That’s about all you have to do for this delicious dish. Let’s face it ladies and gentlemen, apples and pork chops go hand in hand. When you put this winning combination in the crock pot, you get an effortless feast!
It’s late Fall here in the Pacific Northwest. That means rain, wind, and about 8 hours of light a day. Times like these, all I want cook are things that cook themselves in my trusty crockpot. That gives me more time to curl up on the couch in my robe with a cup of hot cider and watch bad TV. Can I get an amen? My motivation isn’t worth much, all the clouds and darkness really slow me down. Except for when it comes to making really good food in the slow cooker. That I can get up off my behind for and spend the rest of the day anticipating dinner.
Apple pie pork chops is a cinch! Slice and peel the apples then spice them just like you would for a pie. Place them in the crockpot with a little chicken broth on high for a couple hours to soften. Toss the pork chops with brown mustard, honey, and rosemary. Place them over the apples and they cook themselves in about an hour. We like ours with mashed potatoes and stuffing.
