Ingredients

  • 10 slices of Hawaiian sliced bread or other thick sweet sliced bread

Pulled Pork ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless pork shoulder
  • ½ cup sliced onion
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 6- oz can tomato paste

Pineapple Slaw ingredients:

  • ½ cup pineapple cut into very small cubes
  • ¼ cup red cabbage very thinly sliced
  • ½ cup cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Instructions

  • To make the pulled pork:
  • Salt and pepper the pork on all sides.
  • In a large bowl, combine remaining pulled pork ingredients (onion through pineapple juice) to make the sauce.
  • Add pork to a slow cooker, then pour sauce over the pork and mix until pork is fully coated.
  • Cook in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours.

To make the slaw:

  • In a large bowl, combine all slaw ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate while the pulled pork cooks.

Assemble the sliders:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a round cookie or pastry cutter (about 2- ½” in diameter), cut out two circles from each slice of bread.
  • Place bread rounds on a baking sheet in one layer and bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Top each baked bread round with about one tablespoon of pulled pork, then top with about one tablespoon of pineapple slaw.
  • Serve hot or cold.

Notes

Note: you will likely have some pulled pork and pineapple slaw leftover. These can be refrigerated and kept in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Enjoy the leftovers with full slices of Franz Hawaiian bread for delicious lunch sandwiches!
