It’s pretty much the perfect bite. A sweet, spicy jalapeño corn muffin topped with savory pulled pork and a crispy, sweet slaw on top to refresh the palate. Bring. It. On.
The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t actually have to make anything from scratch. Got a great BBQ joint? Pick up the pulled pork with sauce and some slaw. Grab a dollar box of Jiffy corn muffins, add some jalapeños and bake in mini muffin tins. Cut the top off those baby muffins and then top with pulled pork and slaw. Done! My favorite recipe for pulled pork is done in the oven and cooked overnight. It’s more work than ordering from your favorite BBQ spot, but I personally think it’s worth it. The coleslaw recipe I always come back to is Emeril’s. I haven’t found a better, more delicious version!
Turning this meal into a “mini” version with the tiny muffins makes it even more of a crowd pleaser. It’s perfect for your tailgating party because these are bite-size and easy to manage. The rich pork BBQ is off-set by the tiny portion, so dig in!
Pair Jalapeño Corn Muffins Topped with Pork BBQ & Slaw with a Farmhouse Saison. Saisons are earthy and spicy with a fruity tartness that brings together the smoky, layered flavors of these mini pork corn muffins. The finish is crisp and quenching, a perfect companion to these savory morsels.
