  1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season pork chops evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper; cook in the hot skillet until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer chops to a plate, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  3. Heat remaining teaspoon olive oil in the retained drippings; add onions and season with remaining salt. Saute onions until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  4. Spread about half the cooked onions and half the sliced apricots into the bottom of a slow cooker crock. Lie pork chops atop the onion and apricots. Layer remaining onion and apricots over the pork chops; add pineapple juice, ginger, thyme, and cinnamon stick.
  5. Cook on Low until the pork is fork-tender, 6 to 8 hours (or on High for 3 to 4 hours). Remove and discard cinnamon stick. Sprinkle cilantro over the mixture.

Didn't have pineapple juice so used white wine. Plus I cooked it in the pressure cooker for 11 min. Then sprinkled the dish with parsley as none of us like cilantro

I used pork tenderloin that I had in the freezer. Turned out a "winner..." in our family. A little sweet. Next time I will use less pineappple juice.
