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.
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.

Thanks, Julie. Hope you like it!!
This recipe was not very good. I ended up throwing away the sauce & pineapple, and using the pork for something else.
Hi Carole, sorry to see that you didn't like this recipe. Everyone's tastes are different!!
Could you substitute boneless pork chops?
Yes, Shannon this should work fine with boneless pork chops.

Adding ginger and apple cider vinegar made your recipe great. Gave it just the right kick in flavor town. Thanks
for those of us that don't eat pork Could we sub Chicken (proably thighs) or turkey tenderloin?
Yes, I think this would be great with either chicken thighs or turkey tenderloins. ~Martha
