Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
- 1 packet teriyaki marinade (recommended: McCormick Grill Mates)
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 3 1/2 pounds pork shoulder
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup chili sauce
- 1 (6-ounce) can pineapple juice
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 8 hamburger rolls
- 2 tablespoon canola oil

In small bowl, combine teriyaki mix, paprika and pepper.
Coat the pork the with rub mixture, patting until all rub is used. Set aside.
In a bowl whisk together the chicken broth, brown sugar, soy sauce, chili sauce and pineapple juice. Set aside.
Put the chopped onions and carrots in a 5-quart slow cooker. Place the pork on top of the carrots and onions and pour half of the pineapple juice mixture over pork. Reserve remainder for Hawaiian sauce. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. The meat should fall apart easily. Remove the roast from the slow cooker to a cutting board. Using 2 forks carefully pull the meat into shreds. Serve the pork on rolls drizzled with the Hawaiian sauce or on the side for dipping. Reserve the remaining pulled pork for the Round 2 Recipes, Pulled Pork Pot Stickers and Hawaiian Pizza.
In a medium pot heat the oil over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and saute until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining pineapple juice mixture, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside..

- 1 red pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken boneless thighs about four thighs

Put the vinegar, sugar, reserved pineapple juice and cornstarch slurry into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Reserve half of the sauce in a small serving bowl to be used as a dipping sauce alongside the skewers.
Quarter the red pepper and remove the core and seeds. Slice each quarter into 6 pieces. Cut each chicken thigh into 6 pieces.
Preheat a grill pan or an outdoor grill to medium heat.
