Sliders are up there with some of the best party appetizers and finger foods. But these teriyaki pulled pork pull apart sliders take it to the next level. Instead of mini sandwiches masquerading as sliders, these King’s Hawaiian Rolls stuffed with delicious teriyaki-smothered pulled pork are everything you’re looking for in your next party or game day gathering!

These easy pull apart sliders are made with pulled pork, teriyaki sauce, King’s Hawaiian Rolls, and fresh scallions for a unique Asian-inspired fusion flavor. They’re perfect for serving a crowd during game day parties and cookouts! And they’re even a fun way to shake up lunch or dinner with the family if you’re already a fan of sliders.

Teriyaki Pulled Pork Sliders Ingredients

You only need 4 ingredients to make these easy pull apart sliders:

  • King’s Hawaiian Rolls
  • Pulled pork
  • Kikkoman Takumi Triple Ginger Teriyaki
  • Scallions

We recommend making a batch of our slow cooker pulled pork ahead of time for this recipe. It cooks overnight, so all you have to do is pull it in the morning and store it in the fridge or freezer. Then it’s ready to use for recipes like these pulled pork sliders (and many other pork dishes)!

What really adds a ton of delicious flavor to these sliders is the Kikkoman Takumi Triple Ginger Teriyaki. This sauce has a sweet and savory flavor with powerful notes of ginger, which complements the salty pork and sweet Hawaiian rolls. We don’t recommend making this recipe without it! Plus, it’s much thicker than traditional teriyaki sauce (almost like a glaze), which gives these sliders their irresistible sticky coating. 

And while the teriyaki sauce does make these pull apart sliders pretty messy, it’s so worth it for all that delicious flavor. Besides, sometimes the messiest foods are the best foods 🙂

How To Make Pull Apart Pork Teriyaki Sliders

To make these fun pull apart sliders, you’ll essentially core out each Hawaiian roll and then stuff them with pulled pork. Add a drizzle of teriyaki sauce and some scallions, then bake them in the oven for the easiest finger food party appetizer ever!

Here’s a detailed breakdown of how to make pull apart teriyaki pulled pork sliders:

  1. Create wells on the top of each Hawaiian roll (don’t separate them!) by cutting circles, slicing about halfway down into each roll, and gently tearing the centers out.
  2. Stuff each well with pulled pork.
  3. Pour the triple ginger teriyaki sauce over the sliders, making sure to coat the pulled pork generously in sauce!
  4. Top with sliced scallions, then bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until warm and golden.

Tip: Don’t throw away those Hawaiian roll scraps after slicing them – snack on them while you cook, or save them for another recipe! You can make croutons, french toast, and so many other delicious things with the extra bread.

Teriyaki Pulled Pork Pull Apart Sliders

You only need 4 ingredients and 20 minutes to make these delicious and unique Asian fusion teriyaki pulled pork pull apart sliders!
Servings 12 sliders
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place the Hawaiian rolls in a baking dish. With a small paring knife, carefully cut circles into the top of each roll, slicing about halfway down into the roll. Use your fingers to gently tear the centers out, so that you end up with small wells in each roll.
  • Stuff the rolls with pulled pork, then pour the triple ginger teriyaki sauce evenly over the sliders. Top with sliced scallions.
  • Bake sliders for 10 minutes, or until warm and slightly golden. Serve immediately.


Slow cooker pulled pork: You can make our easy slow cooker pulled pork ahead of time for this recipe, or use store-bought pulled pork for an easier shortcut.
Kikkoman Takumi Teriyaki Sauce: We absolutely recommend using the triple ginger Kikkoman Takumi sauce for this recipe. It’s thicker than a typical teriyaki sauce, almost like a glaze, so it gets sticky and delicious (although messy) when it bakes into these sliders. Plus, the triple ginger flavor adds a ton of zing that complements the savory pork and sweet Hawaiian rolls!
Cutting wells into the Hawaiian rolls: The goal is to end up with a hole in each roll you can stuff with pork – check out our video here on how to do this if you need a visual! The leftover bread makes a great snack while you’re cooking – or you can save it for later to make french toast bites or croutons.
