Shredded Pork Sliders & Ranch Potato Salad


I am so excited! This blog will hit 10,000 views today, at just past my 5 month mark since I started it. I started this blog for me, as a place where I can share my ideas, recipes and stories and I’m so flattered that it’s received so much attention in just 5 months! I greatly appreciate all of my followers and the views that I receive from my subscribers, Facebook and Pinterest. In honor of 10,000 views, I’m posting a recipe that I’ve been meaning to post for oh…..about a week and a half now and time keeps getting away from me. I hope you enjoy!

My Shredded Pork Sliders and Ranch Potato Salad go perfectly together and they are super simple to make! The pork cooks all day in the slow cooker and literally falls apart and the potato salad can be made in advance because the longer it sits, the better it gets!

Shredded Pork Sliders

What you need;

A 2 pound pork loin. I go with the cheapest option at the store, this is going to cook all day in the slower cooker so it will get super tender and stay moist

1 bottle of beer. Any kind is fine, I used a light beer

1-2 cups (depending on how saucy you like it) of your favorite bbq sauce

8 buttermilk biscuits – sliced in half

1 bag of broccoli slaw

1/2 cup of Poppyseed salad dressing

How to make;

Put pork loin in the slow cooker, season with salt and pepper and pour in a bottle of beer. Cook on low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, remove the pork and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before shredding. It will literally fall apart when you touch it. While the pork is resting, mix the broccoli slaw with the poppyseed dressing and set aside. Shred the pork and toss with bbq sauce until sauced to your liking. Build your slider by placing the pork on the bottom of the biscuit, then the slaw on top of the pork and place the top of the biscuit on top.


Ranch Potato Salad

What you need;

About 2 pounds of red potatoes cubed and boiled – cool completely

1/2 cup of ranch dressing

1/2 cup of mayonnaise

1/4 cup of crumbled bacon or real bacon pieces

3 hard boiled eggs – diced

1/2 cup of Kraft three cheese crumbles

1/4 cup red onion OR scallions – sliced

1/2 tbls dill

Salt & Pepper to taste

How to make;

Cube and boil potatoes, cool completely. I do not peel them, do whatever you prefer. Mix the ranch and the mayo together and mix with potatoes, slowly mix in all other ingredients. Salt & pepper to taste. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, overnight is even better. To make a whole 5 lb bag of potatoes for a larger crowd, double the recipe.
