Slow cooked pulled pork in a sweet and tangy pineapple, brown sugar and soy sauce glaze.
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 2-3 pound pork shoulder roast
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 2/3 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sriracha
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cut pork roast into half or thirds and sear on all sides until brown. Place pork roast into the bowl of a slow cooker.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients until well blended. Reserve 2 cups of the sauce. Pour the remaining sauce over the pork and cook for 6-8 hours on low, or until the roast shreds easily with a fork.
- About 30 minutes before pork is ready, pour the reserved sauce into a medium sauce pan and simmer over medium heat until sauce thickens and reduces by about half. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Toss with reserved sauce and serve on rice, or as a filling for tacos or burritos.
