BBQ’d Pork Sirloin Sliders on Biscuits is that delicious savory and sweet recipe that’s made with chopped Pork Sirloin Roast, sweet bbq sauce, sharp white cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions, piled high on hot fresh buttermilk biscuits.
The other day, I was at the local market and noticed that the Pork Sirloin Roasts were on sale, so the first thing that came to my mind was my favorite recipe for Bbq Pork Slidders on biscuits instead of hamburger buns piled up with yummy sharp white cheddar and caramelized onions.
Bbq Pork Slidders on Biscuits is an easy recipe to make, simply season it with olive oil, sear it, add the herbs, and spices and toss it in the oven for a little over an hour and forget it until it’s done. Y’all when I say easy, I mean easy in the sense of seasoning the sirloin roast and tossing it in the oven for an hour or so without having to babysit that bad baby.
What I really love about this recipe is the cooked pork sirloin stores well. I have cooked the pork sirloin roast ahead of time and put it in the freezer before for a quick dinner. You can cook the pork sirloin roast in advance by following the steps 1-6 and then tightly wrapping. Place in your refrigerator for up to 3 days or freezer for up to a months time.
