2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained

1 cup barbecue sauce

2 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice

1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 boneless pork loin roast (3 to 4 pounds)

In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut roast in half. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown pork roast on all sides.

Place roast in a 5-quart slow cooker. Pour sauce over roast and turn to coat. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until meat is tender. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 12 servings.
