Hawaiian Pork Sliders


No proper Luau would be complete without a little bit of pork. Let’s skip the whole pig roast this year and make a slow cooked pulled pork that’s simmered with all the flavors of the islands. Pineapple, brown sugar, Korean marinade, and orange are slowly married together over a tender pork shoulder. Serve on sweet Hawaiian rolls or over Coconut-Jasmine Rice for a party ready showstopper that can only be overshadowed by some killer Hula skills. Hawaiian Pork Sliders


3-4 lb pork shoulder

1 1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 bell pepper, chopped

Juice of 1 orange + zest

20 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained

1/2 cup Korean BBQ sauce

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 cloves garlic, minved

1 onion thinly sliced

Coarse salt and ground black pepper

Hawaiian Rolls for serving


1. Place ingredients in a slow cooker and add the pork shoulder. Turn once to coat each side thoroughly. Cook on high for an hour. Reduce heat to low and and cook an additional 6-7 hours.

2. Remove the pork shoulder from the slow cooker and place on a large platter. Shred with two forks until completely separated. Return the shredded meat into the slow cooker and cook for 45 minutes.

  1. In my opinion, pork shoulder cooked in a crockpot is just not as flavorful as it is cooked outside on the grill or smoker. However, this recipe sounds delicious! Exactly what I’ve been looking for! Thanks for sharing Trace!
