Chinese Pork Sliders with Pineapple Slaw


Is ground pork really cheap in your area? I seriously thought the grocery store had made a mistake when they were weighing and packaging the meat. Each package was marked as $1.17 per pound which is pretty impressive compared to the costs of just about any other meat product in the store.

So the first time, I bought 4 packages and froze them. Not too long later, after I had only used two packages, I was in the same store and saw they were still marked at $1.17 per pound, so I picked up 5 more packages. And then I needed to do some searching to figure out what to do with 7 pounds of ground pork.

And then this recipe came along.

    for the chinese pork sliders:
  • 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. + 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 2 tbsp. bread crumbs
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. grated ginger
  • salt and pepper
  • Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • shredded romaine lettuce
  • for the pineapple slaw:
  • 1 cup coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup pineapple, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. mayo
  • salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 425. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Combine 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce and 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar together in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the pork, remaining tablespoon of hoisin, tablespoons of rice vinegar,bread crumbs, green onion, ginger, salt and pepper. Form into 12 evenly sized meatballs.
4. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 5-6 minutes per side and flip once while cooking.
5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the coleslaw mix, pineapple, mayo and salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
6. When the meatballs are done, brush the hoisin/rice vinegar glaze over them.
7. Prepare the sliders by slathering mayo on the top and bottom of each hawaiian sweet roll. Place shredded romaine lettuce on the bottom and the meatball on top of that. Place the top of the roll on the meatball. Serve with the slaw.

I really liked these little sliders and with pretty minimal ingredients and a short cook time, you could easily whip these up for a party. I think I would prefer the meatballs to be grilled or pan fried to get a bit of a crusted outer edge to them to add some texture to the soft sweet roll.
