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 am with reviewer Marcia Smith on this one. It was not bad but I don't think it deserves the highest rating on the site. I tried it and followed the recipe faithfully and was quite disappointed. I tasted as I thought it would ...sweet and somewhat ho-hum. The best that can be said for it is that it is easy and for those with weak teeth, the chops are tender. I would far rather marinate a boneless pork steak and grill it. I have given it one star and am not sure it deservs that. I prefer to give good reviews but this recipe has been so over-rated that I felt I should help to correct the balance.
I gave this recipe 1 star because the pork chops were tender. The sauce was way to sweet. I would not make these again. I threw all the left-overs away. Sorry!
What did I miss? I made this recipe and was dissappointed in the results. I told my husband, someone hasn't had good porkchops. Yet, as I read the comments, I wonder what I missed. I used butterfly cut 1" center loin chops. Sorry--can't say we enjoyed these or that they are worth sharing. Too soupy on the veggies and broth.
