My favorite meat, hands down, is chicken. I eat it almost every day. But every once in awhile I just need to mix it up—jump outside my comfort zone and give my not-so-favorite foods a chance to shine. That’s why I picked up a huge chunk of pork shoulder when I was at the grocery store—and because I was dying to use my Crock-Pot.

Neither Jackson nor I had cooked pork shoulder before so we weren’t quite sure what to do with it at first. Then, we remembered the amazing pulled pork sliders we tried at a brewery the week before and that was all the inspiration we needed. We grabbed a jar of teriyaki sauce and a couple cans of pineapple and left the store.

This was seriously one of the easiest things we’ve ever made. We threw the ingredients in the Crock-Pot before work and the sweet teriyaki fumes greeted us when we got home. We barely talked through dinner that night—besides the mmmms and so goods. Now we get excited when we see pork shoulder at the grocery store because we know there’s a delicious Crock-Pot meal to be had.
