ingredients for pulled pork sliders

Making BBQ pork sliders is very easy. Here is what you will need:

  • Hawaiian buns: Hawaiian buns are soft, fluffy, and smell like a hint of sweetness. I love these buns because of their small size and fluffy texture.
  • Pulled pork: The main hero of this recipe is pulled pork. You can make pulled pork at home or go for store-bought pulled pork as well.
  • BBQ sauce: use your favorite, just about any flavor will do.
  • Pickles: Pickles add freshness and tanginess to the sliders. You can use either pickled onions, cucumbers or whatever vegetable you like. 

how to make pork sliders

Follow these step-by-step instructions for easy pork sliders.

step by step instructions for making pork sliders
customize with your favorite ingredients

step 1: coleslaw topping (optional)

I prefer making the coleslaw ahead of time and keeping it in the fridge for a bit before adding to my sliders.

  • Shredded cabbage and carrots
  • Mayonnaise: You can either use full-fat mayonnaise or light mayonnaise for making coleslaw.
  • Apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar adds a refreshing and tangy flavor to the coleslaw. It cuts through the sweetness of the ingredients and the creaminess of the mayonnaise.
  • Sugar: Add sugar for the sweetness coleslaw is known for.
  • Celery seeds: It adds a tangy and salty flavor, pretty much like celery itself. You can use celery salt instead of celery seeds too.

step 2: assemble the sliders

Add your pulled pork to Hawaiian rolls, top with coleslaw, pickles, BBQ sauce, or more.
