This is THE most fabulous pork chop recipe I have ever tasted in my life. That is not an over statement! At the first taste of this very tender, moist chop, my husband declared it as the best pork he has ever tasted. Now, that comes from a man that always has to put barbecue sauce on every piece of pork he has, regardless of the way it is prepared. This time though, NO barbecue sauce was brought to the table! : ) The spice in this recipe are right on target. The pork is the most tender I have ever tasted. There is not one thing I would change about this recipe, it is perfect! I used 6 rather thick boneless pork loin chops and added a generous amount of mushrooms. For the gravy that was perfection, I did not have any cornstarch on hand, so I subbed flour (however, I know the cornstarch would have worked just as well). I will definitely make this one again and again and again. Thanks so much, Caroline Cooks!
This is one of the best crockpot recipes I have ever had! I added a clove of garlic, minced and used thick cut loin chops. The sauce thickened with half and half (I used fat-free) was very rich and creamy. I also used the bay leaf and fresh parsley. The only change I would make is maybe add another onion next time, just because we love caramelized onions. This one will be used in the RV also, where I do a lot of crockpot cooking.
This is sooo good! Loved it with mashed potatoes and the sauce. Will try 2 T. cornstarch next time as we like sauces a little thicker. The meat was so tender and nice, didn't need a knife.
This is a GREAT crock pot recipe because it had wonderful flavors even after cooking for so long. It's also great because it would be fantastic to serve to dinner guests. I made this recipe as posted except I used a 3# pork sirloin roast. I cut the roast into 5 thick chops and it worked out well. As with so many people's crock pots, mine runs hot so after 5 hours on low, I turned it down to warm until I was ready to make the sauce. The leftovers are in the freezer since I'm cooking for 2 now and we look forward to having it again soon.
I'm so glad to have stumbled across this recipe. I used boneless pork loin chops and caramelized a bit more of the onions. I used 2% milk with the cornstarch and it worked out well. I did add the whole 8oz. of mushrooms since we like them. My pork was done to perfection in 7 hours. The gravy was amazing on potatoes. My husband really loved this and said to put this on make again list.
Good recipe! However, I did not have to wait 7-8 hours. It only took 4 hours on low in the crock pot. I guess it depends on on thick your pork chops are ( used 5 chops with bone in, just because I like the flavor of the bones). I did add a clove a garlic and deglazed it with red wine. Toward the end with I was adding the cornstarch mix, I had to add a little more salt (seasoning salt). Otherwise, it was really tasty:)

Without a doubt the best comfort pork chop dinner that our family had. 5 thumbs up!!! We will have this again.
Excellent recipe! I thought my kids were going to swallow their plates these were sooooooo good! This meal was literally inhaled :) We had with mashed potatoes and peas with sauteed mushrooms. My boys both asked when we were having these again, so I guess they hit the spot!
mmm Caroline the sauce on these pork chops is outstanding! DH loved them with mashed potatoes. I used olive oil instead of the butter and 2% milk for the half and half; and a crisp white wine to deglaze the pan; also used fresh parsley from the garden. Served them with baby carrots. A wonderful meal that will be repeated many times. Thanks for sharing!
