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.

How to Make Slow Cooker Pork Chop & Sweet Potato Casserole


  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
