Three Ingredient Pulled Pork Sliders

Three Ingredient Pulled Pork Sliders

My husband and I having a running joke in our house about liquid smoke. Have you ever cooked with it? I have been using it for years and love to put it in the Crock Pot and baked beans. He laughs and wonders why I just can’t leave things as they are, but personally I think liquid smoke takes the flavors to the next level. Especially in these Three Ingredient Pulled Pork Sliders. They are easy, party-feeding, crowd pleasers, and – best of all – you make them in the Crock Pot. This recipe is one that I have been making for years. A good friend of mine got it from her sister-in-law who got it from I don’t know who. That kind of recipe. And I have made it for parties, for families after the birth of a baby, and meals for friends that just need a pick me up. And what’s even better? You can make a huge batch and freeze what is left over. Pretty much a no brainer trifecta for me.

Now as with all recipes where the ingredient list is short, it is important to use high quality ingredients; you will definitely taste a difference. Now isn’t the time to skimp with the barbecue sauce that is on sale. Use your favorite, and if you don’t have a favorite, use mine. I love Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite BBQ Sauce. It is hands down my favorite barbecue sauce. The smokey mesquite flavors ring through, especially with the addition of the hickory liquid smoke. 

No more worries about what to make for your Super Bowl party this year or even for dinner one night this week. Or both. Trust me; this easy, flavorful dinner will make it into your regular rotation as quickly as it did mine.
