If you don’t use your crockpot regularly and are busy like we are I highly recommend you start using it. You can make the ultimate comfort foods with little to no prep time from you.

These slow cooker pork chops come out fork tender every time. Whip up some mashed potatoes and dinner is done. You can even use the drippings, whisk in gravy mix in a small bowl, bubble over medum heat, and top both of them.

I love this 8 or 6 qt. crockpot because it’s just enough for the 5 of us with a bit of leftovers from time to time.

Unlike other slow cooker recipes there is just 1 added step to these crockpot pork chops. You need to brown them in a skillet first.

  • Just 5 minutes or so and they will be done. Then you throw them in with everything else to “simmer”.

Add a touch of olive oil, salt and pepper while they’re getting browned to bring out some more flavor.

  • Layer your apples in the bottom and put your browned pork chops on top of those and then your cooked onions, the rest of your ingredients, and then cook for 4-5 hrs. on low.
