Reviews for Slow Cooker Pork Chops
"I have found that boneless pork loin can over cook quickly and become dry and when cool, tough (to me it's like chicken breast which do the same). Pork is my favorite meat so I changed the type of pork used immediately, and although pork loin, I used pork loin chops (with bone). It was very tasty. I would think you could even use a rolled pork butt and cook til the temp is 145 - 150 degrees. You may need to make more sauce/gravy. The suggested 'done' temp for pork has been lowered from 180 to 145- 150 and I find this helps a lot with the dryness of the meat not to mention the flavor!"
"I've made this twice in the last week! It's so easy to make. The only changes I made were that I used 1/4 cup of the leftover seasoned flour whisked into the broth to give it extra flavor. I also didn't have garlic pepper so I used 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp pepper. Make sure to use thick cut pork loin chops otherwise I can see how it might turn out dry."
"Easy to make, but there wasn't a lot of flavor. Also, be careful not to over cook it. Mine was a little dry after cooking for only 3 hours."
"These pork chops are super tender and delicious. I added a little extra seasonings and mixed in the leftover seasoned flour with the broth. I also added some cold water when the pork chops were removed to thin out the gravy. Real comfort food served with mashed potatoes and green beans."
"This was a very tasty pork chop recipe. I made this tonight for some friends while we are vacationing in SW Florida. They loved it, as did I. The pork came out amazingly tender. The changes I made were to saute a sliced yellow onion and shiitaki mushrooms in another pan while the chops were browning in another skillet. After placing the chops in the slow cooker, I combined the sauteed onions and mushrooms in with the flour and broth mixture and poured that over the top of the chops. I then sprinkled some dried thyme over the whole thing. The next time I make this, I will use the broth to scrape the drippings from the chop pan to give it even more flavor. This recipe is a definite keeper!"
"I used this recipe as a base & changed it quite a bit. First, I sauteed chopped onions & celery & placed in bottom of crock pot. Instead of using the seasonings listed, I used several of my favorite herbs in the flour mixture to give it more flavor. As a diabetic (carb) sub, I used Milled Golden Flax Seed instead of flour. (My unsuspecting husband didn't notice) Then using the seasoned flax left from the breading for the chops, stirred it into the liquid in the browning pan, whisked in chicken broth until a good consistency, & poured it over the chops in the crock pot. Then continued cooking as instructed. They were tender, had tasty flavor, & had a nice gravy to pour over the finished chops."
"I usually don't have very good luck with making pork chops that come out tender but this recipe was certainly worth the try. The pork loin chops turned out very, very tender. The only thing I did different was rub the chops with Penzey's pork chop seasoning before flouring and browning them. When they were done I whisked a bit of corn starch and water into the liquid and made a nice gravy. These were absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for a great recipe that we will put on our rotation."
"we liked this very much ."
"While the pork chops did turn out nice and tender, we did not care for the flavor whatsoever. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was very bland. They smelled better when I was browning them in the skillet."
"My husband and I enjoyed this very much. I followed the directions, although I only used 2 pork chops. I made the full recipe of sauce. All was delicious, comfort food supreme! I served it with rice pilaf and it was very tasty. This one's a keeper."
"not impressed. not much flavor."
"Absolutely amazing - used a little lemon dill seasoning, some pepper...and it was amazing. Anytime my kids clean their plates its a good night, not one bite left."
"I don't know why some of you say it was plain or whatever. You are the one seasoning it. I always add just a few more ingredients. Who really goes by every detail of a recipe? (Of course that is that you can't cook) Not me! This was indeed a great dinner. That is all!"
"Super bland, definitely need to kick it up - I even added carrots and onion. I'd probably use a seasoning packet and less liquid, since it wasn't a brine the liquid dried the pork out, it was tender just on the dry side. Serves no justice to cc porkchops."
"I Love this recipe and will add it to my tried and true recipes. I changed it a little by adding 1 large saute'ed sweet onion and about 1//2 lb of sliced mushrooms saute'ed with the onions."
""Excellent" words from my husband. Lots of flavor and good gravy. I did throw in a half of a large onion and a handful of baby carrots as well for good measure. I only had 3 pork chops so I thought I could make the switch."
"Easy and delicious."
"I would agree with MissMarieL. It definitely needs a little extra kick!!"
"A tad on the plain side, but still good. Served with TOH warm green bean and potato salad which worked together well."
"I really enjoyed this pork chop recipe. I followed the recipe only I used 2 pork chops instead of 4, nothing happened. The flavour was a bit plain, so I suggest adding something to complete the dish! Bon appetite!"
"My whole family loved this recipe and it was really easy to make. It was great with mashed potatoes as a side dish."
"I thought it was okay. Mine came out dry, so heaping the gravy on was essential."
"So easy and so good. My kind of recipe!"
"This is a very easy and tasty recipe. requires simple ingredients, simple step. Defiantly a keeper!"
