This Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops Recipe is a sweet & tangy quick weeknight meal that tastes like steakhouse quality. Serve over rice.
For years once the weather warmed up, I put my crock pot away. But then after many spring nights of having no dinner ready after days at the playground or pool, I realized it was a great option to get dinner ready while I got to play still. These Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops are tender, sweet and the perfect meal that your whole family will love!
This Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops recipe reminds me of something I’d have on a tropical island. We love the tangy and warm pineapple in this dish! And the pork chops come out so tender.
After a long day away there’s nothing better than walking into the house and smelling these pork chops cooking!
Ingredients you will need:
- 4 thick cut Pork Chops
- soy sauce
- brown sugar
- diced pineapple
- 1 can pineapple juice
- corn starch
To get started on making these Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops:
Spray the inside of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Then whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple juice, ketchup, white vinegar, water, garlic and cornstarch.
Do this right in your slow cooker! No need to dirty a bowl.
Add your pork chops and pineapple. Spoon the liquid over the pork chops and set your slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours.
The liquid in your crock pot becomes thick thanks to the corn starch and forms a delicious gravy that is perfect over some white or brown rice.
My kids absolutely love this recipe and ask for it all the time! That is a win for me!
