Today I have for you a quick meal that will feed a crowd. It takes no work to make and only requires a few ingredients. It is my BBQ Pork Sliders. These sliders are so juicy and tender and great for a party or simply to serve to your family.
I got the inspiration for this recipe from King’s Hawaiian. They have a new line of BBQ Sauce and they asked me to try them out. I only tried King Hawaiian Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce, but am looking forward to trying the other flavors, especially the Smoked Bacon. Yum! Since I was on a King’s Hawaiian kick I thought I would venture out and try for the first time ever King’s Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls. Can you believe I have never tried the rolls? Oh, they are so soft and tender and perfect with my BBQ Pork Sliders.
To make the BBQ Pork, all I did was add a Pork Loin Filet to a Crockpot, add BBQ Sauce and a few chunks of pineapple. I cooked it all day, such work. Ha ha Once it was done I shredded it with two forks. Add it to my rolls and I had an amazing, soft, tender, juicy, sweet sandwich. The Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Sauce has a nice sweet, smoky flavor. I really enjoyed it.
We served these sandwiches while watching the Warriors play basketball. They were doing amazing during the season, but seem to be slowing down a bit. I can’t get over how many games they play during a week. I would be so tired.
Since it is only the two of us, these sandwiches taste great the next day too. I just warmed the pork in the microwave, added a little more BBQ sauce and topped it onto my roll. I find these sliders very filling. I ate two for dinner, but struggled eating the second. Maybe next time I won’t make french fries to go with it?

Top pork with pineapple chunks and take about 2 tablespoons of the pineapple juice and pour around the pork. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
- When done; with two forks, shred the pork. Slice the mini rolls in half. Top a little bit of pork onto the roll and top with additional BBQ sauce if desired. Serve immediately.
- To have later or for lunch, re-heat pork in the microwave with a little bit of BBQ sauce, about 1 minute. Then make your sandwich. 🙂
Simple meals are so wonderful, especially when they are so tasty. I just love my Crockpot. No matter what day of the week it is, I tend to tire out by dinner time, but having an already meal waiting for you is priceless.
Have a great weekend!
