Polynesian Pork Roast

Polynesian Pork Roast

I discovered this recipe while researching Hawaiian foods. It fit into the island theme I felt like cooking a few months back. This recipe makes quite a bit of food, so when I made it I had plenty leftover to freeze for another night. This recipe for Polynesian Pork Roast cooks in the crock pot and is a good one to make on a Sunday to re-heat on a busy school night. Be sure to serve this with rice, either regular or for an added treat try making sticky rice.
