Slow Cooker Pork Chop & Sweet Potato Casserole
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.

1Trim 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.
2NOTE: 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.
