A family favorite for years now!
My whole family loved this but I did change a few things. First, I doubled the roast size so it would not fit in my crock. No problem, I simply used by cast iron roaster and cooked in on the stovetop on a low simmer for the same amount of time. Worked beautifully. Also, I did not strain the cooking liquid since I wanted to have the fruit and celery in the sauce. Worked. It was a hit.
I was looking for a slow cooker recipe for some pork ribs that I found on sale. It's summer & the slow cooker is a blessing for busy, warm days. My family loved the recipe. Will definitely keep this recipe on hand.
My entire family loved this recipe. It's a new favorite.
I think it's funny when a recipe is called "Hawaiian" simply because pineapple has been added to it. The sauce was too strong.
