2-3 lb pork loin roast

1 sliced onion

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ cup dark brown sugar

¾ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup honey

¼ cup soy sauce

2 tsp salt

3 minced garlic cloves

2 cups fresh pineapple chunks

Optional: 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes


Brown the pork loin roast in olive oil in a skillet.

Transfer the roast to a slow cooker, surrounding it with sliced onion.

Mix apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes (if used) to create a marinade.

Pour this marinade over the pork and onions in the slow cooker.

Add pineapple chunks around the roast.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours until pork is tender.

Optional: Thicken the sauce with a cornstarch slurry if desired.
