Start by mixing up some seasonings to rub on the pork chops. Put paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, and salt in a small bowl.
What other spices work on slow cooker pork chops?
You can season the pork chops with your favorite spice blends or simply use black pepper and salt. Other popular spices include onion powder, ground mustard, cayenne pepper, and even brown sugar.
Rub the seasoning mixture on both sides of the pork chops.
Dredge the seasoned pork chops in flour.
What does it mean to dredge in flour?
Dredging in flour simply means lightly coating with flour. For this recipe, it helps keep the seasoning on the pork and gives the chops a nice, golden brown appearance when seared.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan and sear the pork chops on both sides. Remove from heat and set aside.
Why sear pork chops before putting them in the slow cooker?
Searing the pork chops prior to putting them in the slow cooker helps them retain moisture. It also gives the pork chops added flavor and holds the seasoning in place.
Can I skip searing the meat?
Yes, you can skip searing the pork chops but keep in mind that your results will vary somewhat in flavor and appearance. To skip this step, simply season the meat and then add it to the slow cooker after the sauce is in it.
Now it is time to prepare the creamy sauce that the pork chops will cook in. Put the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and chicken broth in the slow cooker. Whisk to combine.
Would other cream soups work for this recipe?
Yes, you can use an equal amount of your favorite condensed cream soup instead of the cream of chicken I used to make this recipe. A popular choice when making pork chops is cream of mushroom soup!
Add the seared pork chops and spread a little of the sauce mixture over each chop. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours.
Remove the cooked pork chops and set them aside. Whisk the creamy sauce until smooth.
Serve the slow cooker pork chops with mashed potatoes and use the creamy sauce as gravy.
What sides go with slow cooker pork chops?
When we make slow cooker pork chops we like eating them with mashed potatoes and gravy. Instead of mashed potatoes, you could serve them with rice or cauliflower rice.
