This set it and forget it Pineapple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is the perfect family meal during a busy week. All it takes is 10 minutes of prep time to get this crock pot pulled pork cooking for the day!

If you have read my post on Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli, then you are already aware of my slow cooker mantra SET IT AND FORGET IT! Pineapple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork keeps within those boundaries.

I live for my slow cooker meal recipes (crock pot recipes, whatever you want to call them), I’m not really sure what I would do without them! They’re such a handy solution to have when I know I have a packed day and need easy meal ideas.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pulled Pork Recipe- pineapple, pork and a simple BBQ sauce takes 10 minutes to put together for a tasty and quick meal.

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.

I mean seriously, does anyone have an hour before work to brown their meat and saute vegetables? Doesn’t that defeat the point of a slow cooker?

Pineapple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is no exception. The only work you will do is quartering and slicing 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 BBQ pulled 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.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • This first step is very important. Don’t skimp (please note sarcasm). Place pork chops through dry ground mustard and 1/2 cup water in the slow cooker. Stir until dry ingredients have disappeared. Place the top on and SET IT AND FORGET IT! Eight hours on low or 4 hours on high.
  • Anywhere between an hour or 5 minutes before serving, use a slotted spoon to fish out pork chops and shred them using two forks. Meat will be so tender it should fall apart easily. Return meat to slow cooker.
  • Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Add to slow cooker mixture to thicken up the sauce a little. Stir.
  • Serve on slider rolls and enjoy!

Questions and Reviews

  1. Anything done in a slow cooker can also be done on very low heat, barely a simmer in a large enamel pot or Dtuch oven. Just keep an eye out to make sure it isn’t cooking too fast and also do not leave the house with your range on!
