It’s been a scorcher of a summer already! It pains me to turn the oven on…even the stovetop makes my kitchen hotter than it needs to be. I don’t even want to think about what August will be like!
Time to bust out my trusty crockpot again…
It’s been a while since I made my old standby pulled pork recipe. I was all set to make it when I thought, maybe it’s time to try something new. And we were both glad that I did. Delicious!
Hawaiian Pulled Pork
slightly adapted from The Experimental Spoon
3 pounds pork shoulder (or butt)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 (15 ounce) can pineapple rings, drained and chopped
salt and pepper
Place pork in crockpot, followed by onion and remaining ingredients. Cook for 6-8 hours on low. While cooking, when meat looks tender enough, shred with 2 forks so it absorbs more juice.
Makes about 6 servings.
