If you need a great recipe for your fall football tailgates or a delish meal for any night of the week that is easy to prepare without sacrificing on taste, you’ll love these Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sliders! They are SO good! These sliders give you real flavor, real fast and are something the whole family will enjoy! Sliders are one of our favorite things to make on football Saturdays! They’re just so good! So, when I was asked to make a recipe with Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork, I knew sliders were going to be perfect – especially when I saw the Smithfield Marinated Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet. YUM!!!! We picked up our Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork at WinCo (and from now until 10/15, while supplies last, you can get a coupon on WinCo’s website to use)! There are other tasty options too like Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet, Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin, and Smithfield Marinated Hardwood Smoked Bacon & Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin! I’m sure they’d all cook up fabulously, but the Applewood Smoked Bacon just sounded especially amazing! And what’s great is that because the pork is already marinated, you don’t need to do much of anything to it! The prep is already done for you, so you can have a super delicious dish in a hurry! Their motto is “Real Flavor, Real Fast”, and I have to agree! This was SO good. I bet it would be DELICIOUS on the grill too! But, we decided to go the slow cooker route and it made beautiful pulled pork! I love using the slow cooker because you can just dump your ingredients in and go about your day – go to work, run errands, school pickups, have fun watching football – whatever it is. Then, dinner is made in what seems like no time. For this recipe, you don’t even need 10 minutes of total prep time before and after! It doesn’t get any easier than that! You’ll just dump in your Smithfield Marinated 100% Fresh Pork and two other ingredients. After slow cooking & shredding the pork, put it on delicious Hawaiian rolls with some Hawaiian BBQ sauce and you have some REALLY fabulous sliders! Serve it up the sliders with a tasty side salad, like our broccoli cranberry salad, tropical ambrosia, or marinated vegetable salad, and you have a delicious, complete meal! So good! Here’s the easy recipe:
Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sliders
- Smithfield Marinated Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet 1.5 - 2 pounds
- 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple in 100% juice
- 1 small sweet onion thinly sliced/diced
- Hawaiian sweet rolls
- Hawaiian BBQ sauce
- In a large slow cooker, put in half the onions and pineapple. Place the marinated pork loin filet on top. Cover pork with remaining pineapple and onion.
- Cook on low for approximately 6 hours or high for approximately 4 hours (until pork is fork tender).
- Once done, use two forks to shred the pork filet right in the crock pot. The pineapple and onions should combine well with the pork as you shred.
- Place a generous amount of pulled pork on each Hawaiian roll, top with desired amount of Hawaiian BBQ sauce, and serve!
SO good! The smell while this is cooking is amazing! All the flavors of the Applewood smoked bacon really come out – YUM! So, I definitely recommend giving this recipe a try for your next weekend tailgate party or even just to add to the weeknight menu rotation! It’s one meal the whole family will enjoy!

What Real Flavor, Real Fast recipe will you want to try first?
I live in the AZ desert as well, boy is it hot right now!!! To “think cool” I’m planning my Christmas party. It is going to be a Hawaiian theme, and I would love to try your Hawaiian BBQ pork. Did you find the loin shredded well. My experience is that the loin does not shred well what is your experience?
My pork loin was 2.5 lbs. needed 6 hrs on high. Way too much liquid in the crockpot to shred inside the pot. Would have been too soupy to put on rolls Good taste tho.
Glad you liked the taste. Not sure what happened with the liquid. We had no problem shredding in the crockpot and putting it on the rolls!
I have never bought the flavored pork tenderloin so I didn’t know what to expect. The pork had a good flavor, mine was closer to 6 hrs on high and also had a lot of liquid. No worries though, we just used tongs to get the meat. It was a hit with the family and will make it again.
