I have always wanted to try apples with pork chops and I love it. It makes like an apple and onion jam type topping that tastes amazing with the pork. Pork is my favorite meat and I really love pork chops. You can use bone-in or boneless, it doesn’t matter. I always think meat with bones has a little more flavor, but use whatever you have.
My style of cooking is to find what you got and make it work. I love cooking like it’s an episode of Chopped on the food network. What is there and what can I do with it. I always have apples for the kids and I always have onions. So this was a simple meal for me to make.
Cooking in the crockpot in the summer saves so much energy because you don’t heat up the house with the oven or have to stand over a hot stove. The best part about slow cooker cooking is the dump and forget it part.
All you have to do is slice up a couple of apples and onion and the rest is no work at all. You’re going to love these sweet chops and they will become a family favorite. And you’ll be amazed at how easy they are!
You are welcome to brown the pork chops before you dump them in, but that defeats the purpose of having it be a dump-in, one pot meal. You can also add more liquid if you’d like, 1/2 cup to 1 cup of stock or apple juice would work great.
You can use any kind of apples you’d like, but not red delicious or golden delicious. You need a firmer apple with more flavor. I used fuji and it turned out great. I would also suggest granny smith, honeycrisp, or gala as well.
