I love pork chops. I typically prepare them in the oven, breaded and baked with some applesauce – but I’ve been craving a change. My mother always made them in a skillet with brown onion gravy and some stuffing (which I’ve always loved), but after a long day of teaching (and then hitting up the gym) this takes too much effort. I’m exhausted by the time I get home. I needed a no-fuss solution to my pork chop problem. I’ve been looking for a good way to prepare them in the crockpot to save me some time – and I think I’ve finally figured it out.
ITALIAN SLOW COOKER PORK CHOPS
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 bone-in pork chops
2 Tbsp. of butter
2 large Vidalia onions, sliced
10-15 “hot & sweet” cherry peppers, diced (I buy the jar at Trader Joe’s)
1 Tbsp. of dried Italian seasoning
1 tsp. of black pepper
1/2 tsp. of salt
WHAT TO DO:
- Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat, and add the pork chops. Lightly sear the chops on both sides until they start becoming golden.
- Place the chops into the crockpot.
- Sprinkle the chops with salt and pepper, and then cover them with the sliced onions and peppers. Top with the Italian seasoning.
- Place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours. Peppers and onions should become wilted, and the pork should be very tender.
- Plate up and dig in!
