Slider Buns:

Prepare Pulled Pork:

  • In a small bowl, mix smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to create a rub.

  • Rub the pork shoulder with the spice mixture, ensuring it's well-coated.

  • Place the pork in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or until the pork is tender and easily shreds.

  • Shred the pork using two forks and mix in the barbecue sauce.

Make Coleslaw:

  • In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage and grated carrots.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper.

  • Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss until well coated. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Assemble Sliders and Freeze:

  • Place a spoonful of BBQ pulled pork on the bottom half of each slider bun.

  • Top with a generous portion of coleslaw.

  • Place the top half of the bun on top.

  • Repeat until all sliders are assembled.

  • Allow the sliders to cool before wrapping them individually with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. Label with reheating instructions.

  • Freeze the sliders.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
