  1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season pork chops evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper; cook in the hot skillet until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer chops to a plate, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  3. Heat remaining teaspoon olive oil in the retained drippings; add onions and season with remaining salt. Saute onions until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  4. Spread about half the cooked onions and half the sliced apricots into the bottom of a slow cooker crock. Lay pork chops atop the onion and apricots. Layer remaining onion and apricots over the pork chops; add pineapple juice, ginger, thyme, and cinnamon stick.
  5. Cook on Low until the pork is fork-tender, 6 to 8 hours (or on High for 3 to 4 hours). Remove and discard cinnamon stick. Sprinkle cilantro over the mixture.

I used pork tenderloin that I had in the freezer. Turned out a "winner..." in our family. A little sweet. Next time I will use less pineappple juice.

I made the dish for a birthday dinner and everyone raved about, Sweet ,Tender and Savory. I will definitely will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

I liked this, but halved the amounts of everything for 2 pork chops. This included halving a 6-in. cinnamon stick. I cooked it on High for 3 hrs, but lowered it to Low for the last half-hour. Ou...
