Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pulled Pork

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

As promised here, here is the Hawaiian pulled pork recipe from my daughter’s luau birthday party.  It’s great because everything goes into a slow cooker and 8-10 hours later, your food is ready.  Whoever invented the slow cooker, I love you.  You make my life easy in so many ways.

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pulled Pork


  • 3 lbs pork butt or shoulder, cut into 3-4″ pieces
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (small pieces but not quite minced)
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 can (15 oz) pineapple bits, drained
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Cut the pork up and put in the slow cooker.  Add the rest of the ingredients and cover.  Cook on low heat for 8-10 hours, or until the pork can be easily shred with two forks.
  • Using your two forks, shred all the meat in the slow cooker and turn off heat.
  • Serve on rolls (I serve this on King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls)

 What do you serve with your pulled pork?

  1. Oh. Yum. I am going to have to try this!!

  2. Great recipe! It looks so tender and delicious and I love that it’s done in the slow cooker!

  3. I make a yummy traditional pulled pork, but when we’re especially busy during the week I’d love to mix it up – this looks like a great way to do it!

  4. This look pin-worthy! Thanks for sharing! YUM!

  5. Mmm! Pinned! Can’t wait to try this recipe. And I have the perfect hawaiian roll recipe to use with it.

  6. Found this via Super Sunday Stumble. This looks SO delicious! I can’t wait to try ti! Thanks for sharing. I stumbled and tweeted!

  7. How many does this serve? I am making it for my son’s party and there will be about 30 people there.

    • I would double it. I used the smaller Hawaiian sweet rolls and this would have easily fed 15 people. Using larger buns maybe 10-12?? If you have any leftovers, it freezes well.
