These slow cooker pork chops are seasoned with Latin spices in a flavorful sauce with tomatoes, olives, peppers and potatoes. They literally fall off the bone when they come out of the slow cooker!

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 4 center cut bone-in pork chops (trimmed of excess fat (with bone about 32 oz))
  • 1 1/2 tsp sazon (I used my homemade recipe)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp all purpose unbleached flour (for gluten free use sweet rice flour)
  • 8 oz yukon gold potato (peeled and diced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup alcapparado (or green pimento olives)
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 dried bay leaves

Instructions

  • Rub the pork chops with crushed garlic, then add sazon, cumin, 1/4 tsp kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the chops and add to the slow cooker.
  • Top with the potatoes and peppers.
  • Pour the tomato sauce and 1/4 cup water over the pork.
  • Add the garlic, alcapparado (or olives), 1/4 cup cilantro and bay leaves.
  • Cook until the potatoes are tender, for me that was on LOW 8 hours.
  • Transfer the pork chops to a platter and remove the bay leaves.
  • Add the remaining fresh cilantro to the sauce and stir.
  • To serve place 1 chop on each plate with 3/4 cups sauce and vegetables.
