These have to be, hands down, the BEST meal I have EVER made in a crock pot. I borrowed a friend's crock pot one weekend and made this for my honey. Low and behold, I got a crock pot for my next birthday along with a request for this recipe to be the first thing I made. I really wish I know where I got the recipe from because I would LOVE to give credit for it. I beg of you, do yourself a favor and try this. You will NOT regret it. Let me know what you think!!
I think this recipe is an absolute gem. Really, in all my years of cooking, I don't think I have ever made chops as delectable as these! Crispy-crunchy on the outside, meltingly tender and moist on the inside. The key, I think, is the salty milk marinade/brine, and making sure not to overcook them. Thanks to Gourmet Magazine for this one.
This has been a family favorite for years, it's an easy recipe that may also be made in an electric skillet instead of the oven, I have made this using cubed pork in place of the pork steaks/chops, and you can also make this using chicken pieces, see recipe#348602 the pork steaks can be browned in a skillet first if desired for extra flavor, use only low-sodium soy sauce for this, serve with cooked rice
The fresh herbs and spice paste form a wonderful crispy "crust" on this roast, while the interior remains meltingly tender. An added bonus...the fresh herbs smell wonderful during the slow roasting process!
Plan ahead the ribs need to marinade overnight, they are broiled firsty then they finish cooking in the oven. These ribs are so easy to make and they are to die for! You can also make this using pork tenderloins, I plan on trying this using chicken pieces.