"I made this and my family really liked it. Even my father-in-law who only likes grilled chops thought these were great.One thing I do is I dredge the chops in the flour mixrure and shake the caked flour off. then I brown the chops--I use bone-in chops.I add the letover seasoned flour mixture to the broth--I add enough extra flour to the seasoned flour to equal a 1/4 cup. Adding the seasoned flour to the gravy gives it a nice flavor.I usually don't need all of the extra 1/4 cup of flour that is called for in the recipe, so I often don't add it. Sometimes I add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce and parsley to the broth, and I add a 1/4 tsp ground sage to the flour mixture."
"I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious. I did not follow recipe exact for gravy because I cook to taste and I doubled the gravy to ensure there was plenty for mashed potatoes. I also topped the gravy in crock pot with thick sliced onions. We were all happy and full!"
"These were tough & very bland. I wouldn't make these again."
"Loved them. The gravy is just like my mom used to make and I have never been able to reproduce it. Now my crockpot can."
"My family enjoyed these chops. I did add in some extra spices of my own to jazz it up. I thickened the gravy at the end. I found the flour mixture got a bit "gummy" on the pork chops and my daughter did not care for that part so I ended up scraping it off- maybe I didn't brown them enough at the start."
"Prepared as directed and turned out great. Husband really liked it and he isn't a pork fan. Will be making again."
"These were delicious! Highly recommend this recipe and will be making and sharing."
"I will definitely be making this again, Ive tried many pork chop recipes and I have to say this was the best one I have tasted in a long time."
"Delicious, fork tender pork chops. When extending the recipe make sure to have more broth so all of the chops are covered with sauce in the slow cooker."
"Tender, moist & delicious."
"I read the other reviews and doubled the garlic/pepper, mustard and seasoning salt since a few others thought these were bland. I think that was the right choice because they turned out excellent! Will definitely make again."
"We liked this. The flavor is homey and comforting. Used butterfly chops and cooked on high for about 45 min and then on low for the remaining 3 hr 15 min. Very tender! Used extra garlic pepper to season when serving. This also reheated well the next day."
"Delicious!!!!! Will make again!!!"
"Super easy, delicious recipe. The chops come out so tender. I served mine with scalloped potatoes and green beans. Delicious!"
"Very good, the chops come out very tender and you don't need a stake knife to cut it!"
"My new go to recipe. My husband gave it a big thumbs up. Only thing I did different was to use left over seasoned flour to thicken the broth, added more flavor that way."
"This recipe has become a staple in my family! I do however double the amount of mustard that this calls for, and I have a homemade rub (Fort Griffin Store Rub)...you can do a google search to find the recipe....that I add a tsp. of to the mixture. Also, I use 1/4 cup of the flour and spice mixture to make the gravy with. Those extra seasonings make this absolutely PERFECT!"
"Yummy & easy!~ Theresa"
"This smelled so good while it was cooking in the slow cooker. My husband loves pork chops so he was really looking forward to it. We were both sorely disappointed. This turned out so bland, it was awful. The gravy was terrible and it ruined everything. It felt like I was eating "flour" stew. The pork chops were bland and tasteless. I've got to say, this is one of the worst meals I've ever made, other than the fish I cooked back in 1976 that my daughter still rants about to this day.My husband forced himself to eat his portion, I couldn't take more than a few bites, then I gave it to the dogs. Even they wouldn't eat it."
"I coated the pork chops with 1 teaspoon brown spicy mustard blended into 3 tablespoons of heavy cream, then put them into the flour mixture. I modified the flour mixture by eliminating the ground mustard, garlic pepper and seasoned salt and adding in 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic, 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon regular salt, 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil. Make sure your skillet and oil are hot when you put the chops in or your coating will stick to the pan instead of your chops. I used Minor's chicken Base to make the broth because the flavor is the best there is. I found the sauce the chops cooked in to be somewhat lumpy and had to use a mixer to smooth out the sauce again. But the pork chops were fork-tender and delicious. I pealed and halved naval oranges and fried them in honey butter very lightly and served them with whole new potatoes and grilled asparagus. Huge hit with the family, especially the grannies!"
"The only thing I changed was to add a package of pork gravy mix to the flour.The chops were fork tender and the gravy was delicious."
"I loved the original recipe! The second time I made it I used beef broth instead of chicken and added some beef flavor boost for a richer gravy. Both times were excellent!"
"Good base recipe. I used seasoned pepper, kosher salt, then added a couple cloves of fresh garlic to boost flavor. I also added a pinch of chicken bouillon!"
"<p>Great recipes for picky eaters. Very tasty.</p>"
"I added extra spices and the flavor turned out great, however the meat was on the dry side."
"My husband gives it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! The perfect pork chop! Yummy!"
"We love this recipe. I add more of the seasonings than what it calls for & I also use the Watkins brand chicken Broth which adds to the great flavor."
