Recipe Tips

When it comes to slow cooker pork chops, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to get the best results.

  • This is completely optional but you could brown the pork chops before adding them to the slow cooker. This will help to lock in the flavor and prevent them from drying out.
  • Cook the pork chops on low heat for a longer period of time rather than cooking them on high heat for a shorter period of time. This will ensure that they are cooked through all the way and remain moist and juicy.
  • Be sure to add enough liquid to the slow cooker so that the gravy can properly form. If you don’t add enough liquid, the gravy will be too thick and won’t adhere to the pork chops as well.
