Slow-cooker pineapple Pork Loin is delicious and tender, made with only six ingredients. It’s a great sweet and savory family dinner with a tasty tropical twist. The pineapple juice tenderizes the meat, and you get incredibly juicy and flavorful pork, that is great served with rice or noodles.

Slow Cooker Pork Loin Pineapple is such an amazing meal, budget-friendly, and full of flavor. This recipe is a great combo of sweet and savory with a fun tropical twist from the pineapple. The brown sugar caramelizes and creates a fabulous sauce with the pineapple juice, that you can drizzle all over that pork goodness.

With this recipe, you can serve six people with barely any work. I know, you either love or hate pineapple in savory dishes, I personally love it. I have always loved pineapple with pork. My favorite pork chop meal is this recipe for pineapple pork chops you cook all in one pan. They are easy and delicious. I even love pineapple on my pizza with ham.

I like to sear the meat before slow cooking it, this locks in all the juices, and gives it an extra layer of flavor. This incredibly easy meal is perfect for special occasions, but also easy enough to just make it on a weeknight. You see how simple recipes can be so fancy? This why I test and share, so you can effortlessly cook great meals!

Oh, let me tell you about a dish that’s like a sunny day packed into a meal – slow cooker pineapple pork. It’s like sending your taste buds on a vacation to a tropical island, without even stepping foot outside your door. Imagine yourself chilling on a beach, warm sand beneath you, and a gentle breeze in the air, all while enjoying the heavenly combo of sweet pineapple and succulent pork.

So, last summer, my buddies and I hit the beach to shake off the cobwebs of a super busy year. We were all about kicking back, finding some adventure, and diving into amazing eats. One evening, with the sunset painting the sky, we huddled around this cozy wooden table under a breezy hut, right by the sea. The air was filled with the enticing aroma of slow-cooked pork mingled with the exotic scent of pineapple – our stomachs couldn’t wait.

We piled our plates high with this juicy pork smothered in a dreamy pineapple glaze, and wow, that first bite was magical. It was like a flavor explosion that whisked us straight to culinary heaven. That dish became our beach holiday staple, reminding us of all the fun and laughter with every delicious mouthful.

Ingredients:

2-3 lb pork loin roast
1 onion, all sliced up
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
½ cup of dark brown sugar
¾ cup of apple cider vinegar
½ cup of honey
A splash of soy sauce (¼ cup should do it)
2 tsp of salt
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups of fresh pineapple, diced into happy little chunks
Optional: A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for a bit of spice

Directions:

Start by warming up some olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Brown that pork loin roast on all sides to lock in those tasty juices.

Pop the browned pork into your slow cooker and scatter the sliced onion around it. (Tip: Feel free to give the onions a quick sear too, if you’re feeling fancy.)

Grab a bowl and mix together the apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes (if you’re using them) to make a zesty marinade.

Drizzle that marinade all over the pork and onions in the slow cooker. Make sure every inch of that roast is lovingly coated.

Toss in the pineapple chunks, spreading them around the pork like little bursts of sunshine.

Cover it up and set it to cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours, until the pork is so tender it practically melts.

Optional step: If you like your sauce thick, whisk in a cornstarch slurry near the end of cooking.

Serve this beauty as is with that thickened gravy, or shred it up for some seriously gourmet sandwiches.
