It takes just five minutes and three ingredients to create this sweet and spicy Pineapple and Habanero Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. It’s then piled high on a toasted bun and sandwiched between slices of red pepper and fresh pineapple before a pineapple habanero barbecue sauce is spooned over the top to create the messiest, most delicious pork sandwich that has ever met your lips.
It’s hard to believe that a few days ago I caught myself telling my husband that I had changed our dinner menu because I didn’t want to heat up the house using the oven. It seems it was only a few weeks ago where I’d heat up the house using the oven in a heartbeat because of the crazy cold temperatures! No matter what the thermometer says, this three ingredient – yes, THREE! – Pineapple and Habanero Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is destined to become a family favorite.
Just three ingredients, well five if you count the buns and two toppings for sandwiches, and five minutes is all it takes to prepare dinner. And the smell wafting from your kitchen throughout the day will have your stomach growling hours before dinner is served.
This pulled pork is so easy that my five year old could prepare it. Although there’s absolutely no way I’d tell her that as she’d absolutely take me up on that offer! While my three older children are eating breakfast and the baby is hanging out in her bouncy seat on the kitchen floor, all I need to do is put a pork roast in the slow cooker and cover it with two cups of Robert Rothchild Farm’s Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Dip. It only took one bite of this pork to realize why this dip has won so many awards. It’s packed with sweet pineapple flavor with a hint of spice and is absolutely out of this world.
