Sliders. Possibly the best ever party or big-game food to serve. I love the versatility of them and all of the different flavor possibilities that you have. I’ve even made pizza sandwiches like them before. They can be served hot, as toasted sandwiches, or cold with cold deli meat.

This is an easy and delicious meal that I prepared in less than 20 minutes total. This is a perfect weeknight meal for the family, or a great snack for the big game or casual family get together. I really like the easy and simplicity of this recipe, especially just using some left over pulled pork for this recipe. It only needs to be warmed, assembled, and served.

Let’s Prep:

Let’s start the sliders!

I started by slicing the pack of Hawaiian Sliders rolls in half horizontally. I prefer making them like this as it’s quicker and easier than breaking them all apart and trying to toast the buns and assemble them individually. Trust me, if you’ve never cut sliders buns like this, it’s a huge time saver for you. A little more care spent in the beginning will save you a ton of time on the back end.

For a ton of extra flavor, I also generously slathered the inside of the sliders rolls with a seasoned butter. This is optional, but highly recommended and easy to do. Melt 1 stick of unsalted butter in a bowl and combine with 1 TBSP of Queen Bee Honey BBQ Seasoning. This adds a TON of flavor to the sliders.

Let’s Cook:

This section might be better stated as “Let’s Prepare:” because this is a really simple cook where I’ve taken the meat out of the fridge that already came prepared and seasoned to perfection and popped it in my cast iron skillet for a couple minutes with the provided au jus to go along with it. I cooked it until it was crispy to my liking and then removed from heat. This takes less than 5 minutes. Amazing!

Next step to preparing this recipe is to assemble the sandwiches. The benefits of slicing the sliders buns as described in the beginning are really going to start paying off now. After you’ve baked your sliders buns for a few minutes to make them nice and crispy, lay down your pork and cover with a generous layer of coleslaw my recipe is my favorite – check it out!

For the BBQ Sauce, this is also my recipe, when I create the blog post for it, I’ll link it here. It’s a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce that uses Dr. Pepper as it’s base and that flavor really comes through in a big way. Leaving the familiar taste of Dr. Pepper with you as well as adding notes of cherry, and black pepper to the overall flavor profile. It’s fantastic!

As we assemble the sliders from the bottom up: sliders buns, BBQ butter, pork, coleslaw, BBQ Sauce, then top sliders buns. At this point, you’re ready to serve and eat.

Let’s Eat:

Now that you’ve gotten your meal all put together, simply slice the sandwiches to individual size and serve. These are fantastic to serve at the big game or for any get-together.
