Hawaiian Pulled Pork Tacos + Pineapple Slaw

Hawaiian Pulled Pork Tacos with Pineapple Slaw brings the beach vibe at home , perfect for Summer dinners.

It is sizzling hot these days! If I could have my way, you’d find me at the beach sipping some Pineapple Smoothie or a virgin Piñacolada. But, as you all know, I am very much pregnant and as much as possible I try to avoid too much traveling. All I can do is bring the beach vibe to me here at home.

If there’s one food I can think of that reminds me of Summer and the beach — it will always be pineapples. Pineapples add a refreshing layer of flavor to food and as a drink, it takes away the heat and cools you down.

I thought of making Hawaiian Pulled Pork Tacos with Pineapple Slaw because it’s something that won’t keep you in the kitchen for long. With the high temperature each day, who would want to slave in the kitchen? We all want something you can leave in the oven and cook by itself with minimal supervision.

Plus it has pineapples! Thanks to Dole Philippines for sending over lots of Dole products last week, I have all the pineapples I want to satisfy my cravings plus more to experiment with!

I used Dole 100% Pineapple Juice in making my Hawaiian Pulled Pork. What I love about Dole Pineapple Juice is that it has no sugar added, you get 100% natural fruit that is rich in Vitamin C. It keeps the meat juicy too!

For the Pineapple Slaw, I used Dole Pineapple Tidbits which has just the right size for this refreshing side dish. It’s not too sweet because it is canned with extra light syrup so I get that sweet-sour pineapple taste!

Look at how juicy my Hawaiian Pulled Pork turned out! Aloha!

This recipe is great  for Summer dinners, movie nights, or just when you’re hanging out with a group of friends.

  4. Ooh I love tacos, and yours really give off a beachy vibe! Reminds me to cook that pack of tortilla sitting in my freezer for months now haha

  5. I’m so sure that this one tastes good – pineapple always works like magic in any dish. This is perfect for afternoon get-together(s) with friends.

  6. Anything that is a fruit converted to juice reminds me of summer. Pineapple in food spoils fast especially that it’s warmer now, but still an enjoyable drink for me. I also buy their products. I choose pineapple drink instead of coke too…

  7. We always order pulled pork whenever we see one on the menu. You are so pro, you can prepare this kind of dish. And I love pineapple juice in this summer heat!

  8. Those sound delicious. What a great summer time meal idea. I am sure my family would love these.

  9. This recipe looks absolutely delicious. We love BBQ pulled pork, but I am always trying to find some new recipes that involve pork. Pinning for a delicious meal this summer!

  10. I just pinned this to my Recipes I would like to try board. It looks so good, I am definitely gonna try this next week for dinner.

  11. yum. this looks good! I love pineapple with pork. I will be trying this for sure.

  12. This looks like a delicious recipe! Have you tried slow cooking it in a crock pot too? We typically make mango salsa with our pork tacos, but I would like to try this recipe with pineapple.

  13. This is great because the pork absorbs the natural sweetness of the pineapple juice without added sugar. You are really creative when it comes to making food! 🙂

  14. This looks so delicious. I am sure my family would love it. I will have to make some on the weekend.

  15. I love pulled pork. I have not tried it on a taco before. I will have to try it this weekend.

  16. I’d love to try that slaw. Slaw’s one of my faves and I’ve never had it like this here.

  17. We just cooked with pineapple juice actually! It was really good. I should use the remaining juice for this recipe. Looks yummy!

  18. What an interesting dish. Never seen anything like this before. Would love to make this sometime.

  19. Oh my goodness! This looks amazing. I just pulled a pork shoulder out of the oven. I didn’t cook it with pineapple juice, but I’ve got some Dole pineapple in the cupboard and it’s headed for some slaw and tacos! Thanks for the recipe!!

  20. Wow! That looks absolutely amazing, I know my husband and kids would just love this. I’m definitely pinning this for later!

  21. I had pulled pork at a nearby BBQ restaurant a few weeks ago and it was good I wanted so bad to recreate here at home, but haven’t found the recipe that I like yet. I think this is it. 🙂

  22. Great Idea! We do a pineapple mango salsa we put on fish and chicken a lot, doing a slaw with tacos is a little stroke of genius. I’m with you, to me, nothing says summer like pineapple, it’s such a great flavor that can add to almost any dish, sweet or savory.

  23. Scrumptious tacos! Pineapple slaw? Is it like coleslaw, but pineapple? Hihihi. That’s a really dazzling dish Mommy! Belated Happy Mother’s Day! =)
