Sweet & Sour Pork Loin (Crockpot)

Okay, so I was experimenting yesterday. I had this pork loin (two, really, the other has yet to be cooked), and I needed to do something with it and I wanted it to be easy. So I made this up, and it was REALLY yummy. I had originally wanted to do pulled pork in barbecue sauce, but didn't have any barbecue sauce. And I didn't feel like adding brown sugar. So I based this off of a recipe for meatballs that used ketchup and beer, and went from there. I think next time I'll probably add bell peppers to it, and maybe a little bit of heat, too.

Oh, and I found that eating 1/3 of the pork, for 6 points, made me feel REALLY indulgent, and yet didn't break the bank. Which was way cool.

Sweet &Sour Pork (Crockpot)
6 servings
(WW estimated POINTS per serving = 3)


12 oz center loin pork, lean only
1 cup ketchup
1 can or bottle light beer
1 medium onion(s)
1 cup canned pineapple, packed in juice


Combine all ingredients except pork in crockpot -- whisk to combine. Add pork. Cook on low all day.

This works really well served with 1c cooked soba noodles.
