    LifeIsGood's Note:

    I originally saw this recipe in a magazine and tweaked it so it would be a bit healthier. We think it even tastes better this way. My kids request this recipe A LOT because it reminds them of bbq ribs. The recipe couldn't be easier. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 pork loin chops with bone (I get fairly thick chops so they don't dry out in the crock pot)
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I like to use either canola or olive oil)
    • 2 cups no-sugar-added ketchup (low carb)
    • 1/2 cup packed splenda brown sugar substitute
    • 1 teaspoon hickory-flavored liquid smoke (don't omit this!)


    1. 1
      Sprinkle pork chops with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet, brown the pork chops in oil on both sides.
    3. 3
      In a bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and liquid smoke.
    4. 4
      Pour half of the sauce into the bottom of a slow cooker.
    5. 5
      Top with pork chops and remaining sauce.
    6. 6
      Cover and cook on low for 4-1/4 to 5 hours or until meat is tender.

      WOW and WOW. Very good chops.I love the lower fat and the "healthy" aspect. I used homemade tomatoe puree in place of no sugar catsup as I did not have any. All else was the same. This will definitely be a repeater in my house especially now that toe cooler weather is coming. The sauce itself can be used on other meats so my next try will be chicken breasts.What a treat to come in from working in the garden all day and having dinner all ready to go. Made for AUS/NZ Swap 43

      This is a real nice recipe for chops, and seriously couldn't be easier then putting chops in the pot & coming home to a wonderful, delicious treat. I followed this exactly, except I used regular ketchup, regular brown sugar, and added the onion, and some garlic as suggested by other reviewers. At the end, I put the chops on a warmed plate, and added 1 teaspoon of corn starch with cool water to make a slurry and added to the "gravy" to thicken it a bit, and spooned the thickened sauce onto some rice/ and chops. Delicious! Thank you LifeIsGood!
