Coming down with a good case of spring fever? Can’t wait to get a taste of summer barbecue but the weather’s still a touch too cool to fire up the grill?
This recipe could be the answer. It’s a super-easy slow-cooker barbecue pulled pork, and we even created a small paleo and gluten-free bun to pile all the flavorful goodness on. After all, what’s a pulled pork slider with out its cute little bun?
We simply put a pork butt in the crock pot all seasoned up on a bed of chopped onions with a little barbecue sauce on top. You let it cook all day, drain the liquid (I strained it and added the onions and a cup of the strained liquid back into the mix) and shredded the pork. Then you just put the pork you shredded back into the crock pot with a cup or two of barbecue sauce and let it cook for another 30 minutes. That’s about it – so easy.
Our Paleo Tangy BBQ Sauce Recipe is super simple to whip up too, and you can make it ahead of time if you want.
The Paleo Buns Recipe* is also a breeze. You all know by now, I try to keep it as simple as possible. The slider mini-buns are about 3 to 3 1/2 inches a round and make 6 buns. You could always make them larger if you want and get about 4 buns out of the recipe – just be sure and add a few more minutes to the cooking time. *(Keep in mind these buns are more like biscuits and not light and fluffy wheat buns…but good enough to hold your slider.)
Let’s just say my hubby and I really enjoyed this succulent little slider. Sweet and smokey with a little kick. You can certainly turn up the heat on the BBQ sauce if you like by adding a little cayenne or chipotle. I know BBQ sauce is very subjective – everyone’s tastes are so different. But like most Paleo Newbie recipes, you can easily adjust the sauce to your liking.
So when everything was ready we piled the pork high and dug in! I added sliced avocado to mine because that’s just how I roll. A little slaw on top would be a nice touch too.
Try these pork sliders out. They are so easy to make and would be perfect for your next party too! Go ahead, show off your paleo awesomeness! It’s ok to be proud. ;)
