 These easy pork chops are perfect for a busy day any time of the year. The chops are easy to prepare and take about 5 to 6 hours to cook in the slow cooker.

A delicious sauce is made with the juices. Serve with mashed or roasted potatoes or rice, along with steamed broccoli or your favorite side vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil (enough to coat the skillet)
  • 4 center cut pork chops
  • Dash of black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix, (about 1 ounce)
  • 1 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth (low sodium)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Brown the chops, turning to brown both sides, about 5 to 7 minutes total. 

  2. Transfer the browned chops to a medium to large slow cooker.

  3. In a bowl or 2-cup measure, combine the soup mix, broth, and water. Pour over the chops.

  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours, or on HIGH for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours.

  5.  Transfer the pork chops to a serving plate or platter and keep warm.

  6. Strain the juices and skim off fat. Put the juices in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the butter until melted.

  7. Pour the sauce over the chops and serve.
