Wow, wow, wow! If you enjoy BBQ I highly recommend trying this dish. After reading the recipe I was a little bit intimidated by the steps and time required to cook the pulled pork. The piece of meat is large and took quite a while to sear, but other than that the recipe was very easy and yielded a great result!
I opted to use Hawaiian sweet roll buns and they paired perfectly with the pulled pork. Toast the bun with a little butter, add a bit of extra BBQ sauce, top with the pork, and you are good to go with a tasty dish!

Ingredients for Sliders:

*Store-bought coleslaw, to taste
*Season the pork shoulder heavily with salt and pepper.
*Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil on a heavy large sauté pan.
*Sear the pork in pan, fat side down first, until golden brown. Repeat the process on all sides.
*Arrange all vegetables on the bottom of a 12 x 12 inch baking pan, then place pork on top of vegetables.
*Pour some stock in the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan with the help of a spatula until bits on bottom of pan release.
*Pour the stock around the pork, then place the fresh sage along the side of the pork
(these 2 steps add great flavor, so try to do them).
*Cover the pan with aluminum foil to create a tight lid and slow bake in a preheated oven at
350F for 3 hours.
*After 3 hours, check for doneness. Pork should easily pull-away with no effort when scratched with a fork.
*Take pork out of baking pan and place on a cooling rack. Allow to cool at room temp for an hour.
*Pull the pork meat, then place in a large bowl and add your favorite BBQ sauce to taste.
*Mix well to combine.
*In a separate mixing bowl, prepare your favorite prepackaged coleslaw following package instructions.
*Warm, or toast, slider buns if desired.
*Take the bottom of the slider buns and top with BBQ pulled pork, BBQ sauce, coleslaw then top with bun and garnish with a decorative skewer.
