Forgot to defrost the pork chops? No problem because this slow cooker recipe is best with frozen chops. It's a very simple recipe that's a snap to prepare and a delicious meal that will be ready in just a few hours.

This is the perfect pork chop recipe to prepare in the early afternoon on a weekend, though you can slow it down to a full-day cook. It will take just about 15 minutes to prepare and it's perfectly seasoned with onions, pepper, and mustard. Plus, because the pork is frozen, you don't have to worry about them drying out.

While the recipe calls for two pork chops, you can easily use it to make up to four chops in a large slow cooker. Serve these along with potatoes or rice and a salad or vegetable side.

If you want to prepare this dish in the morning, set the slow cooker to low and cook for about 8 hours.


  • 2 (3/4-inch-thick) boneless pork chops, frozen or partially defrosted

  • 1 chicken bouillon cube

  • 1/4 cup hot water

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 small onions

  • 1 dash freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

  4. Cut off the ends and peel the onions. Cut each onion in half crosswise to make 4 thick "wheels." Or peel, cut in half lengthwise, and slice.

  5. Place the onions in a single layer on the bottom of the slow cooker.

  • Use a ridged grill pan for searing the pork chops, and you will get a nice criss-cross pattern.
