Slow Cooker Pork Chops

4 servings
Prep: 15 min.
Total: 6.5 hours
  • 1 tablespoon Clover Valley™ canola oil
  • 4 (10-ounce) Feed the Party™ frozen bone-in pork chops, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Clover Valley™ onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Clover Valley™ black pepper
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can Clover Valley™ sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (29-ounce) can Bruce’s™ yams, drained
  • 1 (0.53-ounce) package Good & Smart™ freeze-dried apple crisps
  • 1/2 cup Martinelli’s apple juice
  • 1/4 cup Clover Valley™ light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Clover Valley™ ground cinnamon
  1. In a large skillet over high heat, heat oil until hot. Sprinkle pork chops evenly on both sides with onion powder and pepper. Add chops to skillet and brown on both sides.
  2. Place sauerkraut in a 5-quart or larger slow cooker and top with pork chops. (Chops may overlap each other.) Place yams and dried apples on top of pork chops.
  3. In a small bowl, combine apple juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon; mix well and pour over top. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 6 to 7 hours or until pork chops are no longer pink in center.

Better-for-You Tip: What we love about slow cooking is that as things cook, all the flavors blend together. That means we can add less salt, and in this case no salt, and we still end up with a dish that is worthy of a happy dance. Although we start with 10-ounce chops, after we trim away the excess fat, and remove the bone, we end up with a perfect protein-packed portion. Simply serve up the pork chops with the sauerkraut, sweet potatoes, and apples, and you end up with a year-round favorite that’s better-for-you in so many ways.
