slow & easy pork bbq

Yield: Serves 8+


  • Preheat oven to 425 then 375 (Can be done in a slow cooker.)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 to 3 ½ lb. pork butt roast
  • 12 oz. Dole Sunshine pineapple juice
  • 2 cups spicy tomato juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. coarse ground pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried red chili flakes (optional to reduce depending upon your palate)


  • In a large heavy pot, coat the pot. Add the pork, pineapple juice, tomato juice, water, salt, pepper and red chili flakes.
  • Cover with doubled foil and a lid. Roast in a preheated 425 oven for 2 hours. Check once or twice to see if you need to add any water. Reduce heat to 375.
  • Check to see if more water is needed (pork should be at least half way covered with liquid). Continue cooking another 2 ½ to 3 hours.
  • You’ll know it’s done when the pork is able to be shredded with a fork.
  • Note: If you have lots of broth remaining once the pork’s done, let the shredded meat hang out in it because it will thicken some and absorb into the meat.
  • Also, if you want to thicken the broth, combine one tablespoon corn starch with one tablespoon of water and blend into the broth.

  2. Ally, I needed “slow ‘n’ easy” this week and your BBQ pork flavor combo sounds wonderful! Your lil’ dill pickle garnishes were another convincing factor 🙂 — as if that first photo with two perfect sunny-side-up eggs weren’t enough. (Remind me to replace my cast iron skillet soon… it’s on “the list.”) Love your inventiveness, and you, xo!!!
