Smashed Plantain Pulled Pork Sliders! Ok, say that five times fast. This recipe was born because we went to a great little restaurant in downtown Bend called Barrio with some friends in town visiting us. On the menu they have these cute little pork carnitas sliders with fried plantains for the buns. They are super tasty, so we decided to make our own Paleo version using our crockpot pulled pork.
Two things we absolutely love are pork and plantains, so it is only natural to put them together for a tasty appetizer when you have guests over, or have a couple of them and make it a dinner. You can totally keep them simple, with just pulled pork and the smashed plantains, or add your favorite sauces and toppings. We like them simple, but have been known to add some mustard or Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo! That stuff is so good! Just slap a little on (just about anything) and you’ll be glad you did!
