Great...way above my expectations! I had three boneless 1 ” pork chops and was short on time. I followed the sauce recipe (tangy and quick). I put sauce with onion slices in the crockpot, added lightly-browned pork chops, add last layer of sauce and sliced onion, set the crockpot on high for an hour, and turned it down to low for an additional hour and a half. Simple, fast, tasty! Can’t go wrong!

My husband would have given this a 10.Very easy. Delicious, meat was tender, nice flavor.Even worked with boneless pork chops from the freezer, not fully thawed.

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.

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.

Followed the recipe exactly and thought it was too ketchup-y for my taste.

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.
