Forget the typical hamburgers at your Superbowl party and consider these pulled pork sliders with King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. These slow-cooked sliders are incredibly easy to make and the perfect snack for your friends and family.
Pulled Pork Shoulder Sliders
- 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
- 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.
COOKING THE PORK SHOULDER:
- 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.
