  • 1 4-5 lbs Pork Roast I like the shoulder roast
  • 1 Medium sized onion chopped
  • 1 Container of Feta Cheese
  • 1 Jar King's Hawaiian BBQ Sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. First sear the roast on all sides before placing in the slow cooker. Sear for about 5-7 on each side. Most people don't do this step. This is my secret to really good pork roast. It caramelizes the fat on the outside for an additional level of flavor. Searing also keeps all the juices inside for moist and delicious pulled pork.
  2. Next add about half the onions to the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Salt and pepper the entire roast to your taste. Place the seared roast on top of the onions. Then put the remaining half onion on top.
  4. Pour your favorite King's Hawaiian BBQ Sauce over the top. Be sure to coat all the sides with the sauce. I used the Original Sweet Pineapple this time.
  5. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours, until the roast is done.
  6. Once the roast is done carefully remove from the slow cooker and let rest for 10 min. After 10 minutes, take two forks and shred. It should be so easy to shred, since it has been cooking all day. You can either dump all the pork back in the slow cooker and mix it up, or just add a about a cup at a time of the liquid from the slow cooker to the pork and mix. I don't like mine too juicy so I add the juice a little at a time until it is covered nicely. Then I remove the rest of the juice and place the pulled pork back in the slow cooker to keep warm to transport to the tailgating party
  7. A quick and easy tip for making the best sliders is to take all the King's Hawaiian buns out of the box. Then turn them all on the side and using a bread knife cut them in half all at the same time. Grill the entire top and bottoms with a little butter to make them crispy. Anything is better with butter. After the buns cool, you can place them back in the box for easy transporting to the tailgating event.
  8. Build your sliders by grabbing a couple of buttered buns. Then pile on the meat and top will a little feta cheese. Close with the top of the bun and place a pickle on top.
