Crock Pot Hawaiian Pork Chops

These Crockpot Hawaiian Pork Chops are a quick and easy dinner idea that tastes great!

I learned two things this past week thanks to this Crock Pot Hawaiian Pork Chops recipe. One, if I buy a six pack of canned pineapple, my four-year-old will power through most of that if I let her, and two, overcooked pork chops are oh so dry.

Make these chops, but don’t over cook em, and buy extra pineapple. It makes a tasty snack.

Notes
Linda
We really liked pork chops fixed this way. They stayed so moist and tender, and the sweet potatoes were the perfect accompaniment to them.

Sarah
I loved how easy this recipe was to put together. The potatoes were very tasty and had great flavor. We liked our pork chops too and thought the meal came together well. I cooked this on low for 5 hours and enjoyed how moist the meat stayed.

Kim
What I learned is that this one isn't the best work day recipe. My meal most certainly suffered from over cooking. I put this on low for 8 hours plus warm for 2, and the chops were a tad dried out. The flavor was good enough that I'd probably be willing to try this again on a Sunday. Though I've seem other Hawaiian pork chop recipes that incorporate some more Asian flavors like vinegar and soy sauce along with the sweet, which I think I might like better.

Me
If you like pineapple with pork, this is a winner. My family loves pineapple and loves pork, but for some reason, not together. Like Kim, I overcooked mine, and it was a bit dry. This was a solid recipe, but not our favorite.

I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make these Crock Pot Hawaiian Pork Chops.

  1. I love pork chops. I don’t think I’ve ever made them in the crock pot, though! I don’t know if my family will like them with pineapple, but I need to find out! Yum!! Pinning this right now!! –Lisa

    1. It doesn’t make a huge amount of food, so if they don’t like it you are stuck with tons of leftovers. I hope they dig it!
