With Football season in full swing and the holidays right around the corner, you can never have enough recipes to serve to a crowd. These Barbecue Pork Tenderloin Sliders are perfect as an appetizer, along with chili or soup, or even add a side salad for a hearty lunch.
One of our favorite kitchen appliances, the Slow Cooker was our friend in this recipes, making the Pork Tenderloin super easy to cook. Toss it in with red onion, and sprinkle of thyme and let it cook away.
These Sliders are also a great way to use up any leftover you may have. Now of course, we used Pork, but you could also use chicken or beef. A simple toss with your favorite barbecue sauce and a pinch of shredded lettuce stuffed into a KING’S HAWAIIAN® Dinner Rolls.
The sweetness of the dinner roll paired with the tang in the barbecue sauce pairs really well.
