Now that the kiddos are back in school, my family is in the process of getting back to our routine. We try to eat dinner together every night as a family. With school, jobs, homework and our busy schedules, it’s often difficult to prepare a meal and eat at a reasonable time. With my husband on active duty in the military, he is often not available in the afternoons or evenings to help run kids to activities, which means that I have even less time to prepare dinner. Thank goodness for the slow cooker! This slow cooker Hawaiian barbeque pork is one of my family’s favorites. How do I know? Because everyone goes back for seconds every time.
Like most families these days, we’re busy, busy, busy now that the kids are back in school and after-school activities have started up. I’m buckling down and getting my family back into our routine, which is built around eating dinner together every night. Since part of my job as a mom is to make sure we have healthy and budget-friendly meals, most of our meals are home cooked. When the family routine gets busy, the slow cooker makes preparing a fresh dinner possible.
I grew up in Hawai’i and love Hawaiian food. My neighbor in Hawai’i, Greg, gave me his recipe for Hawaiian barbeque sauce. He makes his barbeque on the grill and it’s amazing. I’ve adapted his sauce recipe to use in the slow cooker and it’s still amazing. Better yet, it has the added benefit of being easy to make for a busy mama with a busy schedule.
