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.

Step-by-Step

  • 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.

  • 3Add remaining ingredients in order listed.
  • 4Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours (High: 3 to 4 hours) Adjust seasonings to taste before serving.
  • 5Alternatives: You can also cut the pork into 1.5-inch pieces and cube the sweet potatoes if you like
  • 6Flavor Alternatives: You may substitute below for above spices:
    1/2 Cup unsweetened orange juice
    2 shallots, green ends chopped
