Slow Cooker Pork Chop & Sweet Potato Casserole

Marcia McCance


I'm finding a lot of really great recipes in my mother's nice little 80 page pocket sized Crock-Pot Cook Book -- which appears to have come with the appliance she bought in the 70's. Not like the dozen recipes you get now-a-days.

This one sounds really good... I have not tried it, but I think I may in the not distant future.

This recipe is for a 4 qt slow cooker, reduce quantities for smaller one, and increase for larger. The cooking times remain the same.

Slow Cooker Crock Pot


6 to 8
pork chops
to taste
salt and pepper
2 medium
sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced, (can use white potatoes if prefer)
1 large
onion, sliced
1 large
green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 tsp
leaf oregano
1/4 tsp
whole thyme
1 lb-can of tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

Trim visible fat from the pork chops, season with salt and pepper and brown in skillet to remove excess fat. Drain and place in slow cooker.
NOTE: From reading the guidelines in the slow cooker cook book, you do not have to brown the meat before adding to the pot -- a time saver -- but you will need to remove the excess grease from the pot, later, after it is cooked.
Add remaining ingredients in order listed.
Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours (High: 3 to 4 hours) Adjust seasonings to taste before serving.
Alternatives: You can also cut the pork into 1.5-inch pieces and cube the sweet potatoes if you like
Flavor Alternatives: You may substitute below for above spices:
1/2 Cup unsweetened orange juice
2 shallots, green ends chopped
1 tsp cumin seed
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
