This was yummy. I cooked it longer in the skillet to make sure it was done all the way, but still had great flavor and texture. Easy to cook and clean up.
I did these in my small slow cooker. I used the thick boneless loin chops and you did not even have to cut them with a knife. They were soooo good.
