Fruited Pork Chops

Here's one of my favorite slow-cooker recipes. I often prepare these tender chops with pineapple sauce for guests and serve them with brown rice. —Cindy Ragan, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

    Sweet, tangy, simple and delicious. I replaced 1 of the tbsp. of minced onion with a tbsp. of onion soup mix. A definite keeper!

    This was very good and easy. The entire family enjoyed it! I did replace the raisins with craisins because we prefer them.

    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.

    A really flavorful dish - unique flavors that really compliment each other and a fantastic make-ahead dinner.
