I’ve been trying my hand at some more complicated recipes lately…and it stresses me out. My red velvet fiasco comes to mind…I will never touch a beet again. Ever.
So you might say I need some simplicity in my life. Great segway, huh? I had no intention of ever posting this recipe, to be completely honest. I had pork shoulder that was meant for the crockpot (a weekly occurence in my house), but I noticed a lone can of pineapple in the bowels of the pantry. Not one to waste food, I threw it in there with some ginger for good measure, and BOOM. Awesome dinner. Like, super tender, succulent, sweet, salty, savory…OMG. Just do this. It’s so easy it’s a crime not to.
- 3-4 lbs Pork Shoulder
- 1 can Crushed or Cubed Pineapple (in water)
- 2 T Grated Ginger (or ½ t dry)
- Put pork in a crock pot.
- Dump the pineapple on top with all the liquid, too.
- Add the ginger.
- Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.
