On lazy nights, it’s easy to get stuck in the “pasta rut,” as I like to call it. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a nice, hearty plate of pasta; however, sometimes I’m just craving something a bit brighter. Enter: my 5 Ingredient Pineapple Pork Bowls. Ready in minutes and vibrantly flavorful, this tropical bowl is sure to take your lazy weeknight dinners up a notch.

I love this simple, family-friendly meal that’s bursting with flavor thanks to juicy pork tenderloin and sour-sweet pineapple. Roasted broccoli adds a nice crispness and fluffy jasmine rice makes the meal heartier. For my GF friends, swap the Soyaki for tamari + fresh minced ginger + minced garlic. Hope you love!

Here’s how you’ll make my 5 Ingredient Pineapple Pork Bowls:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400º
  2. Cube your pork tenderloin and pour Soyaki over it to marinate
  3. Chop broccoli into florets and roast for 20 minutes
  4. Cook rice by boiling water then simmering
  5. Cook pork in large skillet and let caramelize before adding pineapple and sauce
  6. Assemble bowls by layering rice, broccoli, pork and pineapple!
