Juicy, succulent, and bursting with flavor, this easy weeknight dinner will transport you straight to the tropics!
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:
- Preheat your oven to 400º
- Cube your pork tenderloin and pour Soyaki over it to marinate
- Chop broccoli into florets and roast for 20 minutes
- Cook rice by boiling water then simmering
- Cook pork in large skillet and let caramelize before adding pineapple and sauce
- Assemble bowls by layering rice, broccoli, pork and pineapple!

5 Ingredient Pineapple Pork Bowls
- 1 pork tenderloin about 1 lb.
- 1 Cup soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s
- 1 Head broccoli
- 1 Tbsp avocado or olive oil
- 1/2 Tsp salt and pepper 1/2 tsp. Each
- 1 Cup Fresh pineapple cubed
- 1 Cup jasmine rice
- 2 Cups water
- pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cube pork tenderloin into 1” pieces and place into a medium bowl. Cover pork with soyaki sauce and place into refrigerator for at least 30 mins, up to a few hours.
- Chop broccoli head into florets and place onto sheet pan lined with foil. Drizzle on oil and toss with hands. Season with salt and pepper then roast for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the rice by rinsing well then adding to a medium saucepan. Add 2 cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 20 minutes or until liquid has absorbed.
- To cook the pork, heat a large skillet over medium high heat, then add the pork, shaking off extra marinade.
- Let pork cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes to help caramelize, then toss and cook another 3-4 minutes. Add in cubed pineapple and remaining marinade to pan. Cook 1-2 more minutes.
- Assemble bowls by adding a scoop of rice, followed by roasted broccoli, then the pork and pineapple topped with a drizzle of sauce from pan. Enjoy!
