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.

How to Make Slow Cooker Pork Chop & Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add remaining ingredients in order listed.
  4. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours (High: 3 to 4 hours) Adjust seasonings to taste before serving.
  5. Alternatives: You can also cut the pork into 1.5-inch pieces and cube the sweet potatoes if you like
  6. 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
