This recipe is great for summer or winter. It is an all in one dinner that takes minutes to prepare. Add your own favorite vegetables or stay with the ones in the recipe. In summer you may wish to put your crock pot outside on the patio while it cooks. In Winter let the aromas fill your house. It is wonderful. Serve with crusty bread to sop up the sauce. Enjoy!

YUM!! My husband loved this meal Since I am a vegetarian, I picked out all of the vegetables and those were amazing as well. We will definitely be having these again.
I wont rate this as I plan to try this again with a few changes. I think if I can correctly change a couple of things to suit my needs this recipe would rate higher for me. My meat disintegrated into the sauce by the time my veggies were cooked. I ended up with basically shredded pork with bite size pieces mixed in when I tried to remove the chops. Next time I will put the potato and carrots on the bottom of my crockpot. Secondly, I used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Too sweet for our tastes in this recipe, although I use it all the time. I did double this so that may have contributed a lot in my issues with this recipe. I also omitted the peas. I will try this one again. It was good just needs some tweeking for me. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent! This recipe received a firm 5 star rating at our house. I doubled the pork chops, potatoes, and used 3 regular carrots cut into 3" logs. I left the sauce ingedients and other vegetables as per the recipe. (I didn't use the snow peas as I couldn't find fresh.) This filled a standard crockpot and made more than enough sauce to blanket everything and have some for biscuits. The taste is very flavorful, with a bit of zesty heat and a mild saucy "gravy" after it was thickened. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you for your RSC #10 entry!
