Sweet & Sour Crockpot Pork

Serves: 4-6

5 boneless pork chops
1 T. oil
1 can (15 oz.) crushed pineapple
1/2 c. green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 T. ketchup
1 T. quick-cooking tapioca
3 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Hot, cooked rice

In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oil on both sides. Drain fat. Transfer to crock pot. In a bowl, combine remaining ingredients(except rice); mix well. Pour over pork chops. Cover and cook for 8-10 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high. Serve over rice.

Tips: This was a tasty crock pot meal that didn't take too much work to put together. If tapioca is not something you normal keep on hand consider adding a small box to your pantry. It is nice for thickening stews such as French Beef Stew. I haven't tried tapioca pudding yet but I keep thinking that I should give it a try. I'll let you know how it turns out. I also shared this recipe at Simply Sweet Home's Friday Favorites.

This is a good idea. Thanks for the alternative to tapioca - I don't usually keep it on hand.

Nice crockpot recipe you've got here. It sounds like a Hawiian pork dish, lol, well basically because of the pineapple. I have a similar dish except that I used chicken instead. I bet this one will taste good, too! I'll definitely try this on Sunday. As usual, it's a busy day, so crockpot recipes like these are a life saver on a day like that. :)

Tried this recipe tonight and it is really good. I did not use the Tapioca in mine but used cornstartch instead (the price of a box of The Tapioca did not fit into my budget otherwise I would have tried it) It turned out fine. Will be adding this to my recipe collection!
