These slow cooked pulled pork sliders make a great appetizer for game day or any gathering. The pork roast is mixed with BBQ sauce and various other ingredients and then cooked in the slow cooker for 5-6 hours. The pulled pork is then put onto slider buns and topped with coleslaw. The coleslaw recipe is very simple and only uses a few ingredients. If you want to save time, you can just buy a bag of shredded cabbage and carrot mix from the store. This recipe will make enough to feed a lot of people. You should be able to get at least 20 sliders out of this recipe. If you want, you can cut the recipe down a bit by getting a smaller pork roast. This is another great recipe to prepare for the Super Bowl. Enjoy.
