Pulled Pork Sliders With Slow Cooked Pork Shoulder

bun with pork, coleslaw, cheese and butter

Sunday morning I was lying in bed thinking about the pork shoulder in the fridge. I made my way to the kitchen, quickly cut up the pork and placed it in the slow cooker, then I went back to bed.

It’s incredible how it was cooking away so quietly, with only a few releases of pressure over the hours.

I was excited to open the slow cooker after six hours, not knowing how the flavour would taste, or how tender the meat would be, but when I opened it the intense smell was wonderful and filled the kitchen!

I took out the pork, pulled it into pieces with a fork, and had it for dinner with my husband. It was very juicy and tender. We made pork sliders on small buns with fresh coleslaw, tasty cheese and some barbeque sauce for extra flavour.

I was very happy with how it turned out. It was super easy to make, and I made most of it with my eyes closed zzzzz 😉
