Pulled Pork Sliders from www.whatsgabycooking.com are the perfect summer treat!! (@whatsgabycookin)

These pulled pork sliders have been on rotation in our house for years. I love that I can throw everything into the slow cooker in the morning, toast some slider buns in the afternoon and then throw it all together when it’s time to eat. It takes absolutely zero concentration which is exactly what I need these coming months because life is about to get a little hectic.

So, if you’re looking for something delicious, easy, simple, and awesome… look no further. Pulled Pork Sliders are your new jam. Throw some pickles or picked onions on top to give it an extra crunch and you’re on your way!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  6. I’ve been searching for pulled pork recipes! That’s what I’ve decided I want to make for the Superbowl. I’m bookmarking this now.Your sliders are adorable!

  7. Definitely going to attempt these for Sunday. have you ever made the pork ahead of time and reheated it??

  8. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  15. hi gaby!
    I just put my pork butt in the slow cooker! very excited to see how this turns out…looks like a great recipe!!!

  16. 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!!

  17. The best… Made this last weekend for the family. Tossed my “old” pulled pork recipe away.
    Love your site.

  18. 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?

  19. 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!
