Something Yummy - Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Tacos

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Tacos
gluten free with lb

This is one of the recipes that I made for camping.  I loved that I could make it the week before and then freeze it to take on our camping trip.  We didn't end up eating it until Wednesday night at home and it did not disappoint.  This almost has a sweet and sour type of sauce that is super yummy.  I had the meat on a Taco Shell while Darryl and Josh had it on a bun.  This is one of those meals that you want to make it big, eat it for dinner, and then freeze the rest for a quick meal later.
