Slow Cooker Pork Chops
The first time I made these pork chops with caramelized onions and dijon cream sauce, I was very skeptical. I didn’t know how it would turn out.
When it was finished I was very surprised and very pleased.
This is a unique pork chop dish for when you are in the mood for something different. It only takes about 30 minutes to throw together and get into the crockpot in the morning, and then in the evening all you have to do is either mash some potatoes or boil some egg noodles with a vegetable on the side for a delicious, easy, and filling meal.
