Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. To the slow cooker, add the pork chops and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, tomato sauce, brown sugar and minced garlic with ¼ cup of pineapple juice from the can. Pour over the pork chops in the slow cooker. Place the pineapple slices around and on top of the pork chops. Discard the remaining pineapple juice.
  3. Set slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours. With 30 minutes left in the cooking cycle, whisk in the cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
  4. TIP: In a small bowl, whisk together the 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 1 Tbsp of warm water then pour into the sauce. This will prevent the cornstarch from clumping in the sauce.
  5. Prepare salad. Warm dinner rolls.
  6. Serve Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops with rolls and salad.
