Coca-Cola Pulled Pork Sliders

3 February 2013. Super Bowl. Food. Full Bellies. Extra exercise come Monday. Despite if your team won or lost tonight it is really about the food (well, to me). I tolerate football and mainly go for the food and the company. Today, the Husband and I went to his Mom’s for some football, food and family time. I made coca-cola pulled pork overnight and brought all the goodies to assemble sliders at her house. Perfect game food!

Pulled pork is a classic. You can find it on many restaurant menus and it is fairly reasonable to make for a party. With a few simple ingredients, and of course, my handy dandy crock pot this was a no brainer.

I have blogged a couple of times with dishes that were created using my crock pot and I have started to notice it is not the most beautiful thing to photograph. Regardless, what is lacking in photo beauty is made up for in flavor.

What you will need (enough for 24 sliders & leftovers)

3-4 lbs of pork butt, fat trimmed

1 20 oz bottle of coca-cola

1 T garlic powder

1 T yellow mustard

1 T apple cider

1 T Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp liquid smoke

1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper

1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

I like Kinder’s especially because it was buy one, get one free at Safeway!

What you will do:

1. Wash, pat dry and trim excess fat from pork butt and put in crock pot.

2. Add all seasonings and coca-cola and turn crock pot on low. Cook for 8-10 hours.

3. After 10 hours of cooking, remove pork onto plate and shred pork using tongs or two forks. Remove the oil from the rendered liquid, strain and set aside (you can use a little of this to keep the pulled pork moist if you are not serving right away).

4. Add shredded pork back to crock pot and add BBQ sauce, stir to incorporate. Keep on low until BBQ sauce has come up to temp. then turn to ‘warm’ setting. Serve with Bobby’s Cole Slaw on miniature buns.

5. Assemble your sliders. Bottom bun, pulled pork, cole slaw, and top bun. YUM!

Sliders are a great way to have one as a snack or three or four as a meal. Take your pick. They were a big hit at the party and so colorful and they make pretty photos.

I assembled the sliders on a tray for simple handling.

Such an easy dish to make, a few simple ingredients and a crock pot. I love my crock pot and you will see many more recipes where I use this great invention. Perfect for parties, so tasty, and easy on the pocket-book!

Cheers and happy eating!
