Slow-Cooker Cyclops Sliders

These are basically just sloppy joes but with pork, all dressed up in their scary Halloween outfits! Sloppy Joes are my kiddos favorite food, maybe second only to chili. So, I knew that these would be intriguing to them!  Everyone in my family also loves pulled pork, so this one is a winner all around. And I love how you can turn the slow cooker on and forget about it! You will need…

● One 2-3 lb pork tenderloin roast
● 1 cup diced onion
● 1 TBS paprika
● 1 tsp salt
● 1 tsp garlic powder
● 1 tsp cumin
● 1 pinch cayenne
● 1/2 tsp pepper

For the sauce:
● 1/2 cup ketchup
● 1 TBS molasses
● 3 TBS brown sugar
● 2 TBS Worcestershire

For garnish:

  • Hawaiian slider rolls
  • Green olives
  • Sliced white cheese
  • Oval pickles
  • Toothpicks

Season the tenderloin with the paprika, salt, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne, and pepper. Chop the onion and add it all to a slow cooker.

Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour it over the onion and tenderloin. Cook on high for four hours or until the meat is able to be shredded with a fork.

When the meat is tender, remove it to a plate or cutting board and shred. Turn the dial to “warm” and set aside until ready to serve.

When you’re ready to serve, lay a piece of cheese down on the bottom bun of the slider roll. This prevents the bottom from getting soggy! Put down a pickle so that the “tongue” protrudes a bit! So rude, haha! Layer on some meat mixture and then cut two rectangles of cheese, cutting one end to look like a point. (If you cut the cheese longer, they stay on much better! The top bun hides the rest). Next put the top bun on, and top with an olive and a toothpick to hold it all together! Click below for a handy printable! Bone-appetit!
