Grown-ups should always be involved in any activities involving heat, sharp knives and appliances.
BBQ pulled pork sliders are a game-day favorite. The secret to dropping the sugar in these is using ripe nectarines and cocoa powder to sweeten the BBQ Sauce. Apples in the slaw add extra sweetness and delicious crunch. This recipe makes a big batch, so you’ll comfortably please a crowd or have leftovers for a quick weekday lunch. You can cook the pork in a 6-quart slow cooker or in the oven (see Variation), depending on your preference. Serve the slaw on the side or inside the sliders. If inside, be sure to cut the vegetables into strips small enough to fit in the buns.
