I got a little crazy already this week and started mixing around the order for making my meals. These home-style crock pot pork chops were not on my schedule until tomorrow but I could not resist making them tonight. Plus, I was desperate to have something other than chicken or beef.
This recipe popped up very recently on my Pinterest feed and I saved it because it looked very simple and very tasty. Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of pork. I prefer other proteins, especially beef or shrimp! <insert a delicious piece of prose about how tasty steak and shrimp is here>
Most pork recipes I find don’t cook the pork in a manner that I like. I feel most pork ends up way too dry. Dry pork is horrid. This is also one of the reasons I love to use my crock pot. I have less problems with overly dry pork when it’s cooked in the crock pot.
This recipe does not let me down. It gives me what I want when I cook pork. It’s fully cooked. The pork is very tender, tender enough that you don’t really need a knife to cut off pieces to eat. (Although, a knife will make it go a lot faster.) I liked the gravy too. It wasn’t overpowering but it didn’t leave me underwhelmed.
Mr. H didn’t hate the dish but he didn’t love it either. And the baby was too tired to really give it a try. (That’s what happens when we miss a nap, silly kid!)
I do recommend this for an easy pork dish. It doesn’t take much effort and only takes a few hours from start to finish. Easy enough even for the most novice of cooks (like me!)
