The objective is to make something delicious and flavorful without a lot of elbow grease. Therefore my slow cooker meals need to take less than 10 minutes from fridge to pot and less than 10 minutes from pot to plate. No one has an hour before work to brown their meat and saute vegetables.
Slow Cooker Pineapple Pulled Pork is no exception. The only work you will do is the quartering and slicing of an onion and shredding the pork. The meat will be so tender you will have difficult keeping it whole when you remove it from the pot.
The sauce is a teriyaki analog using brown sugar and pineapples to cut the acidity of soy sauce and vinegar. The end result is savory pork with a sweet sauce. This is a wonderful recipe for weeknights or watching the big game. Pork can stay on “keep warm” for hours without getting dry allowing guests to graze and get a slider when they are hungry.
