Pulled pork sandwiches are a party staple – they’re easy to make in a slow cooker, affordable, and feed a crowd. However, serving the same old barbecue pulled pork at every party gets boring and predictable. This Pineapple Teriyaki Pulled Pork Sandwich recipe will add variety to your meals while still sticking with the ease and affordability of pulled pork. We especially love this recipe in the summer time – it just feels perfect to enjoy at a pool party or summertime get together. Served with a fruity drink, this is a tropical meal to enjoy!
We topped our sandwich with a broccoli slaw (a bag of pre-shredded broccoli slaw mix, 1/4 cup mayo, 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar, plus salt and pepper to taste) and thought it was the perfect crunchy topping for this sandwich. Other topping ideas include shredded cheddar cheese, dill pickles, red onions, or pickled jalapeños. Speaking of spicy stuff, this recipe is designed to be tropical and a bit sweet. If you like a bit of punch (or just a bit of heat to balance the sweet) to your meal, you can add 2 tbsp. – 1/4 cup of sriracha or similar hot sauce to the pork after you’ve shredded it. The roasty and spicy flavors bring a new dimension to this recipe!

Generously season the pork with salt and pepper. Place in a slow cooker, and add the water and soy sauce. Cook on high for 8 hours.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred. Return to the slow cooker and add the crushed pineapple, pineapple teriyaki sauce, lime juice, and Sriracha sauce (if you like a bit of heat with the sweetness). Mix together, and cook on low until the mixture is warmed through.
Serve the pulled pork on Hawaiian rolls with the broccoli slaw and your other favorite toppings. Enjoy!
