Spring is such a beautiful time of year in FL. The weather is warm, but not too hot yet, so it's a great time to be outside all day long! Playing all day leaves little time to make dinner when we get home, so I like to throw something in the slow cooker before we leave. My Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sliders topped with Alexia Onion Rings are on the table quickly and have the perfect barbecue flavor we crave.
These pulled pork sliders are delicious all their own, but topping them with Alexia Onions Rings took them to a whole new level! I love sandwiches with a crunch, so the onion rings definitely brought that, but more importantly is the taste! The crunchy, sweet onions rings combined with the tender juicy pork and sweet tang of the barbecue sauce on a soft slider bun bring together so many wonderful flavors and textures, your mouth will be happy happy!
I want to take a moment to tell you how much I truly love these products. I'm not usually one to eat frozen onion rings or fries, but I LOVE the Alexia products! All of the Alexia products are high quality, 100% natural, and totally delicious! Did I mention how convenient they are? Y'all, I do love to make homemade, but sometimes I just don't have the time. I always keep Alexia fries and onion rings in the fridge to help me save time. They don't have that frozen taste. I like that!!
Okay, back to the recipe... The pork is so easy to make, y'all! It is just 3 ingredients and all day in the slow cooker. All you have to do is season the pork with salt and pepper and place it in the slow cooker with the fat cap facing up. Pour in one can of your favorite root beer and set it on LOW for 8-10 hours. When you are ready to eat, you drain off the liquid and shred that pork with a fork. It is so amazingly tender and delish!
Once the pork is nicely shredded, you top it with a small bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce...
and give it a good stir to coat the pork...
That's it! The pulled pork is ready to go! To assemble your sliders you'll need cooked Alexia Onion Rings and some soft slider buns...
Top the buns with the pulled pork, and a couple of crispy baked Alexia Onion Rings...
top it off with the bun lid. I like to garnish with a pickle skewered on a pick to make them even cuter...
Serve with Alexia Sweet Potato or new Rosemary Fries and enjoy this super quick and easy meal any night of the week!

Pick up all of the Alexia products at Walmart in the freezer section. When I go to Walmart, I like to stock up to keep each of the different flavors in my freezer.
