Two-Ingredient Pineapple Pulled Pork
Conquer your busy weeknight schedule by making this one-pot, two-ingredient Pineapple Pulled Pork, just in time for dinner! Don’t even heat up the kitchen!
Friends… Life has been CRAZY here!
I’m sure that everyone has said exactly the same thing at some point. We seem to have something going on every moment of the day. To make things easier on us for dinner, we rely heavily on our slow cooker. From dinners, like Slow Cooker Pot Roast, to sides, like Spicy Blistered Cream Corn with Rosemary, the slow cooker is a lifesaver.
Today we wanted to share a recipe that is so easy and delicious that I’m surprised we haven’t shared it already. Pineapple. Pulled. Pork. The best part? There are only TWO ingredients and no pre-cooking! What is better than that, am I right? Oh wait… you know we have to put our C-N-G spin on it as well. So with it still being summer time, why not jazz it up a bit with fresh pineapple? Make this dinner in the winter as well and use canned pineapple. Or you can leave it out completely – because really, this salsa in the star.
We always watch our favorite grocer for sales in the meat department. We’ll pick up a pork tenderloin (or two!) and toss it in the freezer. We’ll also grab a couple jars of pineapple salsa to keep in the pantry. Then all we have to do is thaw the tenderloin the night before in the fridge so it’s ready to go in the morning while getting ready to head out for our day. By the time we get home we have dinner waiting for us!
