South Carolina Sliders

Hands-on time 10 mins
Total time 9 hrs, 10 mins
Yield Makes 4 to 6 servings
South Carolina Sliders get their name from the popular mustard barbecue sauce, found in parts of South Carolina, that's mixed with the slow-cooked pork roast.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (4- to 5-lb.) bone-in pork shoulder roast (Boston butt)
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (15-oz.) package slider miniature sandwich buns
  • Lowcountry Slaw

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients. Rub brown sugar mixture over roast; place roast in a lightly greased 6-qt. slow cooker.

  2. Whisk together mustard and next 3 ingredients. Pour mustard mixture over top of roast. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours (or on HIGH 4 to 6 hours) or until meat shreds easily with a fork. Let stand 15 minutes. Shred pork with a fork; stir until sauce is incorporated.

  3. Bake slider buns according to package directions. Split buns. Spoon 1/4 cup barbecued pork and 1/4 cup Lowcountry Slaw onto each bun bottom. Cover with tops of buns, and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

To make ahead, prepare recipe as directed, and let pork cool completely (about 1 hour), stirring occasionally. Freeze in an airtight container up to 3 months.
