These are fantastic for dinner parties as you can prep the pork beforehand and then quickly do last-minute sandwich prep, or prepare an entire southwest-themed party bar and have guests customize their own slider.
Slow-Cooked Southwest Shredded Pork Sliders
- 1 lb pork shoulder
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, diced
- 2 tablespoons, chili powder
- 1 teaspoon, red pepper flakes
- 1 cup southwest-style salsa
- 1 can pinto beans
- 4 slices of cheddar cheese
- 2 large kaiser rolls (cheddar rolls, if you want even more cheesiness)
In a crockpot, place pork shoulder, onion, garlic, chili powder, red pepper flakes and salsa, and cook on high for at least 4 hours. When the meat is done cooking, shred with two forks. Keeps in the fridge for at least a week.
When you're ready to serve, heat up the pinto beans in a frying pan, add two large scoops of your shredded pork and heat all the way through.
Toast your buns, top with meat mixture, salsa and cheese. Voila!
