Instructions
  1. Place flour, poultry seasoning and salt into a zip-top plastic bag and shake to mix. Add chops and shake until they are lightly coated.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet large enough to hold all the chops over medium high heat, adding the oil until it shimmers. Place the chops into the pan and saute 2 - 3 minutes per side until golden brown.
  3. Remove chops from the pan and, still on the heat, add 2 tablespoons flour mixture from the plastic bag into the skillet, stirring a few seconds to cook the flour. Add about ½ cup of the broth to the skillet and cook and stir to lift any browned bits from the pan. Add the remaining broth to the pan and turn off the heat. Reserve the remaining flour mixture for later.
  4. Place the onion into the bottom of the slow cooker and lay the pork chops on top. Pour the liquids from the pan over the chops, cover and cook on high 2 hours.
  5. Open the cooker and ladle out about ¼ cup of the resulting juices into a small bowl. Stir in the remaining flour mixture from the plastic bag into the juices until completely smooth. Return this mixture to the slow cooker, stirring to mix. Cover and continue to cook 30- 45 more minutes.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, using the sauce in the pot as gravy. 


Editor's Note: This is a typical southern dish often called “smothered pork chops."

I'm usually not a fan of pork chops, but these were amazing!

I love using the crock pot for all my dinners. Just prep in the morning and you don't have to worry when you get home from work!

Definitely a keeper.

Very good! Easy to make. I also served with mashed potatoes and Broccoli.

This recipe is so simple to throw together! Served alongside mashed potatoes and a veggie, it's a perfect family dinner. The gravy made everything so moist and flavorful!

You can brown the chops in the crock pot, first.

Is it possible to double the recipe by layering it?

We believe so. Enjoy!

Yep use Butt chops, then do the same recipe. I simply throw Butt chops, 2 cans of Campbells Mushroom soup and a about 1/8 cup of milk ( I mix the soup and Milk) I salt and pepper the chops, brown them in a frying pan, then put them in the slow cooker. Then i pour the Soup/milk mix over, cook on low for 7 1/2. I serve this over rice, but egg noodles could be used as well.

No way do you use lean (& costly) cuts of meat in a slow cooker. Use blade chops or other cheaper cuts.

Yum! This turned out so flavorful and moist with a perfect blend of herbs and spices! I added a layer each of baby carrots, potatoes, and string beans on top of the chops. I don't eat dairy, so I substituted the butter with avocado oil and added extra once the vegetables were layered. It's a keeper!

just one small problem i think there is a typo on paprika think it should say teaspoon not tablespoon it blew our heads had to calm it down with my gravy and not the juice from slow cooker even so still very hot but could tell this will be fantastic when i adjust it really i am not a wimp (anyone need a hotair ballon inflating)

You are correct. You can adjust the seasonings to your taste, of course, but we have adjusted the paprika amount to 1 teaspoon.

The recipe sounds yummy. I think it's the comments that confuse people. Read the recipe. It does not say anything about standing. It is someones comment!

I ACTUALLY BROWNED MINE FIRST.......AND THEN FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS.

It was ok I would increase the liquid..some chops came out dry. Onions had a goo flavor.

I have made these twice. I like a creamier sauce, so I added a can of cream of chicken soup. Also added potatoes and carrots later on in the cooking process. Delicious!

When you add the cream of chicken, is that in place of the chicken broth?

Doesn't look like picture but everyone liked. The house smelled fabulous all day and was great with buttered noodles and red wine :)

Very good porkchops. They are so moist the bones fell of the chops while cooking.

The comments that people are making regarding this recipe have me shaking my head. My mother always told me to read the recipe twice before I actually begin to cook. It's also helpful, as one person suggested, to gather all of the ingredients before one begins to actually cook the recipe. This will allow you to be organized. And if the recipe writer throws you a curve ball, like for instance adding the ingredients not in the order they are listed, you'll be ready for it. These comments about standing the pork chops up are hilarious. Just read the recipe and disregard the comments unless they are regarding improving the recipe or etc. These people have me cracking up. It's just a recipe people, not rocket science. This is my second time making these. This recipe is a keeper. Moist and flavorful chops.

I want to try this recipe. My slow cooker has a low setting and a high setting. Which should I use?

Instructions; cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours, =..=

I want to try this recipe. My slow cooker has a low setting and a high setting. Which should I use?

anyone know the nutritional info on these per serving.

