I have never been terribly successful with pork chops either on the grill or in the slow cooker. Which is why I was surprised to find some in the freezer when I was considering a recipe for our Use What You Have series. I don’t even remember buying pork chops but I must have been feeling optimistic that day.
Then, I really did pan sear the chops.
I poured the sauce over the meat and cooked everything on high for four hours. After heading out to run errands and get the van serviced, I picked up the Littles from daycare. The house smelled amazing when we came home and I could hardly wait to eat.
I poured the liquid into a sauce pan and made a gravy out of the juices with some water and cornstarch.
The boys had their pork chops and gravy over rice with some raw carrots and I had mine with a tossed salad (I was being virtuous that day).
This dinner was a huge hit for all of us! Don’t mind Aiden’s face…that’s his “happy face”. I know, right? We’re working on it. And don’t mind the blur. I think it’s well established that I can’t manage to capture any nice pictures of the boys. I don’t know if it’s because they never sit still or I’m completely inept but this is as good as it gets.
Would I make this again? You bet I would!
Fear of pork chops has been conquered.
