1 (3 pound)
boneless pork roast
ground black pepper
1 (20 ounce) can
pineapple chunks, undrained
1 1/2 cups
chopped dried cranberries
This was a really great idea. I didnt use the Craisins. What I did was take a can of whole cranberry sauce and mashed with with a potato masher, mixed it with the pinapple and then poured it over the pork. It was excellent. The can of cranberry sauce is alot cheaper too and I think the craisins wouldnt have been as much flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
Folks- really? Why review a recipe you didn't actually make according to the ingredients and directions provided - and decided to just make up your own recipe? Jeesh. However - I agree this is a good "starter"- something you can tweak to make your own. But if you're adding ten different ingredients, it's not Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast, it's Your Teriyaki Onion Ginger Peppered Pineapple Pork Roast!!!!
Excellent! I made a number of changes though. Used pineapple tidbits. Reduced the cranberries to about half. Reduced the seasoned salt to just a pinch. Added half a large onion, chopped. Added half a cup of teriyaki marinade. Added about a tablespoon of dried minced garlic. Added about a quarter teaspoon of dried thyme. And a pinch each of cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Served over rice. I will definitely be making this again.
I really liked this recipe and so did my family and my guests. I did use a variation. I read all of the reviews and went from there. I chopped a yellow onion and put that on the bottom of the crock pot, put thyme, pepper and rosemary on a 3 lb pork tenderloin and then topped it with terriyaki sauce. I put in a generous amount and then added the pineapple and cranberries. I did not use salt since I was using terriyaki and that is salty. It was great - moist and had lots of nice flavor. The best thing was that it was very, very easy!
I give this a guarded 4 stars because I would not use a roast for this recipe again. I will, however, use this recipe again for pork chops, small pork loin, or chicken breasts instead.
The rest of the recipe is great - a nice, light fruit flavor (I used spicy seasoning salt)....but there is not enough liquid to cover the entire roast - so if you do use a roast - turn it over halfway through, so the top half doesn't dry out.
Again - a very nice flavor. If you are looking for more spice - you might have to add a splash of teryaki or soy sauce.
Great way to get fruit into a meal!
It was really, really good. I did not have dried cranberries so I used a can of whole cranberries juice and all. I also added one sweet onion. Next time I will also put green peppers in it and serve it over rice.
I did this a little differently. I pierced the meat and sprinkled it with season salt, garlic powder, black pepper and onion powder. I then put meat on top of sliced onions in a roaster and poured the cranberry/pineapple mixture over it. I used whole cranberry sauce. I baked covered at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or till the temp was 155 then let sit for 15 mins before slicing. Delish! Tender and great with mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans.
Great recipe! If you, like me, don't have enough pineapple follow recommendations of others: add teriyaki marinade/sauce. I also added onions (on the bottom---I love the flavor they add).
We will do this one again and again! Yummy.