"I am in total agreement with summer888. I will increase the seasonings next time. I did not have the ground mustard to add, so I put in some thyme instead. We also had it over some penne pasta which was a nice combination."
"Solid recipe. Easy, with a basic flavor. Very tender. I might have to increase the seasonings to make it more interesting. We couldn't taste the mustard at all."
"This has become a staple at our house! Very tender pork and the gravy is great over mashed potatoes. Easy dinner."
"These were easy and tasty. If you had boneless chops and left them longer, they'd make a pork gravy you could serve over toast, potatoes or rice. Either way I'd double the gravy so there's more than just a a little to pour on the pork chops as shown in the picture."
"Okay not great."
"I thought it was very bland. The pork chop was very moist, but there was really no flavor to the flour mixture - I'd definitely add more spices, etc. to the mix and then again once it's in the crockpot."
"my husband doesn't care much for pork - but when he ate this i got a #10 - very tender and simple - good flavor"
"This was yummy and easy. I did salt and pepper the pork chops before breading, since it seems like pork chops always need it. The gravy was very flavorful. The pork chops weren't very tender after 3 1/2 hours, but they still tasted great."
"Very easy and tastes great!"
"Just made this tonight and thought it was great... served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Didn't quite get the full 3 hours in the crock pot but the pork was still quite moist. I ended up adding a little cornstarch to the drippings to thicken for gravy. This will be a regular recipe in my house!"
"These were so tender that we didn't even need to cut them, they just fell apart. They were very tasty and the only thing I changed was I added salt and pepper to them before browning them."
"Very good! Chops do not have a strong flavor, so some may change it a bit, but I liked the flavor as is."
"Good recipe, but the pork chops came out a little bland. Next time I'm going to try seasoning the pork chops with salt and pepper before putting it in the flour mixture. I made homemade rosemary garlic mashed potatoes to go with it and the gravy was great on it."
"Great recipe for fork tender pork with gravy!I will make this again."
"My family liked this recipe and we will make it again. I did cook my chops longer than the 3 hours and also will add a bit more seasoning next time as stated by another reviewer. Served the chops with the Buttery Sweet Potato casserole Nov/Dec 2007 and Lemon Pepper Green Beans and red grapes."
"This was delicious, but I used chops on the bone as I believe the bone imparts a much richer flavor. Just my opinion."
"This was delicious! My husband couldn't stop raving about the flavor, tenderness of the meat, and quality of the gravy. And easy to make!!"
"Made this for a friend and her mother, they really enjoyed it. Very impressed with the way the chops fell apart!"
"this recipe was so good and so easy to make! made a nice creamy gravy too....I am watching my MSG's in recipes, so this recipe fit with what I was looking for!Will be making this again soon!"
"I thought the time given wasn't long enough so I cooked mine for about 5 hours. The chops were tender and falling apart by then. I added all the flour and seasonings at once and used what was left to combine with the broth. I suspected even this wouldn't season the dish enough for me. I was right, next time I will add more of the items listed and a few herbs I like. I usually make a recipe as written the first time then alter to my liking. This is a great basic recipe but it may be too bland for you. I served it over noodles and with swiss almond floret bake(see review)."
"The best pork chops ever. Juicy and so tender we could cut them with a fork and flavorful - I wouldn't change a thing."
"I have made these a couple of times and everyone loves them! Super easy recipe with delicious results."
"This is an excellent recipe. I have used pork loin chops as well as pork cutlets. Delicious over mashed potatoes."
"My husband loves this dish! It is so simple and delicious!"
"Thanks for the idea ericnabby! I did too and it was delicious!!"
"Re: slow cooker Pork ChopsMade this today for family. It was great! Used 6 chops as had 3 teenagers and 3 adults to feed! Made a bit more gravy as had extra chicken broth from 32 oz pkg. Cooked it longer (6 hrs) due to volume. Had never done chops in crock pot before. Son said they were very moist and tender! Have found a keeper and will make these again. Like the fact I do not have to use canned soup for the gravy. Served mashed potatoes, peas/ carrots/ small corn on cob, green salad and had made a fresh loaf of bread in bread maker. Meal fit for a King! Thanks, Sue! Will definitely keep this recipe on file.caglecat"
"This is delicious! LOVE IT! I am not a pork eater either but this was sooooo good! The meat was so tender. I did, however, use the flower mix that I used to bread the chops for what I mixed in with the broth. It added a lot of extra flavor and spice to the gravy. It was excellent! This is a new family favorite."
"I made this recipe awhile back and it was Excellent! My husband loved the tender pork chops and has requested I make again! I am making them again tomorrow night!"
"I made thes tonight and we loved them! I added 3 dashes of oregano and I substitued the seasonal with McCormick Hot Shot and it was excellent. Used the extra gravy for mashed potatoes."
