Kalua Pork Sliders with Pineapple-Mango Slaw

SOOOOOO GOOOD!!!!  This was so easy to make - and was so delicious!!  I don't really know what else to say except SOOOOO GOOD!!!

OBB Cookbook


2 cups shredded purple cabbage (cut shreds into about 1″ pieces)
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 rib celery
1/3 cup sliced green onions
3 heaping tablespoons chopped cilantro
1/2 cup diced mango
1/2 cup diced pineapple

3 tablespoons mayo
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon sugar
1 heaping teaspoon orange zest
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1-2 dozen Hawaiian Rolls
1 Kalua Pork Roast about 3 lbs
optional: bbq sauce

Note:  Since you’re putting the slaw on a small bun, make sure to dice everything relatively small so you get a little of everything in each slider!

Combine all slaw ingredients and gently toss.  Whisk dressing ingredients together.  Add dressing to slaw and toss gently until everything is lightly coated.  Chill for 15 minutes.  Slice Hawaiian rolls in half, top with shredded Kalua Pork and a generous spoonful of slaw.  Top with other half of bun.  (If desired, you can squirt just a wee bit of bbq sauce over the pork.  I don’t like to use a lot because it takes away from the simple smoky flavor of the pork, but if you have a sauce you really love, it’s pretty good in there.)

Yield depends on how full you make them. I would estimate 1 1/2 dozen very generously filled sliders and 2 dozen moderately filled ones.
