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 made the Sazon mix for another recipe and need to use it up….so, I thought I’d try this. What are the Freestyle points, please?

  2. Update on pressure cooker -I reduced time to 6 minutes with releasing pressure after 10 more minutes. They were done for sure and the potato still held shape but was very soft. I had them cut pretty small. They were about 1 inch thick, boneless pork chops that weighed maybe about 19 ounces after trimmed. I think 5 minutes would be enough. My instant read thermometer was 185. They were still tender. I have a Cuisinart pressure cooker. They were great, we love this recipe, made this way or slow cooker.

  3. Forgot to add in my previous review I used boneless pork and did cook about 7 hours on low. Had to drain a bit of liquid out of the small crockpot but added it again at the end. The pork was chunky and easy to shred and tasted fantastic as leftovers. Would work well in a taco, burrito or salad too.

  4. Absolutely loved this. Made the homemade Sazon seasoning with 1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika and 1/2 Tbsp turmeric rather than the annatto. Only had a 1 and 1/2 quart crockpot because we’re on holiday. Used 2 pounds very lean country style pork ribs and skipped the potatoes. Didn’t have tomato sauce so used 1 cup diced tomatoes blended with a leftover chipotle pepper and skipped water. Used stuffed Seville olives (cleaning out the fridge!) This was amazing. 
    What I love about Gina’s recipes is that they’re so adaptable and delicious and healthy!

  5. Have made this several times and it is a favorite. This time I did it in the pressure cooker. I guessed as to the time as I only had two boneless pork chops–still a bit frozen too as I forgot to take them out of the freezer early in the day! Total weight of chops was about 9.5 ounces. I set it for 7 minutes on high with natural release of pressure and they were plenty done.. I think the sauce had even more flavor then usual. I did generous half plus for seasoning and in the amounts for the sauce and potato etc. as only serving two. Turned out perfectly. Found I had no peppers so used jar roasted red peppers.

  6. This sounds yummy and I’d like to try it. Can I cook it on high for 4hours?

  8. I wanted to finally leave a comment on this recipe.  It’s well-loved in my house.  I’ve probably made it a half dozen times.  Thank you!

  10. This was excellent, although I made it using a 3lb. pork shoulder roast trimmed of most fat, left whole.

  11. Hi Gina – what would the process and timing be if I wanted to make this in my Instant Pot?
    Thanks – love your recipes!!!

  12. This meal was perfect and tasty and easy!!! I really enjoy your recipes.

  13. This was absolutely amazing!! I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. Will be making often!

  14. Hi Gina this looks delicious! How would I do this in my instapot via pressure cooking?

  15. Made this last night, and after reading most of the comments I made one change and added a can of petite diced tomatoes to give it more liquid. I used boneless thick cut pork chops and left if in the crockpot for 8 hours on low, then 2 hours on warm. I did need to add 1/4 cup of liquid (I used chicken broth) since there was almost none left. The pork was fall apart (which I was looking for) and made it more of a stew (again more what I was looking for). I poured it over some brown rice and it was almost perfect, just needs something a little extra next time I make it, and there will be a next time. Even my BF, who hates when I spice up recipes (since apparently I can handle a lot of heat) suggested it needed a little more spice, so next time I make this I’ll be added a tablespoon or two of chipotle adobo sauce to give it a small smokey kick which I think will make it amazing for my palate. All in all, love the recipe its so easy to prep then let it cook. Thanks Gina!

  16. Loved the recipe, except next time I will not use bone in chops. The pork completely fell apart and we were picking bone pieces out of our mouths the whole dinner. I did not use olives as neither of us like olives. Other than that it was delicious. Dangerous with bone in, but delicious.

  17. Just sat down to this for dinner and realized I didn’t use Sazon, I used Badia Adobo seasoning. Whoops! But it was absolutely delicious none the less! Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. My whole family loves this, we’ll be making this again this week!

  19. Hi Gina! I’ve been following your blog since 2008 and have loved every recipe I’ve made from it. I really want to make this and I recently purchased an Instant Pot. I made the Chicken Lentils in it and it was amazing! Is it possible to make this in the instant pot? What setting’s would I use and for how long?

    Can’t wait to see more instant recipes and conversions of current recipes!

  20. I am using the same slow cooker you are.  My pork chops came out dry and tough – way overdone.  The same thing happened last week using bone-in chicken thighs.  Both were only cooked on low for 5 hours.  Do you think my slow cooker just cooks too hot? Do you have any idea how I might adjust the recipes?
