Kel’s Sinful Smothered Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Kel's Smothered Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Not only are these pork chops fall-apart tender, but the sour cream mushroom sauce is absolutely amazing. And if you make it in a slow cooker such as the Ninja 3-in-1 cooking system, browning and cooking take place in the same vessel — less for you to clean!

A couple of things about this recipe — 1) I used Progresso’s creamy mushroom soup, which does not have to be diluted. If you decide to use condensed Cream or mushroom soup, increase the chicken bouillon to 1¾ cups. 2) If you’d like, use boneless pork chops instead and serve them with the awesome sauce on top of hot, homemade biscuits. Talk about comfort food!

Ingredients

Kel's Smothered Pork Chops ingredients

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (I used white wheat)
  • Pampered Chef Peppercorn and garlic rub, to taste (you can substitute fresh ground pepper and garlic salt here)
  • Garlic salt, to taste
  • Smoked paprika, to taste
  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused canola oil (again, I shamelessly recommend Pampered Chef’s Garlic-infused Canola Oil)
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into thick slices
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 can (18 oz.) creamy mushroom soup (I used Progresso)
