Instructions

  1. In a small bowl add the yellow onion, diced jalapeno, soy sauce, brown sugar and pineapple chunks and stir to combine.
  2. Put the pork in the slow cooker, fat cap side up.
  3. Pour over the pineapple-jalapeno mixture.
  4. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

  5. If you'd like to reserve the liquids at the end remove the pork and pineapple pieces then drain the liquid into a glass measuring cup.
  6. Let the fat settle to the top and spoon it off or let it chill in a refrigerator and then just scrape it off the top.
  7. If you'd like this pork to taste like crispy carnitas you can crisp it up in a pan with a spoonful of the fat on medium high heat, or just spread it onto a sheet pan and put under the broiler for 45-60 seconds.
