A Fall Meal – Slow Cooker Barbecue Pork Chops with Sliced Potatoes


I love passing this tree. It is my touchstone for the seasons. Right now it is turning bright reds and oranges for fall but I know before long I will be watching it bud and turn green with the hope that spring is coming.


This is not a great picture of what was actually a really tasty meal. The best part is you can make it with as little as 4 ingredients! You can add two extra ingredients to make it out of this world but really only the 4 main ingredients are needed to make a tasty dish.


This meal was put together at the last-minute. I had no idea what it was going to taste like or even if it would turn out but it turned out to be a dish we will be repeating. The juices from the pork chops seep down and the barbecue sauce combined with the potatoes and onions make the potatoes much better than I thought they could be. The pork was tender and tasty. Also because it was only cooked for 4 hours on high the meat stayed together in chops and didn’t fall apart. If you cook it longer they meat may fall apart. It still tastes great but you don’t retain the texture of the whole chop.

Adding cheese and crispy bacon to the top of the meal 20 minutes before serving will send this dish over the top. I decided not to do that on the first night I served this dish but my son added his own cheese as you can see in the picture. Adding to the slow cooker add a layer of cheesy goodness to the whole dish.

I served this with green beans and a side salad to complete the meal.

      Thank you! We are on about the exact same parallel that we were in NY. Also still living less than a mile from the lake in both places so lots of snow and ice. I prayed to live near the water when we moved. I meant ocean. Next time I need to be more specific with God.

  6. That tree is absolutely gorgeous! I had a favorite tree we would always pass by every year on our many trips to the coast. Sadly it died last year of some kind of blight. I miss my “perfect” tree! The meal looks great!

      Awe, how sad. I hate losing the big old trees. We used to have a huge maple in front of our old house that they figure was 150 years old. It had to be taken down because the center was rotting and carpenter ants were eating the core. One good storm and it may have ended up on our house. Eek!
