What’s for dinner tonight?  We all could use an easy meal to make that everyone will like.  Put your slow cooker to work and make these Pulled Pork Sliders. 

INGREDIENTS

1 Orange (Zest/Juice)

1/2 Cup Orange Marmalade

1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar

2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin

3 Tablespoons Plus 1 Teaspoon Cider Vinegar (Divided)

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

2 1/2 Pounds Pork Shoulder (Trimmed/Cut Into 3 Inch Pieces)

1 Large Yellow Onion (Sliced)

1/4 Cup Sour Cream

1/2 Head Romaine Lettuce

Pickles & Potato Chips For Serving

Grate 1 teaspoon orange zest into a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker.  Add marmalade, brown sugar, cumin, 2 tablespoons vinegar, kosher salt, and pepper.  Whisk to combine.  Add pork and onion.  Toss to coat.  Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook 4 to 5 hours on high or 7 to 8 hours on low until pork is tender and shreds easily. 

15 minutes before pork is done, squeeze 1/4 cup juice from orange into large-size bowl.  Whisk in sour cream, remaining vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper.  Toss to combine.  Shred lettuce and add to bowl.  Toss to coat. 

Using 2 forks, shred pork and stir into cooking liquid.
