  • To make pork for sliders, lightly grease a crock pot insert and place pork tenderloins in crock pot. Mix together BBQ Sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes in a bowl and pour into crock pot. Cover and cook on low 7 hours. Shred pork with 2 forks and continue to cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • To make SPAM®, slice into 1/2 inch slices and cook until browned on both sides in a nonstick pan coated with Vegetable oil. Cut each piece in half so that it fits on the rolls.

  • Add coleslaw mix, shredded carrot, pineapple, and green onions and stir to mix well. Sprinkle macadamia nuts on top and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cut rolls open and fill half with pork filling and half with SPAM® slices. Drizzle with BBQ sauce and top with coleslaw.
