Pulled Pork Sliders with Red Cabbage Slaw
My mom was in town last weekend and got to come to my 1000th Post Party. She commented that she was shocked at how calm I was on Saturday leading up to the party. My stress-free day was largely thanks to all the help my Mom and Hubby provided, but it was also a function of the fact that I did as much ahead of time as I could. No one wants a stressed out hostess when they come over.
These sliders are a perfect example of something that can be made pretty far in advance. I had whipped up some Crockpot Hawaiian Pulled Pork a couple weeks ago because pork was on sale. Since that recipe makes a huge amount of pulled pork, I always freeze about half of it and this time was no different. I had whipped up the Red Cabbage Slaw on Friday afternoon, so literally all that needed to be done was assembling these little guys.
About ten minutes before guests started arriving, we put the slider buns on a plate, reheated the pork, threw it on the buns, and slapped on some slaw. These Pulled Pork Sliders with Red Cabbage Slaw were a huge hit! Hubby even whipped up another batch late-night after many rounds of champagne and rum punch had been consumed.
How do you stay stress-free leading up to a party?
