Crock Pot Chili Pork Chops.....a Must Try!

"I found this recipe on the web somewhere and decided to try it. It is absolutely wonderful and the meat just falls off the bones. As my husband describes it "they are succulent!" This is a must in our family at least every other week!"

  • Cook onions in oil until lightly brown.
  • Add garlic, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, water, ketchup and salt and pepper.
  • Cover and simmer the sauce for 10 minutes.
  • Arrange pork chops in crock pot, pour sauce over the chops.
  • Cover and cook on LOW HEAT for 6-7 hours.
  • I find that the longer you cook them, the more tender they are.
  • I normally serve them with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. I put the sauce over the mashed potatoes(yummy!).

    Do you put the garlic cloves in whole or chop, dice, mince, press, etc... them?

    I noticed that another reviewer served this with rice. Can you just add rice to the slow cooker? If so, when would you add it?

    I did it the lazy way and for 2 people. I agree that the sauce is very good over potatoes so:<br/>I cut up 3 potatoes and used about 1 cup chopped onion and put into bottom of crockpot. I put the pork chops on top. Then I mixed the sauce ingredients ( I left out olive oil obviously and used minced garlic in replacement of the cloves)and poured over pork chops. Then I cooked on low for 8 hours while I was at work. Very good! I threw a corn steamer in the microwave and we were ready to eat!! Thanks for posting!!

    I thought this recipe was unbelievably good! BUT, I did add a whole lot more spices than the actual recipe calls for, because I'm big on flavor! I used a whole diced onion, 4-5 garlic cloves, double the chili powder, cumin, a little cinnamon, and then I ended up adding about 1 tbsp. brown sugar to cut the sourness of the ketchup & worcestershire sauce. The sauce was perfect with the fried potatoes I served on the side. Will definitely be making this again & again.

    So nice to find a pork chop recipe for the crock pot that doesn't involve a can of 'cream of' soup! Made this tonight & really liked it. Made very few changes - browned the onions in bacon fat because it was there, and I only did 1/4 cup of water after reading the other reviews. IMO 1/4c water was plenty. I did add just a little bit of cumin because I like the smokey taste it gives - everything else was as written. I had 4, 1" boneless chops & they were fork tender at 5 hours on low. I served these over homemade cornmeal waffles & it was terrific. Little hint of heat, nice flavor & a change from the same ol' same ol'. Thanks!

    These were so unbelievably fall apart delicious!I don't normally even buy pork chops anymore because I can never get them tasty or tender enough.Problem solved!I used 4 pork chops,no bone.I cooked them on high for 2 hours and then on low for 2 hours.I served them with fried rice and the leftover sauce was good on the rice also.

    This is TASTY! The only measurements that I actually made (specifically) were that of the liquids (and, I split the water with beer!). I literally, honestly dumped a lot of indicated (and reviewer-suggested) spices in a saucepan with the water(/beer) and ketchup. From there on .. I took the "lazy" route. I chopped one whole onion and three red potatoes, stuck them in my crockpot and topped them with four thin-cut, bone-in chops. I cooked them on 'low' for nearly half of the indicated time (on account of their thickness), and they plucked straight from the bone. I DO wish i would have had some brown sugar, as I believe that could have taken the sauce to another level, but it was definitely delicious and I will definitely be making these again. Thank you!

    Just put this in the crock pot. My house already smells amazing! I added another tsp of chili powder, and I used chicken thighs instead of pork. The sauce tastes amazing! I'm sure I'll LOVE this. Thanks!

    Awesome!! I shredded left ovr's the next night and mixed w sauce and made sloppy joes n homeade fries!! I used boneless chops and will use bone in next time to compare! I also used chili sauce instead of the ketchup and chili powder (pretty much the same thing) and I used white zin instead of water and browned chops!! I also used my Le Cruset pan instead of cooking in crock pot because I ran out of time and really wanted to make it, it was fab... will def make again...

    Made this for dinner last night, the meat was fall apart tender but the flavor of the sauce did not penatrate into the meat. Next time I will use tomato paste instead of ketchup. I give this a 3 star, my wife gives it a four star, so our overall rating is 3.5 star.

    Jen this is a good starter recipe. I followed it but added more chili powder and garlic. I also added green pepper and used beer in place of water. The sauce had great flavor and went through the chops. I cooked the chops for 4 hours on low.

    The sauce was very tasty, I thought it was more of a BBQ flavor than a chili flavor. I used eye of round beef steaks instead of pork chops.
