Pulled Pork Sliders & Broccoli Slaw

My idea of a fun date night is either going out to eat or preparing a super easy dinner. After that spending time talking with Anthony and having a little dessert equates to a perfect night for me.

I am always on the lookout for fast recipes that help make for minimal time spent in the kitchen. When I saw these mini hamburger buns and pulled pork at Trader Joe's, I knew it would be perfect for a date night.

Serving just meat and bread isn't really healthy, so I grabbed a bag of Broccoli Slaw and Champagne Vinaigrette. The result: tasty meal that took 10 minutes (maybe less)!

Ingredients (idea from the back of the Trader Joe's bag)

  • 1 package Pulled Pork meat (16 oz)
  • 1 package Mini Hamburger Buns
  • 1 12 oz Bag Broccoli Slaw
  • 1 Fuji Apple, diced
  • 1/4 cup Raisins/Craisins
  • 1/4 cup Pecan pieces
  • 1/3 cup Dressing (I used a Light Champagne Vinaigrette)


Dice apple and mix with broccoli slaw in a large bowl. Add the raisins, pecan pieces, and dressing. Toss to combine. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 

Heat up the pork and scoop onto the buns. Enjoy!

What's your idea of a nice date night? 

P.S. Thank you Sven who made my date night button!
