Pulled Pork Sliders with Pickled Red Cabbage
I’m a Kansas City girl and BBQ has always been a part of my life. I was lucky enough to have a mom who loves grilling and she made some of the BEST BBQ ribs… Tender, falling off the bone and covered in a sweet, sticky KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce.
Occasionally we’d have pulled pork or chicken as well but I remember the two things that made the bbq great were her cooking the meat to buttery perfection, and that sweet, molasses bbq sauce.
Now, working with chefs who are experts in the field of BBQ I’ve tasted some pretty fantastic BBQ sauces and if you want to try your hand at one, go for it! But if you have a favorite bottled brand, it can really make BBQ a breeze which is sometimes what you need!
I was sooo happy with how this pulled pork came out. I rubbed it heavily in seasoning and seared it on all sides before letting it cook at 275 Fahrenheit for 3 ½ hours… Man, it was falling apart and the juices had mixed in the bbq sauce and lordy! Top that with some cabbage soaked in vinegar and you’ve just died and gone to heaven…
P.S shoutout to pickled cabbage for being my vinegary dream-come-true when coleslaw is too sweet and sauerkraut is too fermenty. Pickled cabbage is the perfect combo for that sweet, KC BBQ sauce.
