Slow Cooker Maple Dijon Pork Chops


Slow Cooker Maple Dijon Pork Chops

I love the open slow cooker put stuff in and have dinner waiting when you come home dishes.  This dish actually takes about 10 minutes of preparation before putting it into the slow cooker.  It is so worth it though.  The delicious pork is tender and has a great flavor from the onions cooked in the sauce prior to adding it to the slow cooker.  Take the time to do the extra bit of prep work for this dish it is well worth it.

Verdict:

Just from the smell of this dish both children couldn’t wait to dive in.  This was another of our To-Go divided dish meals to eat in the car.  Normally I probably wouldn’t do pork or steak as it needs to be cut when eating but this was fall off the bone tender and could be cut with the fork.

Yes, even my onion hating daughter loved the onions on this and was picking them out of the sauce.

I served this with green beans and mashed red potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 large pork chops
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 TBSP Dijon mustard with stone ground seeds
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  •  

    1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • Black Pepper and salt

Directions:

  1. Heat up the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the pork chops and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Sear both sides of chops over high heat (about 2 minutes per side) then transfer to slow cooker.
  2. Lower the heat to medium and add the onions. Cook until onions are just starting to soften (5-8 minutes) then add the cider vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes and then pour sauce over chops in the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for 6 hours until chops are cooked through.
