Aloha Pork Chops

Everybody Hula! Straight from the 1001 Slow Cooker Recipes cookbook here's a good dish for you. Pork can be a good lean meat, and the pepper, onion, pineapple, and papaya give you some great fruits and veggies in one meal.

 I'm not sure of the nutritional breakdown of this meal, but I looked at and entered it in. For a serving with a 4 oz piece of meat with it guesstimates about 300 calories (before rice and carrots).

Aloha Pork Chops
Serves 6-8

1 Green Bell Pepper, seeded and julienned
1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and julienned
1 Onion, sliced
6-8 (1/2 inch thick) boneless Pork Chops
1 can (15 oz.) Pineapple Chunks with juice
1 T. Mustard
2 T. White Wine Vinegar
1 T. Brown Sugar
1 Papaya, peeled, seeded, and sliced
Macadamia nuts, chopped, optional

Place bell peppers and onions in sprayed slow cooker and place pork chops on top.

Combine juice from pineapple, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar and 1/2 t. salt in bowl. Mix and pour over chops. Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours.

Place pork chops on serving plate and keep warm. Increase heat to high and stir in pineapple chunks and papaya. Cook additional 10 minutes. Pour over pork chops and sprinkle with macadamia nuts.

Serves great over rice!

This one has a great flavor with the papaya and pineapple and peppers. The fruit and veggie blend gives it a unique taste. Try it out!
