Slow Cooker Southern Smothered Pork Chops Recipe

Slow Cooker Southern Smothered Pork Chops Recipe
One of the most iconic southern comfort dishes is smothered pork chops. There are hundreds of recipes and variations, and it seems every family has their own favorite. Busy cooks often utilize their slow cookers to save meal prep time and let dinner cook without any monitoring. This recipe for Slow Cooker Southern Smothered Pork Chops is my favorite variation, and it is quick and easy to put together.
While you can use any pork chops that you happen to have around, we like the sirloin chops or boneless loin chops, but because they cook for a long time, you can also use bone-in pork chops.

8 Servings

3 pounds sirloin pork chops, or boneless pork loin chops
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 medium onion, sliced
1 lemon, sliced and seeds removed
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and sliced
1 to 3 Serrano peppers, cored, seeded, and chopped, or jalapeño peppers
2 cups catsup
1/2 cup brown sugar

Hot cooked rice

  1. Place the pork chops on the bottom of a 4-6 quart slow cooker; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Layer the onions, lemon slices, green pepper, and Serrano peppers over the pork chops.
  3. Mix the catsup and brown sugar; pour over all.
  4. Cover the slow cooker, set the slow cooker to low, and cook 4-6 hours or until the pork is tender. After 3 hours, tilt the lid slightly to remove excess liquid. If the sauce is still too thin, pour the liquid into a saucepan and boil until thickened; pour over the chops. Serve with hot cooked rice.
