Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Crock Pot Pineapple Pork
This pineapple pork is another one of those ridiculously easy crock pot recipes that you can put together in a few minutes and then forget about for hours.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love loading up the slow cooker and then letting it do it’s thing, so that I can do my thing until dinnertime?
You don’t need anything fancy to make this crock pot pineapple pork recipe either.
With a package of boneless pork ribs in the freezer and can of pineapple tidbits in the pantry, I was able to toss it together without making a special trip to the grocery store.
The Skinny on Crock Pot Pineapple Pork
Most pineapple pork recipes take you in the sweet and sour direction.
This one is simpler. And less sweet. The pork turned out moist and fork-tender.
Rod thought the sauce was fine without further seasoning.
I thought it was a little bland, but nothing a little extra Dijon mustard stirred in at the table couldn’t fix.
According to my calculations, each serving (3 ounces of pork with 3 tablespoons sauce) has about 232 calories, *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus and *7 WW SmartPoints.
Under WW new program for 2018, this is now *4 Freestyle SmartPoints.
