Last week, in a fit of…..something….I posted some pictures of some of my favorite recent food on our Facebook page.

A fit of liking food? I don’t know.

One of the pictures that got a little bit of attention was the picture of these sweet-ass sliders that I’ve made for showers, a wedding, you name it!

They’re great, and perfect every time.

The thing is, though, that you could do SO MUCH with the pulled pork – I’d definitely make a lot of it and use it for a few weeks!  It freezes REALLY well, too, so that’s even more of a reason to cook a buttload of it!

In class last week I told some friends how I should have brought them some pork because class is at 6pm and we were all starving and my friend Cole said “do you have ANY idea how much I love pulled pork?  What is WRONG with you?”  Um, no, Cole, I don’t know much about your eating preferences.  My b.

Anyway.  What I mean is, people like pulled pork, and you should make this for them.

Here are some other things you could do with this:

  • Make your own barbecue sauce, or use your favorite jarred variety for a barbecue night!
  • Add 1 tablespoon of cumin to the rest of the seasonings before you cook the pork and serve it shredded with cabbage in tacos.
  • Shred it into large pieces and serve it over salad with tortilla chips and your own salsa.
  • Serve a heap of it in a baked potato with cilantro, sour cream, and broccoli on the side.

OH, and here’s another thing.  You could make the pork in a slow cooker if you’d like to come home to barbecue!  It’ll be great after 8 hours on low – just skim off the fat, shred, and go to town.

Of course, the sliders are always perfect for a party, or a weeknight when you feel like  being fun and having small food, which is cuter than regular sized food, isn’t it?

This keeps wonderfully, like I said, so the next time you have 3 hours to watch TV while pork roasts, make a big batch of this, freeze and fridge it in small portions, and relish in how lovely make-ahead meats are.

Now, what else could we do with this?  I’ve got about 10 lbs in my freezer.
