crock pot pulled pork slider

After a Skype call with my sister-in-law, Jessie, on Thursday night, I was left craving pulled pork sliders. While we had been chatting, she was whipping them up for her dinner with the littles. I could practically smell them through my laptop and they "smelled" so good. When making the grocery list for this coming week, it was beyond clear to me that pulled pork sliders would be on the menu! I browsed my favorite food bloggers for inspiration and as usual found a recipe from Eat, Live, Run that looked intriguing. And of course, I was not disappointed with her saucy pulled pork recipe. 2lb pork butt shoulder

1 bottle favorite BBQ sauce

1/2 bottle of BBQ with either a Chipotle flair (which she recommends) or if you want more of a sweet/tangy taste maple flair (which we decided to do)

1 onion chopped

ground mustard



cayenne pepper

Rub the pork butt shoulder with the dry mustard, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper on all sides. Brown the meat in a frying pan on all sides.  Then transfer to the crockpot. Add the onion and BBQ sauces. Cook on high for 6-8 hours.

Return the shredded meat to the crockpot of sauces.  Serve as sliders! Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 6.10.26 PM
