Pulled Pork Sliders on Tomato Buns!

One of my favorite foods to eat is pulled pork, but for some reason I have not made it in a long time.  I was going to have guests over, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to throw it into the crock pot and have for dinner, but after I started to cook, we decided to go out for dinner at Susan Feniger’s STREET.  I didn’t mind because I got a whole crock pot full of pulled pork to myself and I got to try a restaurant which I had been wanting to try for quite some time!  Follow my recipe below for my delicious pulled pork and pulled pork sliders on tomato buns!

2 tablespoons barbecue seasoning, divided

1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided

1 (5-6 lb.) bone in pork loin center rib roast [or two 3 lb boneless roasts)

1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes (with or without spices)

1/3 cup cider vinegar

1/4 cup tomato sauce (or 1 TBSP tomato paste)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons mustard

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper flakes

After a few days of eating pulled pork with veggies, I wanted something a little different, so I wanted to make sliders.  But, I didn’t want the bun, so I decided to make the slider buns out of tomatoes, and I added a side of broccoli coleslaw.  The tomato buns were a little messy and had to use a fork and knife (I didn’t mind because I actually don’t like eating messy food without a fork and knife).

Cover and either set aside or place in fridge

Cut off top and bottom of each tomato (to allow them to sit without falling over)

(If you would like to pick your tomato buns up, I would recommend not cutting them at this point; just try to get tomatoes that sit nicely)
