SLOW COOKER PORK CHOPS

Happy New Year.  It's 2011 already, can you believe it?  Where did 2010 go?  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday filled with lots of family, fun, games and most important, lots of yummy food!  This recipe is for all the busy cooks out there.  It doesn't get much easier than crock-pot meals.  This pork chop recipe comes from The Hungry Housewife.  Her picture made this dish look super yummy and convinced me to make it.  My eyes make up my mind for me the majority of the time, if it looks good I will try it.  I thought these pork chops tasted pretty good.  This dish definitely gets points for being super easy.  The chop itself was really good, but the sauce had a different flavor.  It was still good, it was just a little different than I had imagined it would taste like.  I think the rice went perfect with this dish.  I almost served this over mashed potatoes, but was glad I went with the rice instead.  If you make this, DO NOT add any salt.  I didn't add any and it was still almost too salty.   

Slow Cooker Pork Chops

4 thick-cut pork chops, bone in or boneless

pepper

Combine soup, dressing mix, garlic, wine and broth.  Sprinkle chops with pepper (Do Not Salt).  Place chops in slow cooker and pour soup mixture over top.  Cover and cook on high 4 hours or low 6-7 hours.  Serve over rice.  Serves: 4
