An easy way to have a great meal and a great smelling house as it cooks while you are out. I have used half frozen chops in a pinch by just briefly defrosting in the microwave. The sauce is great if you make it the night before but is almost as good made the day of - just don't forget the smoke to give it a great BBQ flavour. You can also brown the chops the night before so you only have to spend 1 minute getting your chops ready to go in the crock pot the day that you are cooking. I like to serve these chops over rice with veggies on the side. I'm sure that this would work great with a pork roast or tenderloin, beef or chicken. Enjoy!
