A simple, tasty recipe that tastes great. I prefer pork steaks to pork chops, but I imagine pork chops would work as well if that's what you have. I served them with jasmine rice. Directions are included for both crock pot and stove top cooking. Cook time listed is for crock pot.

This was quite good. I had initially planned to make it in the crock pot, but it came together very quickly on the stovetop. While it simmered, I made basmati rice and steamed veggies to go with it. The sauce thickened up and cooked down a bit, so next time I make it, I'll double the sauce to have a bit more to go on the rice. I cut the apricots into strips, but will likely dice them into smaller pieces next time. Overall, simple, good flavor, and quick to make. I especially like that I can keep the ingredients on hand in the pantry and freezer.
