Balsamic Vinegar and Honey Pulled-Pork Sliders
Ingredients
  • 1 2 1/2 - 3  pound  boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 1  cup  chopped onion (1 large)
  • 3/4  cup  chopped green sweet pepper (1 medium)
  • 1  teaspoon  dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2  cup  chicken broth
  • 1  cup  balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4  cup  ketchup
  • 1/3  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  cup  honey
  • 1  tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  tablespoon  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1  clove  garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 20  sliders buns or small round dinner rolls, split and toasted
  •  Purchased deli coleslaw
  •  Sweet or dill pickles, coarsely chopped
Directions

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. In the cooker combine onion and sweet pepper. Add meat; sprinkle with thyme and rosemary. Pour broth over meat.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 9 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

3. Meanwhile, for barbecue sauce, in a medium saucepan combine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, honey, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, black pepper, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.

4. Transfer meat to a cutting board. Use two forks to pull meat apart into shreds, discarding any fat. Strain vegetable mixture, discarding liquid. Return shredded meat and vegetables to cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce. Cover and cook for 1 hour on low-heat setting.

5. To serve, spoon meat mixture onto bun bottoms. Top with coleslaw and pickles. Cover with bun tops.
