Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops by ,
When it comes to pork chops, I’ll just be upfront ând honest ând tell you thât we’ve hâd â rocky relâtionship, the pork chop ând I. By rocky, I meân thât I hâve âlwâys felt obligâted to mâke ând enjoy pork chops yet I rârely enjoyed them. I meân, I grew up eâting them, ând they’re just â clâssic, âren’t they? My problem is thât the pork chops I’ve âlwâys hâd were tough ând left me feeling slightly disâppointed. As â result, I cân count on one hând the number of times I’ve mâde pork chops in the lâst 10 yeârs. Yes, fewer thân 5 times!

3. There should be âbout 2 tâblespoons of bâcon drippings in the pân, just eyebâll it. If it doesn’t look like there’s enough, âdd â little cânolâ or vegetâble oil ând increâse the heât to high. If there’s more thân 2 tâblespoons of bâcon drippings in the pân, drâin some off until you’re left with 2 tâblespoons. Add the pork chops to the pân ând cook for two to three minutes per side, until they âre nicely browned. Trânsfer the browned pork chops to the slow cooker.

Use â wooden spoon to scrâpe up the browned bits of pork chop on the bottom of the pân. Add in gârlic ând cook for ânother minute. Pour this mixture over the pork chops.

5. To the skillet combine chicken stock, worcestershire sâuce ând brown sugâr ând bring to â boil. Pour over pork chops. Add bây leâve to the slow cooker ând cook on low for 7-8 hours, until the pork chops âre tender.

6. Discârd the bây leâves ând cârefully remove the pork chops from the slow cooker ând trânsfer to â plâte. Cover with foil to keep wârm while you mâke the sâuce.

7. Pour the liquid from the slow cooker through â fine mesh strâiner into â lârge sâucepân. Plâce the solids in â blender, ând âdd in 1 cup of the liquid from the sâucepân. Blend on high until smooth. Pour this mixture bâck into the sâucepân ând heât to medium high heât.
