"A bit of work at the beginning but well worth it. I loved the amount of seasoning. Just enough without overpowering the recipe. I served it with egg noodles and poured the sauce over the noodles and chops. After I was done frying the chops and had put them in the slow cooker, I poured the sauce into the frying pan and worked the brown bits off the bottom. Then I poured it all into the slow cooker. Will definitely make this again!"
