Slow Cooker Smothered Pork Chops – Slow Cooking Perfected
These slow cooker covered pork chops have a deliciously creamy sauce that’s loaded with flavor. I highly recommend trying it.
Pork chops are cooked to be incredibly tender and loaded with flavor thanks to the sauce. The sauce is loaded with flavor thanks to onion, mustard, thyme and Worcestershire sauce. It’s a truly delicious combination that the whole family will enjoy.
You’ll get four servings of this recipe, but I recommend making some side dishes to go with it. If you need to feed more people, simply double or triple the recipe.
Leftovers are fine to be stored in the fridge or freezer. They will last about three days in the refrigerator or three months in the freezer. There is a risk that the cream sauce will split when you reheat this dish.
of pork chops will have a profound impact on the outcome of this dish. Below are some suggestions for choosing the best pork chops for slow cooking.
Choosing a thick pork chop will probably produce the best results. Coarse meat allows for long cooking times, allowing flavors to develop. It is also likely to result in delicious tender meat.
You can use pork chops with bone or boneless. Either option will result in a delicious meal. However, the bone will help add a lot more flavor to the sauce, so I recommend using the bone if possible.
are many ways to adjust this recipe to make it more to your liking. Below are a couple of ideas on what you can do.
Mushrooms are an excellent addition to this recipe and can be added at the beginning of cooking. Other vegetables such as sliced pepper or carrot will also work well with the rest of the ingredients.
For ease of preparation, do not fry pork chops before adding them to the slow cooker. However, you can easily do this if you have time. I also recommend deglazing the pan with a little wine, so you get even more flavor.

Serving side dishes with suffocated pork chops I love serving these pork chops with
a side dish or two. Below are a couple of my favorite options.
One of my favorite side dishes to eat with pork chops is mashed sweet potatoes. They are super easy to make and can also be made in the slow cooker. Some steamed vegetables will also work great along with pork chops and mashed potatoes.
Steamed rice is another side dish that will work very well with the flavors of this dish. I love cooking rice in the rice cooker as it’s much easier than making it over the stove. For something, a little healthier, you can try cauliflower rice.
French fries and a salad are an excellent choice for a side dish. I love making a delicious green salad with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and sliced red onion. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, you can try making sweet potato chips instead of regular fries.
