Spicy and Tender Crock Pot Pork Chops

"These are the most tender chops I have ever had! I usually cook some apples to go on top of the chops and use the sauce in this recipe to put over rice. I found this recipe in one of my favorite Cookbooks 'Fix It and Forget It.' Hope you enjoy!"

    This recipe is identified as "Spicy" and Tender Pork Chops. Where exactly does the spicy come from? I guess I'm overlooking something.

    This does, as Mellisa says, produce tebder chops. I made 5 chops. I liked the sound of the apples but instead of cooking them separately I peeled, cored and quartered 2 medioum apples and put them in with the chops-excellent. I mixed all the sauce ingredients before pouring over the chops. I was a bit short on the green pepper so I decided to add a bit more heat and added a small tin (apprx 2 oz) of sliced jalapeno peppers. Loved the end result.Served with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli steamed carrots I froze the remaining 4 chops with some sauce and after freezing them individually I vaccum sealed them in bags, again individually. Thanks Mellisa for a great recipe that I will be enjoying several times over

    I had 5 center-cut pork chops and made this exactly as posted. These are more sweet than spicy, with a barbecue sauce flavor. Next time, I might add some tabasco or cayenne to actually make it spicy! Thanks for sharing.

    I had to fend off the family and guard the crockpot to keep them from opening it up and trying to sneak a taste. The pork chops were tender and the juices from the pot were terrific poured over steamed rice. This is a definite keeper.

    I used very thick chops, and really liked the flavor of the sauce. I think next time I'll cut the chops into smaller pieces so the sauce penetrates a little better into the meat. The only change I made was using some red bell pepper and some chopped jalapeno in place of the green pepper, just because that's what I had. I'll leave more jalapeno seeds in next time to give it more of a 'kick'. Thanks for a winner!

    Like Bergy, I added the apples (peeled, cored, chopped) to the pork chops while they cooked. I omitted the hot peppers, but did add a bit of chilli powder to the sauce - just to taste. WOW! We love it over rice or with mashed potatoes or wild rice and veggies (green beans, fresh cooked cabbage, carrots, broccoli, etc.). Even the small fries in the family asked for seconds! The receipt also works very well in the "Miracle Cooker" or other fast/pressure cooker systems. Mmmm, Mmmm good! Thanks, Missy. PS I've substituted cheaper cuts of pork and it works with equally great results - so, if you find a sale or are trying to save a few dollars with the price of meat these days...just avoid the thin cuts, as they tend to dry out and not be as juicy.

    This was delicious and so easy! Even my kids loved it. The only changes I made were minor. I didn't have any green pepper so I left it out. I used apple cider vinegar instead of regular vinegar. I also put some sliced apple on top since I love the flavor apple gives to pork. Since I missed the "cut-off" time for my crock pot, I made it in my dutch oven and baked it at 300 degrees for 3 hours. I did have to add a little water at one point, but these chops turned out so yummy and juicy. This is a keeper in our house! Thanks!

    These were so yummy! I don't care for pork chops that much but these may have changed my mind. The only changes I made to the recipe is used green bell pepper instead of green pepper and added some red pepper flakes and a clove of minced garlic. I also didn't brown mine. Thanks for a wonderful and now favorite recipe.

    I used 2 3/4 lbs. assorted chops, a red pepper instead of green, unsalted tomato sauce, 1 1/2 T. brown sugar, and 1 tsp. salt. After browning the chops, I deglazed the pan with the tomato sauce. Since I have a large, oval cooker that tends to lose moisture, I also added 1/4 cup water. I cooked on high for an hour, and on low for three. I skimmed the fat off the sauce, and thickened in on the stovetop with a mix of 1 T. cornstarch, 1 T. cream, and 1 T. milk. DH couldn't stop eating this! I love finding a luscious crockpot meal. Thanks!
