Sweet and Spicy BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders

A few weeks ago we had a family party at our home.
I always seem to have a ton of parties during the summer.
Rather than the usual hamburger and hot dogs, 
which we had anyway...
I decided to switch thing up a bit and make a slider bar.
A pulled pork slider bar.
Remember that Killer Coleslaw from the other day?
I made it just for these sliders. 

After just about 8 hours and the pork is done it will look like this (above).
I know eight hours seems like forever but trust me it's worth it!
Your house is going to smell amazing.

The sweet and spicy sauce of this dish not only makes the pork taste amazing it 
goes so good with this killer coleslaw.  You have sweet and spicy bbq pork topped with crisp crunchy coleslaw on some stellar buns. 
Make sure you have great buns....the bread kind!


For The Dry Rub
1 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon adobo powder
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne
2-3 pound shoulder pork roast

For The Sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1/2 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 chili's in adobo
1 large vidalia onion roughly chopped
2 loves of garlic smashed and peeled
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/2 cup cola

24 slider buns

Time to make the rub...

Mix the dry rub ingredients in small bowl. Rub the rub all over the roast! Pressing into the meat. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.

After the meat has marinated combine the sauce ingredients in a dutch oven. Remove wrap from pork and place in the dutch oven. Cook for 6-8 hours or until fork tender and shreds easily.

When the pork is done remove from the pot and shred the pork with a fork or tongs into bite size pieces. I placed it back into the sauce to keep the meat moist and warm until ready to serve.

For The Assembly
Slice up all you buns in half. Make sure its really good bread.

Next pile on some meat, with a small amount of the sauce. Next pile on the coleslaw. close them up and add a toothpick to hold together.

if you have any left over it the next day, make nachos, empanadas or simply freeze.


  1. Wow my husband will love this recipe. Thanks for sharing ;-)

  2. Hi Rina! Recipe looks yummy! Is there a substitute for the cola? I don't touch the stuff :( Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi! Thank you.You can either omit it completely or sub with 1/4 cup chicken or beef stock.

  3. Great burgers. I hope you'll bring them on over to Food on friday: Chillies over at Carole's Chatter. Cheers

  4. Did I miss something because I thought a crock pot was involved?

    1. You could easily cook them in the crock pot if you wish to. Low 6-8 hours or high for 4-5.

    2. How did this change to the stove?

    3. Kevin I am not sure what you mean?

  5. Hi Rina, just saw this delicious recipe for "Sweet & Spicy BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders" I have been looking for a good pulled pork recipe, and I think I have finally found it :). I do have a question, I was wandering if you could do this in a crock pot (slow cooker)? And if so what temperature (low or high) and for how long? Thanks again for a wonderful looking recipe and keep them coming. :)

  7. Thanks for the quick response Rina. But for Anonymous, I did not see anything about a crock pot, I saw where Rina put it into a Dutch Oven then in the oven @250 for 8hrs.. But thanks for the response. I am going to make this this weekend, can't wait to try it.
