Pulled Pork Sliders

We can agree that pulled pork sandwiches are delicious, but these pulled pork sliders take it to a whole new level. These flavorful, bite-sized burgers not only include pulled pork and coleslaw but a lightly seasoned mini beef (or pork) patty stuffed with bacony goodness. These small but decadent sliders are worth the effort, AND a great way to use leftover pulled pork!

What type of bread should I use?

These pulled pork sliders don’t require a specific slider bun. I recommend using either Hawaiian rolls (or slider buns), brioche buns, pretzel buns, and even sesame topped slider buns. The Hawaiian rolls are my favorite since they have a subtle sweetness that pops once toasted and coated in BBQ sauce. Brioche is another excellent choice, but they might be harder to find.

What you’ll need to make Pulled Pork Sliders:

  • Ground pork or beef
  • 3-4 slices bacon
  • Garlic
  • Pulled pork
  • Prepared coleslaw 
  • Mustard barbecue sauce
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 6-8 slider buns or dinner rolls
  • Olive oil

While you can purchase ready-made BBQ sauce and coleslaw, you can also make your own! Try our Georgia Mustard BBQ Sauce and Slaw for Sandwiches for this recipe. If you are not a fan of mustard, try a tomato-based sauce on these pulled pork sliders.

How to Make Pulled Pork Sliders:

  • Prepare coleslaw, cover it, and place it into the refrigerator.
  • Reheat the pulled pork on the stovetop with a little apple juice or liquid of choice. Cover and keep warm.
  • Preheat your grill for 375 degrees F or medium-high heat. Place a flat top griddle or large cast-iron pan on the grill as the grill heats up. This is for toasting the buns.
  • In a large bowl, combine ground meat with onion powder, chopped bacon. 
  • Form into 6-8 small patties. Slightly larger than the slider bun. Season each parry with salt and black pepper.
  • Place patties on the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Brush the insides of buns with a little olive oil. Toast the buns on a flat griddle or cast iron pan during the last half of cooking time.
  • Once cooked, remove patties and buns from the grill. To build your pulled pork sliders, place patties onto the slider buns, and top with coleslaw, warmed pulled pork, and mustard sauce. Serve immediately.
