Pulled Pork Sliders with Carolina Sauce

Don't ya love the easy stuff?   Get your slow cooker out for this one.

What you need:
Pork shoulder - I use bone out - the bone in is just too big for the slow cooker
Pork Rub
One large onion, cut into wedges
1 cup Apple Juice
Dinner Rolls

Wash and dry the pork shoulder.  Rub it generously with the pork rub seasoning

Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray.  Add the pork shoulder, the onion and the apple juice.

Cook on low heat for 7-8 hours.

Using tongs remove it from the slow cooker.

It will fall apart, I promise you.

Shred with tongs or forks.

Make the sauce:

This sauce came from a bag of Frito-Lay Carolina Style BBQ chips.  Here's what I do:

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup spicy brown mustard
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup onion - pulverized in the food processor
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

Heat on low heat under well combined.  Enjoy!

Ladle on sliders.  Not too much though. A little goes along way.  Add onions and pickles or you can put cole slaw on them.  No matter how you dress them up.  They are delicious.

  1. Will have to make this. In the UK we don't really get this on the menu so when I was in Florida a few weeks back I had to have some. Thanks for posting this as a reminder for me ;-)