Depending on how much chops you use. I had about 60 ounces and divided it up into 7 servings. It was 516 cals per serving (2 carbs/21 fat/74 protein).

Made these for the second time, my husband and I love them! They are so moist and delicious.

Made this tonight and my picky husband and I both LOVED it! I omitted the sage and used 1/2 t. rosemary instead and didn't use parsley. (And if you flip the meat over prior to serving, it does pretty much look like the picture.) I think this would also be great with a pork tenderloin and maybe even chicken!

My family and I could hardly eat these. I followed the recipe exactly. They were so garlic tasting that they were unpleasant to say the least. Could not salvage them!!

no such thing as too much garlic!

The pork chops were the best ever.GREAT RECIPE

The picture looks like they browned the chops before hand. The recipe doesn't say to do this.

I always brown any meat before putting it into the crock pot. It not only makes it more appealing to look at but I think it tastes better too!

I would like to try this recipe, but, it won't let me print it out :( I tried 3 times! all I was able to get was the picture and the words in green. this never happened before! Help, please!

A lot of times I'll open a Word document and retype the recipe. The only down fall is you don't have a picture.

There is a white "Print" button below the name of the recipe. You can also hit Ctrl + P to print. If you still have issues, you can Copy and Paste the recipe into a Word Document. I hope this helps!

Read the directions w/the recipe. It does not tell you to stand the chops on end. One reader suggested standing potatoes on end as a nice side. Repeat: do not stand the chops on end.

Simple to make, great mix of spices and one of the best tasting slow cooker recipes we have tried to date.

I've made chops this way for years...just layer them! There is literally nothing that can't be made in the slo-cooker, and if you choose...stand some potaoes around the sides as an extra side with your dinner!! I've gone thru 5 slo-cookers in my yrs. and this is one of my favorite "cheaper" meals! BTW, if you do a pasta meal......add extra water with non-cooked pasta....wonderful!

Are we looking at the same recipe? I don't see any where,where it says stand you chops on the thin side. I have read this recipe,several times,and I still don't see it. It does sound yummy,though.I am going to give it a try. Thanks for the recipe. Weezy

Just lay them flat!

What you read was from another person suggesting potatoes into the pot : here is how this all got started renegade159 4550369 Sep 10, 2012 I've made chops this way for years...just layer them! There is literally nothing that can't be made in the slo-cooker, and if you choose...stand some potaoes around the sides as an extra side with your dinner!! I've gone thru 5 slo-cookers in my yrs. and this is one of my favorite "cheaper" meals! BTW, if you do a pasta meal......add extra water with non-cooked pasta....wonderful!

rule of thumb, just always read entire recipe before starting and have your ingredients ready to mix up. Prep work only takes a few minutes. Sounds very flavorful. Happy cooking

I always wish that recipes would list the ingredients in the same order as they instructions tell you to use them. This one starts out telling you to melt the butter, 3rd on the list, and whisk together with the broth, 9th on the list, and the seasonings. Then put the onions, #2 on the list, and garlic, way down at #10. It's just frustrating to me to have to search for the ingredients on the list as they tell me what to do with them. Am I the only one with this issue?

This is possible...it's really a simple recipe!

LOL PCODY1, BUT YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.....I FIND THIS SO ANNOYING TOO....AND WHEN THEY SAY A PKG. OF THIS OR THAT....COME ON, GIVE THE SIZE PKG. THERE ARE DIFFERENT SIZES EVERYWHERE ....A CAN OF THIS A CAN OF THAT...WHAT SIZE CAN ? FOR REAL PEOPLE....GIVE US THE EXACT SIZES, MEASUREMENTS AND PLEASE KEEP THE INGREDIENTS IN ORDER.......

Come on people. Don't read anything into this recipe. I says nothing in the contents of the instructions to stand your chops. SO DON"T STAND YOUR CHOPS! Just follow the recipe as written. This looks delicious and I am going to make it tomorrow.

I'm gong to make this 2moro. I'll comment again & let every1 know how it went! Seems like a great tasting quick prep, meal. I plan to serve it with rice any other suggestions?

Do a baked potato by placing your potatoes along the sides of the slo-cooker!!

I guess I am confused by all the comments about the pork chops "standing". I don't see where that is mentioned in the recipe I ma looking at. And it does call for broth. Am I looking at the same recipe?

