Pulled Pork Sliders And Sweet Corn Slaw

We've been spending a lot of time by the BBQ lately as springtime allows it. This recipe is not one that needs to be fussed over. You can adjust the time and temp to suit your schedule and then set it and forget it. It is prepared one-pot style in a Dutch oven and can take as little as 1.5 hours or as long as 4. The pork is sweet and juicy and the corn slaw cuts right through the richness and refreshes each bite with a nice snap.


  • for Pulled Pork:
  • 2 Lbs pork butt, cut into large chunks
  • 3 cup apple cider
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • for Sweet Corn Slaw:
  • 4 ears of fresh corn, sliced off cob
  • 10 baby bell peppers, sliced
  • ¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sugar


  1. Preheat grill to 500°F.
  2. Place dutch oven on grill and sear the chunks of pork in oil on at least two sides until browned.
  3. Add the vegetables, spices, and apple cider that you’ve put aside for the pulled pork. Ensure that there is enough apple cider to come half way over the largest piece of meat.
  4. Cover the dutch oven and let it cook at 250°F for 3 hours, adding liquid if the meat dries out.
  5. Turn off heat and let the dutch oven sit inside closed grill for one hour.
  6. Prepare the slaw topping by combining the slaw ingredients: sliced corn, chopped bell peppers, chopped parsley, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, black pepper, and sugar.
  7. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and use to top your pulled pork sliders or serve alongside.
