Football snack: mini bbq pork crockpot sliders from

When you’re young, you can’t wait for birthdays, Christmas, Halloween, etc. I’ve realized that as you grow up, those holidays become less exciting. Well, they’re still exciting as far as the anticipation of them go but I just feel like it’s just another day sometimes. Don’t get me wrong – I love holidays and I love being with my family, but the excitement I had when I was young is way different than it is now! I guess that’s what it’s like to grow up and you get into more “grown up” things. Getting a new vacuum excites me or getting new furniture makes me giddy. All comes with age, I guess. I know it sounds random that I’m talking about this but it’s because just a couple days ago, I forgot that today was my 26th birthday. I was sent a gift card via email from my SIL & BIL and I was like “what’s this for?” I honestly thought it was a “congratulations on Anderson Cooper” card. Jason then reminded me, “uh, it’s for your birthday.” See what I mean by moments like that that get less exciting? Or maybe it’s just me. I’m sure once we have kids or something, it’ll be different.

Anyway, being an adult isn’t so bad. You get to throw parties and have all your friends over. Just like when you were young but you can do adult things now like…drink and curse.

Along with your adult things, you definitely can’t have a game day party without sliders! I’ve got you covered. These take no time to whip together. In fact, it’s THREE INGREDIENTS that you probably already have on hand. Actually, I KNOW for a fact you have soda or beer on hand (you’re throwing a game day party after all, right?) so now that leaves you with the two other ingredients that I’m positive any well-stocked pantry & fridge has! After you’ve gathered your massive ingredient list, you literally set and forget. It’s so easy that you can tell your husband to make it for his friends that he’s inviting over! Hahaha

I actually made these way back in the day on the blog but the picture needed a major revamp and I felt that I needed to showcase the easy pulled pork again. Instead of making them into sandwiches, I made them into sliders. For one, they’re easier to eat, and two, they’re just so cute :) I love sliders. They make you feel less guilty eating five of them cause they’re so mini ;)

Hi Julie and making this recipe for my Super Bowl party. The pork shoulder is 7.25lbs. Should I start cooking it when I go to bed for tomorrow? Thank you and all ears.

hi Mike, sorry - I don't monitor comments around the clock. i hope you were able to figure this out. i would think if you woke up around 8am and put the pork in the slow cooker, it would be done by super bowl. that would be about 10 hours.

Hello! I was just wondering, how much is a serving about? I have recently been labeled a diabetic and I'd really like to try this recipe, so I would need to know about how much filling goes into each sandwich.

I plan on making this for a tailgater. Can I make the day before, refrigerate, bring to tailgater and reheat and maybe just add a little more sauce? Thank you!

Hi there. My roast is approximately 3 1/2 pounds. How long should I cook it for on high and on low please? As well should I use more than one can of coke for this size of a roast?? Thank you!


Saturday 30th of December 2017

I would cook it on low for 7 hours and high for 5 hours. You could probably get away with just 1 can of coke.
