How to Make Pineapple Balsamic Pork Loin

Place all the ingre­di­ents, except the pork loin, into your crock pot and stir to combine.

Add the pork loin roast into the crock pot, with the fat cap fac­ing up. You can give it a roll or two if you like, to coat it in the sauce, but be sure the fat cap is on top, when you close the slow cook­er. It will help to make the meat ten­der and flavorful.

Set the crock pot on low and let the Pineap­ple Bal­sam­ic Pork Loin cook for 4–6 hours. The pork should reg­is­ter an inter­nal tem­per­a­ture of 145° when it’s done. You want to check at the 4‑hour point and then every 20–30 min­utes after that. Every slow cook­er is dif­fer­ent. As you can see from my pho­tos, I over-cooked mine a lit­tle. It was still fla­vor­ful and deli­cious, but not as juicy as normal.

When you hit an inter­nal tem­per­a­ture of 145°, remove the Pineap­ple Bal­sam­ic Pork Loin from the crock pot and allow it to rest on the plat­ter for five min­utes, before slic­ing. When you slice it, it will still be very light­ly pink, but trust me, it’s per­fect­ly done!

Serve with your favorite sides. We like smashed pota­toes and a green sal­ad with this yum­my pork din­ner. Leave a com­ment and let me know what you served it with.
