Saucy Pork Chops Recipe

Saucy Pork Chops Recipe

I don't always have time to fix the home-cooked meals my family loves, so I've come to rely on my slow cooker a lot. I fix these tangy chops at least once a week—the meat's so tender you can cut it with a fork—and we all love it! —Jennifer Ruberg, Two Harbors, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle pork chops with garlic powder, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown chops in oil on both sides; drain.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and liquid smoke if desired. Pour half of the sauce into a 3-qt. slow cooker. Top with pork chops and remaining sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until meat is tender. Yield: 4 servings.

"I made this recipe for Saucy Pork Chops today. I halved the recipe using two pork chops. It was very easy to make, I cooked it on low for about 4-1/2 hours, and the pork chops were done and were very tender and tasty. I read other reviews suggesting adding onion, and I added dried minced onion, other than adding the onions and halving the recipe I prepared the recipe as directed. Very good. Thank you. This recipe is a keeper."

"Like another reviewer, my Mom used to fix this years ago. I also added an onion, just sliced it over the top of the chops when I put them in the slow cooker and didn't use Liquid Smoke because I didn't have any. I used half Ketchup and half Heinz chili Sauce because that's what my Mom used to use and these were scrumptious, delicious, wonderful chops!! I live alone so I cooked the whole batch and froze 3 which I often do. Be sure to use bone-in thick pork chops."

"My mother used to make this and I never got her recipe before she passed. This recipe sounded like it so I tried it. So glad to finally find it. The only thing that I changed was that she always included an onion. So I sliced a white onion and browned with the chops. Delicious!"

"Shirleysurly-the sodium content is not very unreasonable. Also, the amounts of ketchup and brown sugar can be adjusted by anyone with a modicum of common sense and imagination. As with a majority of recipes, this one can provide a base recipe upon which you can build if so desired. A decent barbecue-type sauce, and the chops were tender. The brown sugar helps to "mellow" the acidity of the ketchup (even though it already has sugar)."

"This was so delicious! I forgot to take the chops out of the freezer, so I just decided to try throwing them in partially frozen. It worked great - I didn't even brown them(cause they were too frozen!:{), just added the salt, pepper and garlic powder to the ketchup mixture to keep the flavours. They were in for pretty much exactly 4 hours on low - turned out perfect! Will definitely make them again!"
