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 flavour 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 flavour 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.
