A Crock Pot Conversation: Crock Pot Pork Chop Dinner

 Before we get started with this amazing recipe,
let me tell you a little bit about me and my Crock Pot.
We have been trying very hard to bond.
And our last meeting consisted of a conversation that went like this:
Me: Why do you feel you have to fight me?
Crock Pot: What do you mean? You put the food in and I cook it.
Me: But why do you produce food that is dry and lifeless?
Crock Pot: That is easy to answer. You just don't know how to 
push my buttons......
Let me tell you, after that conversation, we have become
very good friends. We are working very well together now.
I have learned how to push the crock pot's buttons.
I have found that low heat works so much better than high heat.
It would have been nice if the crock pot would have given 
me that tip freely.....DANG!
 This is a wonderful crock pot meal. 
All I did was dredge my boneless pork chops in
a flour mixture of,
1 c. flour
2 TBS. McCormick Perfect Pinch Parmesan Herb
Crushed black pepper to taste
I browned them in a Skillet using olive oil.
When they were brown I placed them in the bottom of
the crock pot. I cut about 8 red potatoes into chunks,
placed them on top of the pork chops, and then
poured 1 can of soup over all of it. It doesn't
matter what kind of soup you use.
I used a Progresso Italian Style Vegetable soup.
Let it cook on LOW for about 6-8 hours.
Just look at how moist that crock pot meal is.
Now go back up and look at the dried out chicken.
Bonding, I'm telling you, BONDING....

  1. Looks really good! I love my slow cooker also and have learned the hard way also that some dishes need to go on slow! Great photos Angie!

  2. The newer slow cookers are hotter than ones that first came out. You need to adjust cooking time on lots of recipes. Sometimes even on low things can be over cooked if you use an older recipe time..

  3. Girlfriend! Not only is that a gorgeous meal..your photos are gorgeous as well. Looks very yummy. I just learned a new 'trick'...I bought a plug in timer for my crockpot and now it can turn on or shut off when I'm not here. I am enjoying my pumpkin spice oatmeal that was cooked in the night. Happy to know you have a new-found friend! One that is 'in sync' with you. =)
