Pineapple Pork Tenderlon

  • 3 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 16 ounces canned pineapple

Combine meat, sugar, spices, and cornstarch in a plastic zipper bag. Seal and shake well to coat. Pour the contents of the bag into the Crock Pot. Add the garlic and peppers. Pour in the soy sauce, apple juice, and pineapple. (The key with softer veggies like peppers are to put them on top of the meat so they aren't simmering in liquid all day, or add later on in the process.)

Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours, or on high for 4-6. Serve with rice.
