Hello Melinda, a tough one to get rid of, hope this helps you out,
Spray it well with a mixture of 1 gallon white vinegar, 1/2-1 cup of salt. I usually also add a squirt of Dawn liquid dishwashing soap to keep the mixture on the moe upright weeds longer, but it's not necessary in your case since the purslane is ground hugging. You may need to apply moe than once, a few days apart, then keep it at bay with a good dose of the mixtue when and if you see any regrowth.
This is what I use on weeds:
All-Natural Weed KIller
I spray straight vinegar on anything unwanted in the garden. However, you have to be very targeted because it will kill whatever it comes into contact with...but it does work.
Take a 1 gallon plastic milk jug, rinse well. remove the cap and cut out the bottom, the entire bottom. Put straight vinegar in a spray bottle. Use the milk jug by putting it over the weed to be sprayed, the sides of the jug will protect other garden plants. Now spray the vinegar on the weed you isolated through the mouth of the jug.

Hi Melinda: You have to kill to the root. If you pull it out, I'm betting you shake the dirt off. Don't do that :) Don't do that with any weed because sometimes the seeds are on the roots and when you shake the dirt off, you are just replanting the seeds. So, be tough and through out the dirt too. I know, it hurts, but you can do it. Spray the weed with a mix of
1 gallon of white vinegar
2 cups of Epsom salts
1/4 cup of dish washing detergent, like Dawn.
Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved.
Mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy, sort of swirl it around.
Put in a spray bottle and spray the weeds liberally, in the morning after the dew has gone. Then, by evening the weeds should be dead or on their way out. Don't spray anything you want to keep or it will die too. I have used this and it works quite well. Also, it's good for making an edging as it kills only what it touches. If you have something like a piece of cardboard, hold it up and down, edgewise, and spray the area you want as an edge. Just be careful not to spray your flowers and/or bushes.
Hi Melinda, sorry about having invasive weeds. Good luck Search Results

The best method for eliminating purslane is by hand pulling. Typically, a single purslane plant will cover a large area, so you can easily clear large areas affected by purslane weed with only a little effort. Herbicide can be used on these plants as well but work best while the plants are still young.Jun 22, 2020

Chickens love to eat purslane!
Remember that every leaf can grow a new plant. Always be sure to gather up ALL the broken pieces.
Pull it by hand if you want to get rid of it permanently.
We manage purslane in my garden. It does provide gound cover but it is also very good to eat. The younger plants are best. They get eaten plain in salads and sauteed. It is like a forgotten vegetable. But I also understand why you want to get rid of it too.
