This dish is tasty, satisfying, light enough for Spring or Summer, and feeds an army.

Perfect for a busier-than-usual life, like the one I’ve been leading lately.

Pineapple Jerk Pork Bowl

Based on Slow Cooker Jerk Pork in Pineapple Bowls by How Sweet Eats

3 – 5 lbs. pork shoulder
2 – 3 Tbsp. jerk seasoning
1/3 head red cabbage
1 can pineapple in juice
1/2 red onion
3 Tbsp. cilantro
3 Tbsp. aioli or mayo
1 – 2 Tbsp. sriracha (optional)
Juice of 1 lime
Kosher salt & black pepper

Rub your pork shoulder down and place in your crock pot. Add the juice from the can of pineapple. Cook on low for 8 hours. Shred, take out the bones if there are any, and kick the pot up to high – cook uncovered half an hour to an hour to evaporate some of the liquid. Alternately, spread your pork + juice out in a baking dish and bake @ 400.

While your pork is doing its pork thing, make the slaw by shredding the cabbage, chopping the pineapple, dicing the red onion, chopping the cilantro and tossing with mayo + sriracha + lime juice + a few hits each of salt and pepper.
