‘Call the Doc’ Pulled Pork Sliders

Perfect for any celebration or weeknight meal, our four net-carb pulled pork gets a low-carb twist by using Zevia, a diet soda made with Stevia and sugar-free BBQ sauce. The big secret is the use of Smart Buns, a gluten-free, high-fiber, low-net carb bun made with a combination of oat fiber and flax. No Smart Buns in your store? No worries, have bun less!

Why use a slow cooker?

We love using the slow cooker in the Skinny Louisiana kitchen. Not only is the slow cooker easy to use, it is safe (no open flame), and energy efficient. Slow cookers consume as little as 150 watts per hour at a low setting and cut electricity cost for cooking by half. (and yes, I love to save money).

Slow cookers range in tons of shapes and sizes, but my personal slow cooker is a  6 quart Crock Pot since I can set the time and go!!!

Where to Shop for Low Carb Ingredients

Before I go over ingredients, know the items used in this recipe can be found at many of your local supermarkets and Drug Emporium. Many of you know my love of Drug Emporium stores. Not only does Drug Emporium have amazing prices (often the cheapest in town), I work with this amazing company in putting on Low Carb Food Demonstrations and product selection for shelves. No Drug Emporium in your town? No worries, you will be able to find the items at your local supermarkets.
