Pulled Pineapple Pork in the Vitaclay Slowcooker, Plus a Giveaway!

This was my first experience using the Vitaclay Slowcooker, and I was a little skeptical about how it would work out. The company claims to cook in less than half the time as traditional slow cookers, but still yield a tender, juicy, delicious meals. I decided to make a simple pasture raised pork with garlic and pineapples. I was blown away at how easy it was to work with the Vitaclay, and how amazing my meal turned out. I’m excited to try making a chili next!

According to Vitaclay:

“We created VitaClay because we are committed to whole, real, non-toxic living in every aspect of life. One big aspect, especially for the real food community, is cooking at home. It can be difficult (and expensive) to find non-toxic cooking options! And we want to make cooking traditionally as easy and affordable as possible. Our clay pots are tested and verified free of any toxic contaminants, including heavy metals and chemicals. Our pots are non-stick, but not because we added any chemical non-stick coatings! We use a proprietary high-temperature water glazing process that strengthens the clay and gives it a non-stick, chemical free surface. Our pots are a great alternative to aluminum chemical-coated pots and pans, as well as low-grade stainless steel pots widely available today. 

I don’t know if you’ve ever cooked with clay before, but once you try it you will never go back! The taste! The texture! The nutrients! You won’t believe your mouth. Our electronic housing unit makes it easy and safe to cook while you’re not in the kitchen-you could be asleep or not in the house at all. Our newest models have special settings for yogurt as well!” 

Clay is the most traditional cooking material there is, and we believe it as also the best cooking material!”

I’m sharing this recipe today, and also excited about giving away a Vitaclay Slowcooker to a lucky winner!




1 pasture raised pork shoulder (approx 2-3lbs)

1 can of Native Forest organic pineapple chunks (juice including)

2 TBS apple cider vinegar

3-5 cloves of garlic chopped

1/4 cup of chicken stock or water

Sea salt, smoked paprika, and black pepper to taste



Place everything in the clay slow cooker, cover, and cook for approximately 3 hours.


Enjoy! (yes, it really is as simple as that). Clean up was a breeze as well! No sticking!

  1. I’m thinking maybe this device would be great for a lamb biryani. You have to cook that slow and long I find.

  2. Our family is so busy and use our crockpot constantly – the first thing that would probably get made if I won this should be our favorite venison stew

  3. I would love to try to make yogurt in this! It would be nice to cook everything in in. My crockpot is old and hanging on by a thread!

  4. Debbie Clauer says:

    I would make black beans, rice & veggies.

  5. You had me at “cutting the cooking time of a crockpot.” With my husband in the midst of hitting season, this would be put to good use! Yogurt too? That would greatly limit having to stand and constantly monitor the temperature as I do when slowly heating on the stove top! But my first would be garlic and rosemary chicken!

  6. I’d love to cook soup all winter!

  7. I have never used the Vitaclay but have heard it’s awesome! Hope to win it:)

  8. I’d make a stew.

  9. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I would make chili.

  10. I have read that you can make homemade yogurt in a VitaClay, so I’d start off with that. Endless possibilities!!

  11. Kim Campbell says:

    Wow! I think I would stat with this recipe first. I have always wanted to try one of these!

  12. Charles-Linda Bradshaw says:

    I would love to try the pork recipe you mentioned above. It sounds really good. I have only had it one time and it was different and not good. This one sounds good though.

  13. Out with the toxic, in with the clay! I’d love to make chile verde with pork, yum!

  14. Chicken

  15. Kristie Cardullo says:

    I would try making yogurt for the first time slow cooker style.

  16. Megan Guzman says:

    I would try exactly what you made here! It looks delicious!

  17. Wondering who won? Thanks
