BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders

The most likely workouts happening on Super Bowl Sunday are by those on the field and by the slow cooker in the kitchen.  The Pats (shout out) and the Giants have got the prior taken care of, but who’s going to work that slow cooker?  With a little help from a pork roast, a tangy BBQ sauce, and some sweet buns, your slow cooker is going to get a great workout and your going to get a savory reward.  Go Pats!

1 medium onion, chopped
½ cup ketchup
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons salt
1 ¼ teaspoons black pepper
A few squirts of your favorite BBQ sauce (optional, and I like Sweet Baby Rays)
2 small pork roasts (about 1.5 pounds each)
Slider buns (I like the sweet Hawaiian buns)

1.  Combine all ingredients minus the pork and buns in a slow cooker and mix together.  Add the two pieces of pork.  Cover and cook for 8 hours on low. 
2.  After 8 hours, use 2 forks to shred the pork and mix with sauce.  Top each slider bun with a dollop of pulled pork and sit back, relax, and enjoy the game!
