This was soooo good! I meant to review this 2 years ago. I used to make this dish all the time when me and my husband first got married. I served it over mashed potatoes each time. I always cut the savory (isn't stocked in my pantry) and instead of canned mushrooms I use fresh. This dish is our favorite pork chop recipe!! Thanks!!!

My favorite recipe for cooking pork chops in a crockpot. I thought I had reviewed this, but I guess I didn't (sorry!)

I have been making this for years - the family loves it! I have always followed the recipe exactly and it turns out perfect every time! Thanks for an easy recipe!
