365 Days of Slow Cooking, and I also have it in her cookbook, which is a great crockpot cookbook. This probably received the highest score of any crockpot recipes we've ever had, besides taco meat, so I was super happy. Owen gave it an 8, Aaron and I gave it a 9, and Noah gave it a perfect 10. He's been really happy with the meals we've had recently :). The calories for 1 serving are 207, and we had this with corn and baked potatoes. Yum!
4 slices crispy bacon, crumbled
1 onion, diced
1 T water
1/2 t brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t dried thyme
1/4 c flour
1/2 c chicken broth
2 T soy sauce
1 bay leaf
4 bone-in pork chops, dredged in flour, browned (about 1 minute on each side) and seasoned with salt and pepper (I didn't use bone-in, and I didn't dredge them in flour)
1 1/2 t cider vinegar
1 T dried parsley flakes (I didn't use this)
Place bacon in bottom of slow cooker. Microwave the onion, water, brown sugar, garlic and thyme for about 3-4 minutes (stirring every minute) until onions are softened. Stir the flour, broth and soy sauce into the onion mixture. Pour into slow cooker and add in the bay leaf. Nestle the pork chops into the sauce and cover and cook on LOW for 3-5 hours. Transfer pork chops to serving platter and tent loosely with foil. Remove fat from braising liquid with a large spoon. Discard bay leaf and then stir in the vinegar and parsley flakes. Spoon sauce over pork chops and serve.
Since I didn't dredge them in flour, and they were not bone in, we had more pork chunks rather than pork chops. So rich and delicious, I will definitely be making this again!
