowl Sunday and they were a big hit! FYI I made two slight modifications and added about 1 1/2 tsp of dry mustard and a pinch of dry crushed habenero for a bit more kick.

  17. These sliders look fantastic! I have added them to the list for our game day party.
    To be honest, I must make a full confession here, I love football! I know! I’m sorry, I just do!
    I’m going to set my slow cooker out and let everyone serve themselves this year.

    But, where did you get those little buns? Did you buy them? or Bake them?

  19. These are AMAZING! I made this for Super Bowl Sunday last year and now it’s become a favorite of my family! So we make this several times a year, but of course with Super Bowl Sunday coming up guess what everyone wants again!!!! Thanks Gaby for sharing it and Ro-Tel for posting it last year!

    Oh and I noticed that someone posted something about buns…this is wide open! We use sourdough dinner rolls from our local grocery store, but the guys love it on hogie rolls. I know friends of mine that I’ve shared the recipe with have also used Kings Hawaiian rolls.

  24. hi GAby! The sliders were a big hit….very delicious…but I have a question. I am not a pro with using the slow cooker. Should the meat be totally submerged in the liquid while it is cooking? After the 8 hours , I noticed the top half of the meat was dryer than the part in the liquid… Also,my slow cooker has an internal thermometer…I am wondering if I cooked it too long. Maybe I should use that in the future. Love to know your thoughts. Love the blog!!

  28. These are amazing- just finished my 2nd sandwich- I topped them with a blue cheese dressing and maybe a bit of roquette would be good too?

  29. I’m a bit behind here but I was wondering how much the sauce thickens up. I love a good, thick BBQ sauce!! These sliders look delish- I am going to make them this weekend and again for the Super Bowl! :) THanks!

  36. So I made these for my daughter’s birthday party because I was looking for a good finger food to add and What’s Gaby Cooking very rarely let’s me down. They came out wonderfully! I did spin my pork a few times during the 8 hours. The meat was so tender and everyone raved about the flavor. I served them with King’s Hawaiian rolls and pickles and onions. Yum!
