Ingredients for Pulled Pork Sliders

  • Pork – Look for pork shoulder or pork butt with lots of marbling for the best flavor. Bone-in cuts are also great choices. Ready-made pulled pork is perfect if time is short!
  • Sauce – Use any dark cola (root beer or Coke) and your favorite BBQ sauce – any variety works.
  • Rolls – Soft Hawaiian rolls are slightly sweet, so they’re perfect for these BBQ pork sliders. You can also use brioche, dinner rolls, or slider buns.
  • Coleslaw – Homemade coleslaw is easy to make with a bag of slaw mix. You can substitute


  • Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to the sauce before adding to the crock pot.
  • Switch out the optional cheddar cheese for slices of Swiss or provolone.
  • Add sliced dill pickles to the sandwiches.

How to Make Pulled Pork Sliders

Let the slow cooker do all the work, just prep, set, and forget!

  1. Season the pork (recipe below) and place in a slow cooker with cola. Cook until fork tender.
  2. Shred the pork with two forks and mix in BBQ sauce and some of the cooking juices.
  3. Toast the rolls and add pulled pork and coleslaw.

    Tips for Juicy Pulled Pork

    • Use a well-marbled pork shoulder (skip the pork tenderloin; it’s too lean for this recipe).
    • For the best, juiciest pulled pork, avoid opening the lid during cooking.
    • Remove the pork from the juices before shredding. Some cuts of pork can produce more liquid than you need.

    For the Pork

    • 1 pound pulled pork


    • 3 to 4 pounds pork shoulder/pork butt
    • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 cup cola or root beer
    • ½ cup barbecue sauce

    For the Coleslaw

    • 7 ounces coleslaw mix about 3 cups
    • ¼ cup mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon celery seeds
    • teaspoon salt

    For the Sliders

    • 12 Hawaiian rolls or slider rolls, more if desired
    • 3 tablespoons garlic butter
    • ¼ cup barbecue sauce more to taste
    • 4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded, optional


    To Make the Pork

    • For pre-made pulled pork, heat according to package directions.
    • For homemade pulled pork, rub the pork with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.
    • Add the cola to the bottom of a 4qt slow cooker and place the pork in the slow cooker.
    • Cook on high 4-5 hours or on low 7-8 hours or until fork tender.
    • Transfer the pork to a large bowl and transfer the juices to a separate bowl.
    • Shred the pork using two forks and discard any large pieces of fat. Add the pork back to the slow cooker and add ½ cup barbecue sauce. Slowly drizzle the reserved juices from the slow cooker into the pork as needed for moisture. Mix well.
    • Cover and cook on high for an additional 30-60 minutes (optional).

    To Prepare the Coleslaw

    • Combine mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seeds, sugar and salt in a medium bowl.
    • Add coleslaw mix and toss well to combine. Refrigerate until serving.

    To Assemble the Sliders

    • Using a serrated knife, cut the rolls in half (horizontally) without separating the rolls.
    • Spread the garlic butter onto the bottom of the rolls and if using cheese, add the cheese to the top of the rolls. Broil until lightly browned.
    • Divide the slaw over the bottom of the rolls, top with pulled pork, and drizzle with additional BBQ sauce if desired. Add the top of the rolls and serve.


    While this recipe makes 12 sliders, you will likely have enough pork to make up to 24 sliders. Leftover pulled pork can be refrigerated for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 4 months.
    Leftover pulled pork should be stored separately from the buns and coleslaw.
    Leftovers are great on mac and cheese, as sliders, or on nachos.
