Hawaiian Pork Loin

Pork and pineapple. Great combination!

For this you will need:

1-1/2 lbs pork loin
1 can pineapple rings, juices reserved
1 (16 oz.) bottle barbecue sauce
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 tbs minced garlic
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 450°.

Place pork loin on a cutting board and make a series of small, parallel incisions along the length of meat.

Transfer to a baking dish and fill each incision with 1/2 pineapple ring.

Pour barbecue sauce and 1/2 reserved pineapple juice into a medium bowl, then stir in red bell pepper, garlic, and red onion.

Pour sauce over pork loin, then place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, then lower heat to 350° and cook for another 35 minutes, or until pork is cooked through. Internal temperature should be between 150-160° F.

Remove from oven, and top with green onion if preferred.
