Aloha~ Hawaii!! I honestly thought Hawaii's sandwich would have SPAM in it. Am I the only one. Anyways, if any of you have been to a luau they serve whole roasted pigs. I honestly never had the guts to try it, but I heard it's pretty delicious.
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 8 hours
Serves: 9 small sandwiches
1 (4 lb.) pork butt
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1 recipe of Hawaiian Rolls or other sweet rolls
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsps. each salt, black pepper, garlic powder
1 cup ketchup
1 cup brown sugar
½ tsp. each salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, chili powder
*If you don't want to make your own BBQ sauce you can substitute with 1 cup of your favorite store bought BBQ Sauce.
2 (20 oz.) cans chopped pineapple, drained, chopped a little
⅓ cup red onion, minced
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded, minced
2 Tbps. lime juice
¼ tsp. salt
1. Sprinkle pork with rub spices and massage into all areas of the pork butt. Place pork it in the crock pot.
2. Mix the BBQ sauce ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the crushed pineapple with its juice and mix well.
3. Pour sauce into the crock pot over the meat and spread around. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.
4. About 10 minutes before the pork is ready, make the pineapple relish by combining all ingredients and set aside.
5. When the pork is done, place on a cutting board and shred with 2 forks, discarding the fat. Add a little sauce from the shredded crock pot to the pork and mix together.
6. Place a heaping pile of the pork on the rolls and top with the relish.
