Spicy Pineapple Pork Butt Roast
This delicious, sweet, and savory dish is sure to become a new family favorite.
With pork roasts being a cheaper grocery alternative to roast beef, it is now becoming a more common home staple. As a result, new ways to dress up your pork roast are always welcome.
Not only are you looking for flavor, but also ease of preparation. This Spicy Pineapple Pork Butt Roast offers both.
This recipe is also gluten-free too. So if you or members of your family need to look for wheat-free alternatives, this is a recipe you should add to your collection.
Here, fresh pineapple and spicy jalapeno are paired with:
- toasted sesame oil,
- five-spice powder,
- creamy peanut butter,
- and fresh cilantro
for a rich and flavorful combination.
The beautiful other thing about this is that it is a slow cooker meal. Meaning, prep it, put it in the pot, and carry on with your day. Knowing that when you return home, dinner is almost done.
As written, this recipe contains a couple of extra steps that you can skip if you are short on time.
To make this a truly one-pot meal, and to save even more time, simply place the well-trimmed and seasoned pork butt roast directly into your slow cooker without searing. In addition, the juices can be thickened right in the slow cooker crock by stirring in the arrowroot slurry with the other ingredients 30 minutes before it is done cooking.
Important Tip: Trim as much excess fat as possible from the pork butt roast prior to cooking. This will greatly reduce the amount of fat that ends up in the very flavorful juices/sauce.
