Tasty and easy! I liked trying a different option for pulled pork. This was slightly sweet & the teriyaki flavors were there. I used cornstarch instead of flour to thicken. I served on whole wheat hoagies & I liked grilled pineapple, sliced green onions, and thin sliced napa cabbage for some crunch as toppings. Served with roasted sweet potato fries. This would be good at a luau type party. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce, divided
  • 12 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 8 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

  1. In a large skillet, brown roast in oil over medium-high heat. Cut in half; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add the onion, 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove roast; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the flour and remaining teriyaki sauce until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Cover and cook on high for 30-40 minutes or until thickened.
