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

Way too much sodium and I imagine the sugar content is very high. Ketchup has alot of sugar in it and then you're adding brown sugar????

This is definitely a keeper! I don't usually like pork chops, but make them fairly often for my family. Our kids who are living at home right now, ages 16 to 28, thought these were terrific. So easy to put together with ingredients on-hand! Will make this recipe often! Thanks for sharing it!

I topped each pork chop with a 1/2 cup of the ketchup/brown sugar, put an onion slice on top and wrapped each chop individually in aluminum foil. Put them on the grill for about an hour. Moist and delicious. Family loved them.

I followed the recipe, and it was easy and delicious. I gave it 4 stars, because it was so tender, the meat fell off the bones. So it wasn't the prettiest dish! I may have cooked it 6 hours.
