More About This Recipe

  • Not your mother's pulled pork sandwiches! The sweet heat of spices and pineapple mingle with the pork to step it up. Any time I get an excuse to try out a new pulled pork recipe, I'm happy to oblige. There's just something so nice about having that meat just bubbling away in spices and deliciousness all day, and to come home to the aroma filling your house. For me, it’s especially nice to have tons of pork leftovers in your fridge the whole week to make sandwiches or snack on as I please. This pulled pork is loaded with sweet and spicy flavors like sriracha and pineapple, and it's a perfect version to make as the weather warms up and we all head to the back yard for grilling and picnic fun. This recipe could be the highlight of a luau-themed get-together with some tiki torches and fun cocktails. Or it'd be great for Memorial Day or summer barbecues. Bonus: The slow cooker is not only easy, it keeps your kitchen cool too! The slaw is just some mayo and sriracha on cabbage, but it's one of my favorite simple slaws and it adds a nice cooling element to the sandwich. The pineapple slice on the bottom ensures you have a little fresh pineapple in every bite!
