BBQ Pork Sandwich

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 9 oz. package cole slaw


  • 12 pack brioche slider buns optional
  • 3 cups pulled pork (or use store bought)
  • coleslaw see recipe above
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce OPTIONAL & use more or less depending on how saucy you want the sliders (I like Sweet Baby Rays original)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt or garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds



  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together mayo, mustard, apple cider vinegar, onion powder and sea salt. Toss in the coleslaw mix. Stir everything together until the slaw is completely coated in the dressing. I like to make this a couple of hours before serving, so the flavors have time to marinate together.


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Slice the slider buns in half and remove the top of the buns and set aside.
  • Place the bottom half of the buns in a 9×13 dish. Layer the pulled pork over the the buns, top with BBQ sauce, if desired, and replace the top of the buns.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add butter, Worcestershire sauce, onion salt and poppy seeds. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until completely melted.
  • Spoon the butter mixture over the top of the buns ensuring poppy seeds cover the bun tops. Cover the dish with foil and bake at 375° for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  • If using slaw, once sliders have cooled a few minutes, remove the bun tops, add a spoonful of slaw and replace tops. Enjoy!
