All you need to serve with this recipe is some steamed green beans or asparagus and perhaps a green salad tossed with sliced mushrooms and avocados. For dessert, a bakery pie or some homemade cookies and brownies would be wonderful.
- 4 pork chops, well trimmed
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 1 (10 ounce) can ready to serve chicken broth
You can brown the pork chops if you wish in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Don't cook the chops longer than that; they should only be browned for appearance and to add some flavor.
Place the pork chops in a 3-1/2-4 quart crockpot. In a medium bowl, combine the soup mix and the chicken broth and stir until blended. Pour this mixture over the pork chops in the slow cooker.
Cover the crockpot and cook the pork chops on low heat for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the pork should register at least 145°F on a meat thermometer, but odds are they will be well done. The pork chops may fall apart because they are so tender.
You can thicken the liquid for a gravy if you'd like. Pour about 2 cups of the liquid into a medium saucepan and add 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/3 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook until slightly thickened. Adjust seasonings and serve.
