BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders with KFC Copy Cat Coleslaw

This recipe works great with chicken as well. The pulled pork only requires 3 ingredients, and you can practically make it with your eyes closed! I made the coleslaw a day ahead so the flavours had time to come together. Brought it to a pot luck pool get-together with some lovely families in our estate, and it was really well received!

The coleslaw is a winner, it does taste very similar to the KFC version. This is my go-to recipe every time I make coleslaw, this time I only made half the recipe as it was used as a slider topping instead of a side dish. I also chose to shred my cabbage and carrot instead of chop them up into smaller pieces because I prefer this texture, and I was lazy. LOL! Use a food processor to help speed things up! 🙂

    Hi Sharon,

    There is only 3 ingredients to make these pulled pork… Sound very easy. With root beer, it sounds so yummy. I love to try the chicken version 😀

      Hi, you can always cook it on your stove top, let it simmer on a low heat for about 2 hours or until tender. 🙂
