This delicious sweet and savory dish is sure to become a new family favorite. Here, fresh pineapple and spicy jalapeno are paired with toasted sesame oil, five-spice powder, creamy peanut butter, and fresh cilantro for a rich and flavorful combination.
As written, this recipe contains a couple of extra steps you can skip if you are short on time. To make this a truly one-pot meal, simply place the well-trimmed and seasoned pork butt roast directly into your slow cooker without searing. In addition, the juices can be thickened right in the slow cooker crock by stirring in the arrowroot slurry with the other ingredients 30 minutes before it is done cooking.
Important Tip: Trim as much excess fat as possible from the pork butt roast prior to cooking. This will greatly reduce the amount of fat that ends up in the very flavorful juices/sauce.
