I've never been to Hawaii so I decided to bring Hawaii to me! Slow roasted pork loin, simmered for six hours in a spicy pineapple ginger marinade. I'd forgotten how deliciously juicy pork loin can be, and this loin certainly was packed full of island flavor.

With this recipe, you can (sort of) roast your own pig and have a little luau in your very own kitchen. I used my slow cooker set on low to cook my loins. The marinade was super sweet and super spicy, which is by far my favorite flavor combo.

Maybe one day I'll make it out to those islands in the Pacific, but until then, I'll just have to cook my dreams into reality.
