This barbecue pulled pork slow cooker recipe is the perfect meal to throw in your crock pot at the beginning of the day and come home from work to a delicious simple dinner.
This Slow Cooker Barbecue Pineapple Pulled Pork recipe is so simple you're going to think I'm lying. But I'm not, I swear! It's pure delicious. Sure, I still love my stand-by pulled pork recipe for something mild and easily incorporated into other dishes, but if you're looking for sweet barbecue goodness? This is the ticket!
I originally published this slow cooker pulled pork recipe in 2010 when I was just getting comfortable in the kitchen. My slow cooker was a favorite tool of torture back in those days and it was a definite lottery when dinner came around. Would the recipe work? Would it be a terrifying disaster? Who's going to test it first?! Thankfully, this pork recipe came out great and here seven years later it's still a favorite in our home. The ox tail soup I made then next week though? That one won't ever see the light of day again!
