I love making crock pot dinners because they are so easy. Some of my favorite pork meals are Slow Cooked Pernil, Slow Cooked Sweet Barbacoa Pork, Slow Cooked Filipino Adobo Pulled Pork, and Slow Cooker Pork and Green Chile Stew.


I love to serve them with just a little brown rice on the side, but totally optional.

My house was a little divided on this recipe. My husband thought it was good but not great, but my oldest daughter Karina thought it was AMAZING as she put it. I really liked this a lot too, and it was my first time making pork chops in the slow cooker believe it or not but won’t be my last.

I weighed the pork off the bone and got 4 oz cooked, so that is how I calculated these since they are not always the same size and the bones vary in size. If you go with boneless chops, that about 5 oz raw for each one.

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!
