Slow Cooker BBQ Pork, sandwiched on a hot fresh roll and served with a side of BBQ corn for an excellent meal with very little work required.
Ok, so the title of this recipe is a little misleading. You are going to get BBQ Pork Sliders, but the real recipe is for this amazing Slow Cooker BBQ Pork. It is so tender and delicious, and really easy too. I am sharing a great recipe for BBQ sauce to cook your pork in, but I would say that this method works for any BBQ sauce you love. In fact, I just made it with a Moore’s Marinade Honey BBQ the other day. For a healthy fresh compliment to this meal check out this cucumber salad.
So here is what you MUST know: Cook your pork in a slow cooker with half your BBQ sauce, and then after it is all cooked, and you shred it, dump and drain all the liquid off, then toss it in the remaining half of the BBQ sauce before you serve. This makes it delicious and flavorful, but it won’t be wet and get your buns/rolls wet, however it will be moist and tender! Mmmm.
This pork does not look very saucy, but it is full of amazing flavor, and is great for tacos, pizza toppings, salads, sandwiches, and all those other amazing things!
Anyway, now let’s get to the actual post, this is for sliders….and really this is about dinner solutions. I love an easy dinner solution. And this rates amongst the top. I slow cook the pork, and sandwich it in a hot fresh roll, and then add some veggies to accompany it.
The veggies are Bird’s Eye. And they have this new line of products that are full of flavor, things like BBQ Sweet Corn, Ranch Broccoli, and more. Tons of awesome flavor which will help your non-veggie lovers jump on board.

This dinner is one of my favorites because I can cook the corn in the microwave and the pork in the slow cooker, so I am not really making any dirty dishes to speak of. And what mom doesn’t love that? The rolls I used for the sliders were the kind that come partially cooked and then frozen, so you just cook them the rest of the way in your oven, it took 12 minutes. So with 15 minutes of my time I had dinner on the table. Awesome.
And don’t forget, this BBQ pork can be used in a number of ways, and those veggies are a great addition to any meal. You are sure to find something that your family will love. Bird’s Eye is helping turn families into veggie lovers with these bold, and somewhat unexpected flavors. I mean, I never thought to add BBQ to corn before, but it was certainly delicious.
