Slow cooker pineapple pulled pork recipe that can be served in tacos or on a bun for a burger. As a bonus, it is served with a delicious, homemade pineapple BBQ sauce!
You don’t have to heat up your kitchen with this recipe. This slow cooker pineapple pulled pork will make your life a breeze!! One of the things I dread about the summertime is how hot our Texas kitchen gets when I turn on the oven. I find myself using our retro toaster oven and slow cooker so much more. For the first 3 years of our marriage, we lived in old houses with A/C window units. You can imagine how hot it got!! Even now in our new, 2008-built house the central A/C just can’t keep up with how toasty it gets when the oven is turned on and it’s 95+ degrees outside. Instead, I tend to eat a little healthier (not as much cookie and cake-baking!) and make more meals in our Crock Pot.
Living in Austin, TX we are alllll about the tacos. Al pastor, migas, steak and chicken… you name it, we love it! These slow cooker pineapple pulled pork tacos are a little sweet and a little savory for the perfect flavor combo. After cooking the pork in the slow cooker, a quick pineapple barbecue sauce is whipped up in a blender or food processor. This sauce gives these tacos the extra WOW! factor. Top them with your crumbled cheese of choice (goat cheese, feta, queso fresco…) some green onions and cilantro and you have yourself some food truck-worthy tacos.
This recipe makes A LOT of pineapple pulled pork. It will feed about 8 people ~2 tacos each, so it is perfect for feeding a small crowd. Hope you enjoy!
