Happy mid-week, friends! How are you doing? Are you in the midst of your holiday shopping or are you ahead of the game and already done? Bravo to you if so!
I’ve done a lot of online ordering… and I’m hoping to get a few things wrapped soon so we have some actual presents underneath the tree. I also just got my holiday cards so I’m trying to find time to address all of those and get them out. I kind of have a love-hate relationship with Christmas cards – love getting them, kinda dread the sending out part of them 😕
Like I mentioned with my cranberry balsamic pork chops, I’ve been on a pork kick recently here on the blog.
Hope you don’t mind!
Today’s recipe is for saucy Italian slow cooker pork chops. And can we talk about this sauce?
It’s as easy to throw together as simply putting everything in the slow cooker on top of the seared pork chops. That’s all you have to do but oh wow, it comes out SO rich and thick.
The slow cooker does all the work to reduce the sauce until it’s got really deep flavor. You’ll be saying “Mamma Mia!” (👈 My Italian is rather limited 😉)
You’ll also be eating it with a spoon. Or at least, I do. Seriously delicious folks.
And it perfectly coats the pork chops. Between using bone-in chops and giving them a very quick sear to form a crust and lock in the flavor, you’ll be amazed at how much flavor these have. Light years beyond your standard pork chop….
