A little bit of a Hawaiian flair! I'm not too keen on cilantro, so I leave it out ... but it's listed here, as it is a part of the original recipe. Cook's choice! :o)

Weight Watchers calculates this to be 3 Points per serving [1-skewer per person], on the Momentum Plan. Added rice and side dishes will be extra points.

How to Make Pork Pineapple Skewers

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix pork cubes and 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch in a large bowl. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned, 3 - 4 minutes.
  2. Drain pineapple in both cans. Reserve the juice from one can for this recipe; refrigerate juice from second can for another use. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch, pineapple and reserved juice, onion, bell pepper, ketchup, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in 5- or 6-quart slow-cooker. Stir in browned pork. Cover and cook until pork is fork-tender, 4 - 5 hours on high, or 8 - 10 hours on low.
  3. At the end of the cooking time, stir cilantro into the slow cooker. Thread pork and pineapple chunks evenly onto 8 (12") wooden skewers. Serve with sauce.
  4. Weight Watchers calculates this as 3 Points. If you desire to add a 1/2 cup of brown rice to each serving, add 2 Points per serving.
