Crock-Pot/Slow-Cooker Pork Chop Tips

How do you keep pork chops from drying out?

Dredging the pork in flour and seasonings helps retain the juices. The addition of broth adds extra moisture, while the low and slow cooking prevents these pork chops from drying out. We recommend cooking pork at 145 degrees to retain moisture.

Can you freeze slow-cooker pork chops?

Yes, you can freeze slow-cooker pork chops! Wrap leftover chops in heavy-duty foil and place in an airtight freezer container for up to 4 months. To use, thaw in the fridge, remove the foil and reheat in the microwave. You can try freezing any of these pork freezer meals, too!

What other flavor variations do you recommend?

For a sweet and spicy variation, brush the pork chops with barbecue sauce, then top with the bacon mixture and pepper jack cheese. You could also try mixing brown sugar, cider vinegar and a hint of spicy ground mustard to create a classic flavor combination that’s both sweet and sour. This sauce is also tasty on smoked kielbasa.

What goes well with pork chops?

Slow-cooker pork chops taste terrific alongside chunky applesauce and brussels sprouts with bacon.

    Made this last night. Very easy recipe, but did double the seasoning after reading reviews and also added a sliced onion and some baby carrots. Still lacked flavor! Chops were tender. Definitely need to add lots of additional seasoning. Will try it again.

    So easy and flavorful! I used a pork loin instead and was so moist! This will be a new staple in our home.

    Made this for my husband who doesn't really like pork chops because he says they always turn out dry. This recipe did not. I didn't have boneless chops so I just cut them off the bone and it was perfect. Will be making pork chops this way every time.

    This is one I'm sure to make over and over. I use the slow cook option on my crockpot express and that way I can brown the chops right there in the cooker with no extra pan. It's a perfect basic recipe, and I love the test kitchen tip for sweet and spicy variation!

    This was fast, easy and yummy! I only put the mustard in with the flour though. I seasoned the meat with the other spices before dredging with flour. The whole family loved it! Thanks for sharing! It's a keeper!

    Ive Rated this 4 stars bc it’s a solid basic recipe; the method makes for nice, tender, pork chops. It’s not a dump meal, so be prepared for some prep time, and don’t skip browning the chops, because it’s a very important step. I do have to agree with the others who say it’s pretty bland, as written, though. The second time I made this recipe, i took the other reviews into consideration...so I used salt and pepper to directly season the chops, and I doubled the seasonings (season salt, mustard, garlic pepper) in the flour dredge-which makes for tastier chops AND gravy. Another hint...I slice maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of a small onion and place the the rings in the bottom of the crockpot, before I put the browned pork chops in. The onion adds a nice, mild flavor. Also, depending on my mood, I will sub out about 1/4c to 1/3c of the 14.5oz broth with sherry or white wine, whatever I have on hand. It adds a depth of flavor that’s nice, on occasion, especially if you’re serving company, but it’s still great if you skip the wine. I make this with garlic mashed potatoes and a green veggie, and the gravy is perfect with the potatoes, although in a pinch, rice will work too. Although I’ve made this my own to a large extent, the basic ingredients and methods are fantastic. Amp it up and bit and you’ve got a 5-Star dish!

    Chops were very tender and flavorful! I made my gravy a little different from the recipe. I melted some butter in a skillet and added my flour and cooked it a few minutes then slowly stirred in broth and cooked until thickened. Gravy was very tasty. This is a recipe I will make often!
