How to Make Crock Pot Pork Chops
To make these easy Crock Pot Pork Chops, first pat away any moisture on the chops and season them with salt and pepper. Then, heat the oil in a skillet until it shimmers. Brown each side approximately 2 minutes, only turning once. Line pork chops in a single layer in the crock pot and top with onions and mushrooms. Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and pour evenly over the pork chops and veggies. Cook on low for 6-7 hours, or until tender.
Secrets for How To Cook Pork Chops Tender
Knowing how to cook pork chops so they are tender can be a little tricky. Pork chops are usually pretty lean, so they cook quickly and are prone to overcooking. You can’t bank on specified cook time or color as accurate ways to measure whether pork chops are done. The best foolproof approach is to use a meat thermometer, and pork chops need to cook to 145 degrees. No more.

Do You Remember Your Mama Making Fried Pork Chops?
Who doesn’t? I certainly do! And, my Mama made the best salty gravy from scratch and served the chops with mashed potatoes, also smothered in salty gravy. She breaded her pork chops lightly, so they weren’t like chicken fried pork chops. You can, however, dip them in an egg and milk mixture prior to coating them with flour and you’ll have a much thicker coating that really sticks.

It is important to freeze or refrigerate according to pork safety standards and to freeze or refrigerate leftovers immediately.
