~ Bar-b-Que Pork Sliders ~

I just made these for a party and thought I'd share with you. I know you've seen them everywhere....this is my version!  :-)
I found a boneless pork roast on sale for a very good price...it was 3-1/2 lbs.  I used different
bar-b-que sauces this time as they were on sale. I really prefer KC Masterpiece and will go back to those next time. Everyone said this was excellent so it's just my taste preference.  It's great to use a slow cooker due to the food temp as well as not heating up the kitchen with the oven.

I placed almost a bottle of sauce in the bottom of the crockpot and placed the pork roast on top of that. I made little slits all over the top of the roast and inserted whole garlic cloves. I added 1 whole onion in generous slices.  Other seasonings used:

All Seasoning
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
Uncle Julio's Seasoning (local item)
Ground black pepper
I didn't add salt due to the sodium in the sauces
All of these are used generously...I recommend you use your favorites in the amount you desire.
We like things spicy around here!  :-)

I then poured the balance of the 1st bottle of sauce plus another full bottle over the pork, covered it and cooked 1 hour on high. I then changed the temperature to Low and cooked an additional 5-1/2 hrs.





Next step is to remove the entire roast from the slow cooker. I cut off the string netting holding it together and then shredded with 2 forks.


Lookin' good, huh?


After this is done, return it all to the slow cooker, cover with more b-b-que sauce if needed. Just make sure it's covered so it will be nice & moist.  Cook another hour on Low.  All done!  For those that know me, I'm sporadic with making photos while cooking/baking...just can't get the hang of it yet!  :-)  So.....I don't have a pic of the finished product so I'm using the pic below from another recipe.  You can add cole slaw (we had it on the side) or any other condiments to your sliders.  I buy the small rolls and don't heat them...the meat/sauce is hot enough...and again avoiding the oven in these brutal temps.


If you haven't tried these, I suggest you do. Easy and flavorful!

Wow, that pork looks amazing! And anything with Uncle Julio's has got to be good. I will be giving this a try the next time it's my turn to host my Bunco group. Plus it give's me an excuse to go Julio's for dinner and a cold margarita on the rocks, no salt please!
