One of my fondest pre-Miss Sarah memories is my Hawaiian trip that I took the hubster on. I earned a few when I was a Charter Director with Tupperware and it made for a few great romantic moments. We saw fireworks shot off over the ocean, enjoyed the Polynesian Cultural Center and I loved the luau where we were served Hawaiian Pork.

The zip of the sweet red bell peppers, tang of the pineapple, and tender cut of the pork all make for a tantalizing dish when combined. When I whip this up, I can wrap my lips around a forkful, close my eyes, and take myself back to the islands. When combining this combination and my Instant Pot, there has never been an easier way to make this!
Granted you won’t have pineapple fresh from the Dole pineapple plantation, or pork from a freshly roasted pig, but this made for the best and closest tasting version I have ever tried and am positive you will enjoy it too!
