Pulled Pork Shoulder Sliders 


(Serves 15)

  • 1 bone-in pork shoulder (10 lbs)
  • 8 cloves of garlic made into a paste with a little salt (chop finely to make the paste)
  • Adobo (or a mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, black pepper, salt and oregano)
  • juice of 3 lemons and 1 orange
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • olive oil
  • oregano
  • 15 King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls (dinner roll size)
  • barbecue sauce (enough to lightly coat pork)


  • NIGHT BEFORE: Place the pork shoulder in a baking dish skin side up and rub it with olive oil and generously sprinkle it with plenty of Adobo.
  • Make 1” slits (about 1” deep) all over the pork and slide the garlic paste into all of the slits.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the orange and lemon juice with the onion and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste and some oregano.
  • Pour over pork and marinate overnight.


  • Heat the oven to 475°.  Pour enough liquid (water or chicken stock) to come up 1” and bake uncovered for one hour.
  • Turn oven down to 275° and tent pork with some tin foil and bake for 1 ½ hours per lb.
  • Remove foil for the last hour of cooking.
  • Allow pork to cool and then shred with a fork. Transfer pork to a large bowl and toss with barbecue sauce until coated.
  • Toast buns and fill with ¼ cup of pork.
