Crock Pot Pork Chops With Apricots and Prunes

Total Time

Dried fruits, such as apricots and prunes, have a lot of iron, and the iron is more readily absorbed when combined with vitamin C. This dish has it all. A nice dish to come home to.

Made this yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was in the crockpot on low for 6 hours and the meat was tender but not falling apart. I used boneless country style pork chops, fresh frozen apricots. Next time I may cut back a little on the orange juice. Lovely easy, tasty recipe Thanks Miss Annie

Can you say foodgasm?!? I followed this recipe to the letter and I wouldn't change a thing. I made this for my parents-in-law visiting America from England for the very first time. They loved it! Thanks so much for winning me points with my MIL!

This is a great recipe but due to lack of all the ingredients I had to modify slightly. I couldn't find apricots so substituted it with two granny smith apples, or cinnamon. I used prune juice instead of orange juice as I found the pitted prunes were already quite sweet. All in all a HUGE success and will definitely be making this again (and again, and again!!)
