Ingredients
  • 1 (2-3 pound.) boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • ¾ cup pineapple juice
  • ¾ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cups bagged shredded green cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 4-6 whole wheat hamburger buns
Instructions
  1. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto pork shoulder.
  2. In the bottom of a small to medium slow cooker (I used a 3.5 quart), add half the onions.
  3. Place the pork shoulder on top, then pour the pineapple juice and teriyaki sauce on top. Add the additional onions, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. While the pork is cooking, toss the shredded cabbage with ¼ cup teriyaki sauce. Cover and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  5. When the pork is finished cooking, remove from pot into a large bowl. Shred with two forks, removing any extra visible fat if needed. Place shredded pork back into slow cooker and mix with juices. Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
  6. Serve topped with chopped pineapple and prepared slaw on a whole wheat bun.
