Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Tacos

Inspired by a recipe my daughters made at cooking camp over the summer, here is a super easy version of pineapple pork tacos you can throw in your slow cooker on a busy weeknight (hello, fall)! This recipe was my first time trying pineapple on a taco, and, I have to say, it’s so good for something different and refreshing. Hard to go wrong with anything that’s wrapped up in a warm tortilla. :) Enjoy!

  1. This was delicious! I don’t usually comment, but the day got away from me and I didn’t have time for slow cooking, so I converted to the Instant pot and thought I’d share how I did it. First sear the pork (IP sauté mode) 2 to 3 minutes per side in 1 tablespoon of oil. Then pour the pineapple mixture over top, Cook on manual for 40 minutes (20 minutes per pound), and allow pressure to release naturally, about another 25 minutes. I’ll definitely make it again. Maybe next time I’ll get it in early enough to use the slow cooker!

  2. Yum! Made these tonight and even my pickiest of eaters enjoyed them. I barely managed to squirrel away some leftovers for my lunch tomorrow.

  3. I usually keep frozen pineapple chunks on hand. Could you tell me how much frozen pineapple I should use for 1/4 pineapple? Recipe looks delicious!
