This is a dinner I made the other night for “the boys,” something quick to put in the crock pot. It simmers for a while and the pork chops come out tender enough to cut with your fork! I just served it with some boiled potatoes (cooked in chicken broth and minced garlic) and some veggies!
Here are the ingredients I used. I doubled up on pork chops so that I would also have a portion to freeze for another meal another day if I was in a hurry!
I started out by browning the pork chops in the frying pan with a little bit of vegetable oil. Just browned, not cooking them through.
I mixed the remaining ingredients, except for the bacon bits in a large measuring cup.
I layered the pork chops in the bowl of the crock pot, sprinkling cooked bacon pieces as I was going (and yes, I cheated, I used precooked bacon pieces)
And poured the contents of the measuring cup over top of all of it.
And cooked it on low for 6 hours. This is how they looked in the crock pot when they were done. You can see a gravy of sorts formed from the liquid mixture I added.
I actually give Chris 3 pork chops on his plate for dinner and he ended up eating all three of them! This is a great recipe!
