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!

  1. I’m curious on the texture of the peppers. Cooking the peppers that long doesn’t over cook them? Nobody has mentioned that, and everyone seems to love it so maybe not. I’m excited to try it. I always seem to overcook my peppers to mush. I just didn’t know if it would be better if I added the peppers later???

  2. Does this freeze and reheat well? If so, how should I reheat? I made too much and I don’t want to waste it.

  3. I’ve made this dish several times and my family loves it! I cook around 6 chops, which obviously requires more seasoning. I use baby Yukon potatoes that are bite size and don’t require peeling. And I put a whole 10oz jar of jalapeño stuffed green olives.

  4. I finally crossed my fingers and tried this one. I’m the only one in the family who likes olives, so I’ve been scrolling past it for years. Turns out, if you mince the olives well, they like it just fine. 😉

    I substituted chicken breasts I had on hand for the pork and cooked on high for four hours, and it was fantastic. My husband LOVED it.

  5. I thought this was delicious. I used a little more sazon and a whole cup of olives because I love them!!!

  6. Fantastic and easy to make. Simply delicious, great combo of flavors and very filling. Even my husband who is a picky eater loved the meal. I served it over Spanish Rice. This recipe will be made again and again. Hard to believe it’s healthy. It is my first time making a Skinnytaste recipe. Looking forward to making other meals from Skinnytaste.

  7. So delish! I will definitely make this again and again! 

  8. Wow, they were soooooo hood. I cooked them for 3 hours on high. Heart recipe!! I live your latin recipes.

    • Wow, they were soooooo good. I cooked them for 3 hours on high. Geart recipe!! I live your latin recipes.

      • Wow, they were soooooo good. I cooked them for 3 hours on high. Great recipe!! I love your latin recipes.

  9. Can we use frozen pork chops?

  10. This was sooooooo good. Had to switch it up a little simply bc I did not realize it was supposed to in the slow cooker! Lol (mom brain) anyway so delicious! Thank you!!!

  11. This recipe was good but I did it a little different. I used a frozen 3pepper and onion blend and added about 1 tsp of Adobo to the sauce.  When I tasted the sauce it honestly didn’t taste that flavorful to me and needed something else which is why I added adobo. The Adobo makes all the difference. 

  12. Love this recipe. I’ve made it several times, but this time since we are watching our starchy carbs intake I subbed in cubes of butternut squash instead of the potatoes. In my opinion the butternut squash was waaaaay better, you get a combination of a little sweet and salty when combined with the olives. It was a hit and I’ll definitely be using the squash now instead.

    • Ooh – I love this idea!!

      • I made this recipe alittle over 2 weeks ago for my family, I personally do not eat pork chops however it was a HUGE hit so much to the point its requested again so its dinner again tonight! Mine definitely did not come out looking like the pictures as it was a pile of pulled pork more or less and scattered bones which could be slightly dangerous esp if smaller children are eating this, def a caution but the recipe itself however seems to be AMAZING! I think im going to try the same recipe with some boneless and skinless chicken breast in the near future. Highly recommend..

  13. Hi Gina! Have you tried to make this recipe with the Instant Pot yet? If so, what are your suggestions/directions?

    • I haven’t tried it yet.

    • Hi I cooked it in my pressure cookert came out perfect I might have added a little additional chicken broth. Also added a touch of cream sherry. My pork chops were thick bone in I cooked around 20 mins and my husband and daughter loved it.
