Slow Cooker Sundays-Pulled Pork Sliders

I haven’t had anytime at all to sit down and blog. Mercury has been in Retrograde and all communication based equipment in my life has been on the fritz. Seriously, our server went down at work and so we were without internet access for a week, people were all over the place and not communicating clearly, I was run off my feet with clients that suddenly needed service last week, then at home everything was acting funny and I just gave up. Seriously,  this is true, you don’t have to be an Astrologer to know when Mercury is in Retrograde.

Anyhow, now I am trying to get caught up. So I should post this week’s slow cooker recipe. We bought ourselves a delicious, often overlooked cut of meat, the pork shoulder and we made ourselves some Pulled Pork Sliders.

Here is what you will need:


  • pork shoulder roast, about 4 pounds
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 bottle (16 ounces) barbecue sauce, or 2 cups homemade sauce
  • 1 cup chopped onion


Place half of the thinly sliced onions in bottom of slow cooker; add pork and water, along with remaining onion slices. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or 4 to 5 hours on HIGH heat setting. Drain liquid from slow cooker; shred the meat with a fork into thin stringy pieces and discard excess fat. Put the pork back in the slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce and chopped onion. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours longer. Stir occasionally. Serve with warm split buns and coleslaw.
Serves 8 to 10.

We served ours on mini buns with a fifth of a slice of Pineapple on each. They were soo good.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
