Pulled Pork & Swiss Chard Sliders

Happy Saturday, darlings!

These are EASY. Super easy, yet tasty and cute enough for a small dinner party we had last week. This is a short recipe post; fortunately it's basically impossible to mess up.


1 Pork Shoulder, any lb. you like
2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 c. barbecue sauce of your liking, I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's
4-5 stalks of swiss chard
1 tsp. garlic salt
2 tbsp. fine quality olive oil


Using your slow cooker, set on Low or High, cook your pork according to the size. I tend to use Google to search how long to cook it for, but generally I wind up cooking most sizes for 5-6 hours. You want the pork to be soft and easy to pull apart with two forks.

Place your pork in the slow cooker, then cut little slits on the top, and sprinkle your seasonings over it. Cover with barbecue sauce, and place the lid over it. Allow to cook according to directions.

Once your pork is done, cut about an inch of stem off the swiss chard and throw it in a large sauce pan with the garlic salt and olive oil. Allow to simmer and the swiss chard will cook way down. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes. Warm up your slider buns, scoop a little pork on it, and cover with swiss chard. That's it! I told you it was easy...
