Hawaiian Pulled Pork

IMG_8264

There is a great Hawaiian restaurant here that makes a fabulous Kahlua pork, and the best macaroni salad (come back and check out tomorrows post for that recipe)!  I could eat there weekly, but alas, I restrain myself.  I have made pulled pork at home many times, as it is super easy to do in your crock pot, and you can prep it the night before to start cooking first thing the next morning.  It also makes quite a bit, but freezes really well.  It is great for sandwiches and salads, or just on the side as your serving of meat.

This time around I wanted to make some pulled pork with a Hawaiian flare, and test out a recipe I found for a Hawaiian style macaroni salad as well…our own little luau!  So I used this recipe to create some fabulous pulled pork sandwiches for dinner.

Serves 10-12 for about $1.05/serving

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/2 cup chicken broth – $0.23

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 cup chili sauce – $1.49

 1 (6-ounce) can pineapple juice – $0.38

1 medium onion, chopped – $0.33

2 carrots, chopped – I omitted the carrots

 Pour half of the pineapple juice mixture over pork. Reserve remainder for Hawaiian sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours until the pork is easy to shred with a fork.

Meanwhile, make the Hawaiian sauce.  Pour remaining half of  pineapple juice mixture into a medium saucepan.  Add garlic and ginger and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Serve the shredded pork on rolls drizzled with the Hawaiian sauce or on the side for dipping.

ENJOY!
