Do you struggle to find ways to cook pork chops? If so, this slow cooker smothered pork chops recipe might be for you!
I have been having a lot of fun lately creating new recipes. For some reason this month, I have been downright inspired to create new tasty meals. Most have turned out really well with only one or two that just didn’t work at all. But many have allowed me to expand my regular meal rotation.
Last night I decided that I wanted to fix pork chops. I will fully admit that I don’t fix pork chops very often, mostly because each time we make them (usually on the grill), they just end up dry and tough. And I don’t know about you, but dry and tough is not exactly my favorite meat texture.
I decided that I wanted to try a slow cooker pork chop recipe to see if I could get a more tender and less chewy result. I decided to do pork chops smothered in a mushroom and onion sauce. The result was a fall off of the bone, tender pork chop. I used a center cut, thicker chop, but think that I would like to also try this with a boneless chop. Pair this with some roasted potatoes and a nice salad for a tasty meal!
