Yum! I was looking for a recipe like this-it was perfect! It tastes like ribs and that is what I was hoping for. I used Emeril's Essence to season my chops in place of the seasoned salt. I added a finely minced shallot along with the garlic and added a few tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. I used bone-in center cut pork loin chops because ribs have bones and I think it's tastier with the bone-in. I just bought some smoked paprika and was so happy to find a recipe to use it in! Thanks for a great recipe-my husband loved it too! I served it with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Something that is this easy shouldn't taste this good! P.S. I think the amount of brown sugar and liquid smoke is perfect!
made this, used walmart thick cut pork chops (no bone) - made the sauce the night before (I also added a 4-5 second squirt of honey (not sure it matters to do night before) - probably didn't need as much pepper in the sauce itself .... after 5hrs on low, in the 5 qt. crock pot - it was 210 maybe more.. and break apart tender... i also used emeril Essence instead of seasoning salt (as I think seasoning salt is quite 'salty'... browned them for ~5 minutes on each side .... no water needed in the crock, never opened the lid once... after 5 hours exactly - i put on the Broiler of the Oven, 2nd rack and let it warm up for 3-4 minutes, cracked open the door -then put them in there on top of the broiler pan.. and after about 5 minutes the sauce started to get a bit of a crust and turn black in spots... probably could have gone longer if you like a real black crust (and I'm positive it would NOT dry the pork chops out if you tried this.. two picky kids loved it, and gobbled it up like it was the best thing they've ever had...
key was to broil at the end to get the crust and thicken up the sauce (even though it was a lot more thick sauce then a lot of stuff from the crock pot...) - have found a new way to make all sorts of meat in the crock pot... don't skip the broil addition... also think you could use your favority bbq sauce and get similar results..
I was very happy to come home from work and find part of my meal done. The pork chops turned out very tender! I had a lot of sauce, so I may reduce that next time. This is a very good tasting and easy recipe. Thanks for sharing! Made for Market tag game.
This was an easy, tasty pork chop recipe. As I only had two large chops, I halved the sauce ingredients (keeping the original 1 tsp of liquid smoke and cutting the brown sugar to 1 Tb as Sue L suggested, as we dont like our sauces very sweet). This seemed to work well. I used smoked Spanish paprika as suggested. I cooked on low for 5 hours and my chops came out moist and tender. Thanks!
We cooked this on high in the crock pot for 3 hours since I had a medical appt. today and couldn't start this before. The sauce was a little sweet for our tastes, but the meat was really juicy and tasty as could be. I also didn't taste much of the smoke so would add more of that next time, along with cutting the sugar by about half. Thanks for sharing! Made for the Saucy Senorita's ZWT5.
