Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lb pork loin roast
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar substitute (such as erythritol or stevia)
  • ¾ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup honey substitute (such as monk fruit sweetener)
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
  • Optional: A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for a bit of spice

Directions:

  1. Prepare Pork:
    • Warm olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Brown the pork loin roast on all sides to seal in juices.
  2. Transfer to Slow Cooker:
    • Place the browned pork into the slow cooker and scatter the sliced onion around it.
  3. Prepare Marinade:
    • In a bowl, mix together the dark brown sugar substitute, apple cider vinegar, honey substitute, reduced-sodium soy sauce, minced garlic, salt, and optional crushed red pepper flakes to create a marinade.
  4. Coat Pork:
    • Drizzle the marinade over the pork and onions in the slow cooker, ensuring the roast is thoroughly coated.
  5. Add Pineapple:
    • Add the diced pineapple around the pork in the slow cooker.
  6. Cook:
    • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours, until the pork is tender and easily shreds.
  7. Optional Thickening:
    • If desired, whisk in a cornstarch slurry near the end of cooking to thicken the sauce.
  8. Serve:
    • Serve the slow cooker pineapple pork as is with the thickened gravy, or shred it for sandwiches.
