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

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 unsweetened 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. Combine flour, oregano, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a shallow dish; coat chops, 1 at a time. In a nonstick skillet, brown the chops in olive oil on both sides. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a bowl, combine the 3/4 cup pineapple juice with reserved pineapple juice. Stir in the water, brown sugar, onion and tomato paste; pour over chops. Sprinkle with raisins.
  3. Cover and cook on low until meat is tender, 4-5 hours. Stir in pineapple chunks. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer or until heated through.
