Fruited Pork Chops Recipe

Here's one of my favorite slow-cooker recipes. I often prepare these tender chops with pineapple sauce for guests. I like to serve them with brown rice. —Cindy Ragan of North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 6-1/4 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (5 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 3/4 cup DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, oregano, salt, garlic powder and pepper; add the pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. In a nonstick skillet, brown chops in oil on both sides. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker.

"Brown sugar, pineapple juice and raisins? You call this diabetic friendly? I am diabetic and my blood sugar would spike dangerously if I ate this!"

"I didn't really like this recipe. I thought that it lacked flavor. I salvaged this by making the Savory Beer Porkchops recipe."
