Mushroom Pork Chops FAQ

Should you brown pork chops before they go in the slow cooker?

Yessss. All of the yes. The reaction of the meat on the hot pan is something that can’t be replicated with sauces or seasonings. Take the time, get a big hot pan, and sear that stuff! you won’t regret it. 

Can you use frozen pork chops for this recipe?

You can, but I wouldn’t. See the above paragraph. I know it would be easier in some cases, but at least for this recipe – don’t do it! Use fresh or thawed pork chops and make sure to brown them well first. 

Can you thaw pork chops on the counter?

Nope.

Hard pass. 

Just don’t do it. 

This is one of those food-safety things that you just have to get on board with, even if your mom did thaw things on the counter all your life and you are still alive. Or at least if you do this, don’t feed it to me. 😀 Or the very young or very old. Kthxbai.

I went to the grocery store and got the ingredients. Having family over tomorrow. About how many servings does this recipe make? If I were to prep everything and refrigerate it over night so I can start it early in the morning do you think I'll loose quality in the meat and sauce? I usually make a more easier slow cooker pork chop with campbells soup and onions but since I'll be feeding more mouths I thought I'd do an extra special mushroom sauce! Thanks for the recipe.

Tried this recipe last night. I will admit to cutting back on the butter - I probably used 1.25-1.4 sticks, rather than the full 2 sticks. I also used baby portobella mushrooms. I tasted the sauce before I poured it over the pork chops and was concerned at the strong wine taste, but when we ate them, the wine was a very subtle flavor addition - not overpowering at all. I would suggest, however, that you add about 5-10 minutes cooking time to that step, though, for dummies like me that don't know you need to cook it a bit. Now for the reviews: All three of us thought they might have been the moist-est, tender-est pork chops we'd ever had! The flavor was great, and even my mushroom-hater loved them (although he did make a point of giving me all his mushrooms!) Although this recipe involved a great deal more prep work than most crock pot meals, it is definitely a keeper!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review this, Mary! I LOVE it when people report back to me how their dinners went. I'm so glad you guys enjoyed this. I don't blame you for cutting down on the butter. I probably would've too, if I had made it, but this is a Jeremiah special - and he loves his butter!
