About the Recipe
Pulled pork takes a new form in these hearty sandwiches. These pulled pork sliders are warm sandwiches filled with shredded pulled pork and coleslaw. The buns are brushed with a flavorful butter mix and baked to golden brown perfection. These easy pulled pork sliders are super quick to whip up, full of flavor, and absolutely drool-worthy.
1/2 cup mayo
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 (9 oz.) package cole slaw mix
12 pack slider buns (Kings Hawaiian are great for this recipe)
3 cups pulled pork, (or use store bought)
Coleslaw, (recipe above)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce, (use more or less depending on how saucy you want the sliders)
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon onion salt or garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
FOR COLESLAW: In a large mixing bowl, stir together mayo, mustard, apple cider vinegar, onion powder and sea salt.
Toss in the coleslaw mix. Stir everything together until the slaw is completely coated in the dressing.
Put in fridge andd let sit a couple of hours before serving.,
FOR SLIDERS: Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice the slider buns in half and remove the top of the buns and set aside.
Place the bottom half of the buns in a 9×13 dish. Layer the pulled pork over the the buns, top with BBQ sauce and replace the top of the buns.
Alternately, you can mix BBQ sauce directly into the pulled pork, then layer on the bun and add just a small spoonful of BBQ Sauce.
FOR BUTTER: In a small microwave safe bowl, add butter, Worcestershire sauce, onion salt and poppy seeds.
Microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until completely melted.
Slowly pour the butter mixture over the top of the buns.
Alternatively, use a spoon to spoon out melted butter to ensure poppy seeds cover the bun tops.
Cover the dish with foil and bake at 375° for 10 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
If using slaw, once sliders have cooled a few minutes, remove the bun tops, add a spoonful of slaw and replace tops. Enjoy!