I agree. I think it seems simplier then they are making it. u put the chops right in the butter & garlic! No standing time needed, if were talking about the same recipe.....

No liquid? Do you keep the chops standing throughout cooking time?

The recipe calls for a cup of broth.

would love to make this, has anyone found out what "stand" means yet? Do you stand it upright on the bone? Thanks

I Still haven't heard how to STAND pork chops in crockpot!!!!!!!!

When you say "stand chops in slow cooker", How do you stand them? I always lay mine flat?? Just want to know???????????

doineedwater

sounds great!

do i need to put water in it?

I made this & it was DELISCIOUS Thanks you for your great recipes <3

I still can't figure out what standing up means? I guess I am dense. Could someone please send in a picture?

Hi, Kate. I might suggest posting your question on our Facebook page; perhaps a fellow reader can be of assistance or post a picture for you: www.facebook.com/recipelion

It is crazy how many tried to help explain just how to stand the pork chops up yet still have so many confused. I absolutely love this recipe & have made it 3x's now. I do sprinkle my chops with seasonings my family prefer then brown them before putting them into the crock pot. I make sure for this recipe I buy nice quality thick cut chops then slice a small slit down the middle opposite the fat. Then all is left is to put them in with the fat up & layer in the onions & butter. I have even thrown in some diced apples which makes this so divine. It also helps to be sure they all fit in snugly into your crock if they aren't thick enough to stand on their own.

A picture of placement in the slow cooker would have been helpful. Tried this recipe, and while the chops were tender and tasted good they did not have the lovely brown color as in your picture. Rather pale and not particularly appetizing looking.

I made this & it was vary tender and vary good tasting i use quick shake hickory grill seasoning & a little bit of beef stock my husband loves it, <3

Buy pork chops thick enough for stuffing and slice them or have them slice to stuff them and place them standing them up in your slow cooker witht the thin sides down and them standing up place the onions on top of them and place the buter on top of the onions and etc... that is whqt they mean by standing them up... I use the can't believe it is not butter and also SRAY IT ON DURING COOKING Hope that helps Cathy

8/25/10 Well looks like they corrected the recipe.....that's good....as I also was wondering what they meant when they said stand chops up on the thin end !!!!! you would really need thick chops to stand them up, then it says slice onions on top!!!! How can you slice onions on top when you stand them up in the slow cooker???? Someone needs to really read these recipes before posting them......I wonder, do they try them first before they post them???? Just in case an ingredient was left out.......I never make the recipe right away just in case someone left them out.... I haven't made them yet, but plan on this weekend....but I was only doing 3 chops.....going to be hard to pile onions on top of 3 chops that are standing up eh????? we'll see what happens......

I think what thin side down means is if the pork chops have a bone put the bone part up, or else just put them standing thin part up any way without the bone.

Everyone is asking the same question, what the heck does, "thin side down" mean???? How do you stand a chop up at all? With onions on top of it? And butter on top of that? Please...this is a very stupid way of writing a recipe.

I made this recipe yesterday, it was very good despite the onions I forgot to put in. I used natural seasonings (no salt) and pepper. The meat was fork tender, with a delicious flavor. I stood the butterfly chop so that the fat was on top, as it cooked it flowed over the meat. This one is a keeper!

I made this last night for dinner and it was terrible. No one in my family liked it. The texture of the meat was dry, the taste bland (although at least the onions tasted good) and overall very disappointing. I knew it sounded too easy/good to be true. Very disappointed.

What does stand chops on thin end mean?

Please explain what stand chops in slow cooker, thin side down mean? Marsha

what does standing pork chops with thin side down mean and look like

thin side down would be standing the chops with the side with the rim of fat up. the thin side of the chop is the side without fat. this way, the fat can brown the chop as it melts down.

Sounds delicious but I also would like to know what thin side down means.

The recipe sounds wonderful but we would still love to know what "standing up on the thin side" means...Is it standing it up on the bone, or the opposite side of the bone or where the butchers knife went south? Very confusing! And low would be about 200 degrees if you cooked it in the oven? ...Don't have a crockpot. Thanks, Y'all...

Still do not know how to stand pork chops thin side down.

Could someone explain to me what "Stand chops in slow cooker, thin side down" means?

could be "kicked up" bit. Also use a little more salt and pepper. Otherwise great

excellent receipt i love crockpot meals
