It’s apple season in Michigan and what goes better with pork than apple. Slow cooker easy and tasty enough to leave them asking for more.
Start with some pork chops. I used 1 inch slices of pork loin. A touch of salt and pepper and a good brush of Dijon and honey. Then slow cook for 7-8 hours until fall apart tender.
This is somewhat of a backwards rating. My wife gave it a 5. I’m a solid mid-4. Kind of backwards…
Notes: My loin chops I felt were little dry and higher fat pork chop would correct this (hence my 4). My wife could have eaten another.
I generally cut my “pork chops” from whole pork loins. I guess you would call that pork loin chops. These are 1 inch thick.
Peal and slice two medium apples. Thinly slice 1/2 of a medium onion.
Combine 1 tablespoon each of Dijon mustard and honey. Place in microwave for about 10 second on high. Then mix well.
Lightly salt and pepper the chops to taste. Brush the chops with the honey mixture.
Place in a small crock pot (I used 3.5 qt). Cover evenly with the onion and the apples.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
