Hawaiian BBQ Pork (crockpot)

018_1

This weekend I started the #crockpotchallenge with a bang with Hawaiian BBQ pork. Original recipe was from Erica @ for the sake of cake!

My Mom actually put the ingredients in the crockpot for me while I was running the 1/2 marathon this weekend.

Here is my version of the recipe:

This recipe made enough for Scott and I and my parent’s to have dinner and to all have it for leftovers the next night!

This recipe will for sure be a crockpot staple in my house. 🙂 I really like crockpot recipes that are ok in the crockpot for up to 10 hours, because it I put it in the crockpot in the morning before work, I usually don’t get home from work for at least 10-11 hours later, so this one is a winner because it does so well just hanging out on low in the crockpot all day –> then just add the pineapple, make some rice and dinner is done! Thanks Erica from the great recipe inspiration. 🙂

I also made apricot chicken in the crockpot with this recipe I found on Pinterest. It was just ok, a little sweet for my taste. I was hoping it would be more apricot-y with all the apricot preserves but it just wasn’t. Not a total fail, but not something I would make again. Same thing for this beef and broccoli recipe.

3 new recipes in to the crockpot challenge and 1 total winner so far! Smile

    That looks super yummy! I like the longer cooking recipes too. So you think the meat would cook okay without being browned first? I always just avoid recipes that call for any pre-crockpot meat cooking…hadn’t realized I could skip that step!

  2. I made chicken with pineapple in the crockpot tonight. It was really easy but ended up too salty because the other ingredients were soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. The crockpot is going to be my best friend this last semester of grad school I can tell! And my parents are giving us a bunch of pork so we will definitely try this one out!

  3. I love pineapples in ANYTHING! Do you think I could adjust the recipe to use chicken? I’m not a huge pork fan.
