Saucilicious Slow Cooker Pork Chops



Do you ever feel like there just aren't enough hours in the day to squeeze in all you have to do, plus prepare, cook, and lovingly present a home-cooked meal to your family? While I can't add sand to the hourglass of your day, I can share a secret weapon recipe you need in your recipe box (aka: foodie pinboard)! Pin, then jot these 6 ingredients on your next shopping list ... your taste buds & your family will thank you later! 

This meal is fancy enough for a Sunday dinner, yet simple enough to enjoy any day of the week!








SAUCILICIOUS SLOW COOKER PORK CHOPS


The "Meat & Potatoes" of the Meal:
4 Pork Chops
Baby Carrots 
Approximately 3-5 Red Potatoes, depending on size (Russets work fine too ;))

Sauce:
1/4 cup Ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup 

Steps to Creating a Maximum Flavor Meal with Minimal Effort:
Cut potatoes in quarters.
Place potatoes and baby carrots in slow cooker.
Add the pork chops on top of veggies.
Mix the sauce ingredients, pour and spread evenly over pork chops.
Cook on low for 8 hours.

Recipe Source:  My mom (aka: the Cookbook Queen) shared a recipe from one of her Taste of Home cookbooks years ago.  We barely adapted it, basically added veggies to create an all-in-one, entree AND sides, meal.  Gotta love that! ;)



























Oh so easy!  Oh so good!  ... ENJOY!

  23. I was so disappointed with this recipe. It smelled wonderful, but the pork chops were dry, the sauce was bland, and not even a mountain of barbecue sauce could fix it. I apologized at length to my family for serving it, and promised to never make it again.

    1. My guess is that you cooked it too long or at a higher temp. Overcooking does result in dryness. As you can see in the photo above they should not come out dry. I'm surprised to hear you found the sauce to be bland. Best wishes in finding a recipe that better suits your taste.

  24. Looks great! I added in fresh garlic and some diced onion! Yum :) Thanks for the time saving recipe
