Brown Sugar Balsamic Pork Skillet Sliders start in the slow cooker & then finish in the skillet. They are simple & over the top delicious for your game day menu!
I think it’s safe to say that I have a pork obsession. Whenever I am offered the choice, I will choose pork over anything else. We make some sort of pork recipe here no less than a couple times a week. I love to make it on the grill or in the slow cooker & add the leftovers to whatever it is I’m making the next night too.
I also love my game day recipes. So it should come as no surprise that I use pork in as many game day recipes as I can. It’s great on nachos, in loaded tater tots, queso & so much more.

One of our favorite ways to use it is in skillet sliders. They are so easy to make because most of the cooking is done in the slow-cooker all day. Then you just shred, assemble & bake for a short time to melt the cheese.
They are incredibly tasty & my 12″ cast iron skillet never is quite large enough to make enough for my hungry crowd. I’m thinking I may get all the slow-cookers going at once & then I can just make several batches of these in order to keep everyone happy.
Or I can keep them all to myself & not share with the kids. Because I really don’t like to have to share my pork.
Pork Skillet Sliders
Just look at that delicious pork. My mouth is watering just looking at these images. I want to make more. Good thing we have a game on tonight so I have an excuse to make another skillet full.
The family just loves these & when guests join us for the game, wow they are gone almost as soon as I pull them out of the oven. In fact, it’s a good thing that game day happens 4 times a week because that gives me ample opportunity to make these again & again.
You really can’t go wrong with this dish. Simple, easy & INSANELY delicious is where it’s at! These hit all those & more!
