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

"Made these for supper. My in-laws were over and everyone raved about them. I served with mashed potatoes and carrots and also had some leftover rice as my mother-in-law does not care for potatoes. I doubled the recipe. I sprinkled some 3 onion seasoning on the chops too. Super easy. I did not brown them, just put them in the crockpot frozen and cooked on high 4 1/2 hours. I am a Volunteer Field Editor for TOH and enjoy trying out recipes as part of my duties!"

"My family and I thought these were wonderful. I especially loved how easy they were to fix. They came out tender and juicy. I didn't think they were too sweet although I used 1/2 cup brown sugar but did not pack it. I did use the liquid smoke. If you are looking for an easy, tasty, fix and forget it this recipe could be for you! Thank you for sharing!"

"I really liked the sweet ketchup sauce but the chops seemed to get really dry in the slow cooker. I'd like to experiment with the sauce on other meats. I didn't use the Liquid Smoke."

"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."

"Thought these were quite tasty. I try to watch my sodium so I did skip the salt and instead used a little Mrs. Dash. Didn't have liquid smoke but put about a tsp of smoked paprika and it was delicious."

"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!"
