This is a recipe that I would like better with some tweeking. The gravy is not as thick or have as much mushroom flavor as I'd like. It also took a couple of hours longer than it said. The pork was tender but needed some more spice or something. Altogether a good basic recipe that I would prefer to build on!

We weren't fans at all. Maybe it was the dijon mustard?? Who knows but we didn't like it at all and threw it out. It was lacking all around to say the very least.

I basically used it as a stepping stone and added some spices (red pepper, onion powder), julienne the potatoes, added Publix Deli Style Mustard with Horseradish and upped the amounts a bit and it turned out wonderful.

This was very good and so easy to put together. After reading the other reviews I cooked it for about 8 hours and it was super tender and everyone loved it.

Like others have said, it takes a little longer than the 6 hrs. to cook on low. I had to cook for 7 hrs. Also, chops should be browned in frying pan before placing in slow cooker, otherwise, they look awfully anemic when done. My husband said it smelled really good and chops were tender, but there was nothing special about the recipe, and he wouldn't care for it again.

Due to the comments here, we have reviewed this recipe and increased the cook time to 4-6 hours on low. There are several variables that could impact the cook time, such as the thickness of your potatoes and pork chops. The age of your slow cooker will make a difference too. Newer slow cookers cook much hotter and faster than older ones.The pork chops could be briefly browned in a skillet first if desired.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Had the same problem as others. Four hours didn't seem like enough cooking time. And, the pork chops weren't tender enough and the look of them was not very appatizing. The potatoes and the onions were the best part, but some of the potatoes were a bit hard.

We enjoyed this dish very much. I didn't have any pork chops on hand, so used a small loin pork roast, and added a jar of mushrooms. I do think the gravy is a little bland and will more seasoning next time. I think a little Kitchen Bouquet would give it a much richer look. I cooked this on "low" for 8 hours.

I have made a similar recipe for years in a baking dish long before slow cookers were around. I've always browned the chops first, then baked the casserole covered at 325 for 3 hours so that chops & potatoes are nice & tender. I'm going to try this in my slow cooker. It should work fine, but my cooker is old & very low heat, so I'll cook on high for 4 hours, then turn to low for another 4 hours. If your slow cooker produces pretty good heat, I'd say cook on low for a good 8 hours. My family always liked this dish. You can add mushrooms, carrots, green beans, whatever, to make a one-dish meal. Peel & slice some russet potatoes if you don't have the small red ones.
