This slider recipe was created by accident when we had a surplus of root beer from a party. Now we can't have BBQ any other way! &mdashEden Dranger, Los Angeles, California

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (2 liters) root beer
  • 1 bone-in pork shoulder roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • SLAW:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 package (14 ounces) coleslaw mix
  • ASSEMBLY:
  • 60 plain doughnut holes
  • 60 appetizer skewers
  • Additional barbecue sauce, optional

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring root beer to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook, uncovered, until liquid is reduced by half, 30-45 minutes. Transfer to a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce, salt and ginger. Add roast, turning to coat.
Cook, covered, on low until pork is tender, 8-10 hours. For slaw, in a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, vinegar and syrup. Stir in coleslaw mix. Refrigerate, covered, until flavors are blended, at least 1 hour.
Remove pork from slow cooker; skim fat from cooking juices. Remove meat from bones; shred with two forks. Return juices and pork to slow cooker; heat through.
To serve, cut doughnut holes in half; cut a thin slice off bottoms to level. Serve pork and slaw in doughnut holes; secure with skewers. If desired, serve with additional barbecue sauce.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled pork mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a covered saucepan, stirring gently.
Yield: 5 dozen.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Serve these sliders assembled or keep the meat hot on a buffet table with all the fixings and have guests make their own.
  • The root beer adds flavor to the shredded meat, but doesn’t make it too sweet.
