Ingredients

  • 1 4-5 lb boneless pork roast, (loin or butt)* remove any strings that might be holding it together
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can whole cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Remove any string that be tying the pork and pat the roast dry. Season the roast with kosher salt, pepper and garlic powder. (Get the seasoning in all the crevices). Place roast in the slow-cooker.

  • In a large bowl mix together pineapple, cranberry sauce, nutmeg, cloves and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Pour mixture over the pork in the slow-cooker. Cover and cook for 7.5 hours on low.

  • Pork should easily pull apart with two forks. Serve with sauce spooned over top. This dish is excellent served over mashed potatoes.

Notes

*If you use a Boston butt roast for this recipe you will want to remove the meat from the slow cooker before shredding it into the sauce. A butt roast has a considerable amount of fat you will want to discard as your shredding. Shred the meat separately and place it back in the sauce to keep warm once you have removed all the excess fat. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
