Slow Cooker Pork Loin - amazingly tender pork loin stuffed with pineapples and garlic, then slowly cooked on a bed of pineapples and onions topped with a balsamic brown sugar glaze. Easy enough for a midweek meal yet fancy enough for the holidays.
Slice garlic cloves- about 4-5 slices per cloves. Then cut pineapple and slice about 1/4 inch thick each.
Using a small sharp knife, make slits deep enough for the pineapple and garlic slices to fit in.
Place the pineapple and garlic slices in the slit as many as possible.
Line the bottom of the slow cooker with onion and pineapple slices.
Gently place the pork loin on top of the pineapple and onion slices.
Cover slow cooker and cook on LOW for about 5- 6 hours or HIGH for 2-3 hours.
Once the pork is ready , remove from the slow cooker. To serve, carve the pork into slices, serve with the pineapples and onions and a couple spoonfuls of the liquid (once you’ve rendered off the fat).
Prepare glaze about 20 minutes before pork is ready.
Heat a small pan or skillet over medium heat. Add water , brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce in a small pan. Heat over medium heat for about 3- 4 minutes until sauce thickens.
As soon as pork is ready, brush with balsamic glaze. Remove and place pork on serving platter, together with onions and pineapples.
