Southern Pulled Pork Shooters with Cheese Grits & Creamy Coleslaw

Do you sometimes have a dish at a restaurant you enjoy so much, you simply must recreate it at home? This recipe for southern pulled pork shooters with cheese grits and creamy coleslaw got its inspiration that way. A few years back, before I was living in Central Florida, I was in Orlando on family vacation. We went to a well know BBQ restaurant, and I had something that they call a Six-Shooter. It has been stuck in my head ever since! Basically, it was a cup filled with layers of cheesy grits, brisket, coleslaw and jalapeno. YUM. I finally got around to making my own version of this dish. It only took me a few years to get around to it.

Some things are worth the wait.

This is one of those recipes that will WOW your friends, but it comes together very simply. If you’ve spent any amount of time reading this blog, you know I like to keep things simple. Most of my recipes are semi-homemade or include some kind of shortcut. Kitchen shortcuts are a wonderful thing if they don’t take away from the deliciousness of the recipe. Litehouse Coleslaw Dressing is my secret ingredient for these pulled pork shooters.

I used this easy slow cooker pulled pork recipe, but you could alternately buy prepackaged pulled pork or even pick up a to-go order from your favorite local BBQ joint. I won’t tell!

I’m super picky when it comes to coleslaw. The ready-made stuff you get from the grocery deli department just doesn’t cut it. I like my coleslaw to taste fresh and have some crunch, which is something it loses after sitting for a while.

Combining a bag of coleslaw mix and jar of creamy Litehouse Coleslaw Dressing is the perfect solution – giving you the freshness without a lot of fuss. This also gives you control over how creamy you want your coleslaw. Not to mention, it tastes AMAZING. Litehouse Coleslaw Dressing is a staple for my summer-inspired meals.

Anything served in a cup is just so dang cute.
