We found what your Hawaiian luaus have been missing all along, and it’s swineapple. This bacon-wrapped, pork-stuffed pineapple recipe we found on Pinterest delivers just as much cheeky fun as mouthwatering flavor—and is basically a must for your next outdoor get-together. Plus, it’s way easier than staging an entire pig roast.
What You Need:
- 1 whole pineapple
- 6 ounces pork
- Salted dry rub
- 16 ounces regular cut bacon
Step 1: Coat the pork in the dry rub and set aside.
Step 2: Shave the sides of the pineapple and hollow out the center just enough to accommodate the meat.
Step 3: Place the pork inside the pineapple and set aside.
Step 4: Take your bacon and weave the strips together to create one large piece.
Step 5: Wrap the bacon around the stuffed pineapple, using skewers to keep everything in place.
Step 6: Place on roasting rack on a baking sheet and roast at 250°F for 3 to 4 hours, rotating the pineapple halfway through. When fully cooked, the internal temperature should be 160°F. Slice and serve warm.
