Throwback Thursday with Hawaiian Kalua Sliders

Yum
Throwback Thursday calls for a recipe from the past!
This dish is perfect for summer because it won't heat up your kitchen and it won't heat you up standing at the grill.  Grab your slow cooker and prepare for some Hawaiian flavors!


The meat is so tender and flavorful.
I just love how the slow cooker does all the work!



Top with some Hawaiian slaw and crunchy fried onions to create your own at home luau!
Don't be surprised if you husband grabs a grass skirt and begins spinning flaming sticks.  Now that would complete the luau, no?


The Hawaiian Slaw adds a new dimension to the tender pork and the crunchy fried onions takes it over the top.  An explosion of flavors going on!

I bet you're glad it was Throwback Thursday!  I know I am and this is what we are having for dinner...husband in a grass skirt and all!  :)
