Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours, 12 minutes
Yield: Makes 4 Servings
- 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil, enough to coat the skillet
- 4 center cut pork chops
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 envelope onion soup mix, about 1 ounce
- 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth, low sodium
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons cold water
- 1 tablespoon butter
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Brown the chops, turning to brown both sides, about 5 to 7 minutes total.
Transfer the browned chops to a medium to large slow cooker. In a bowl or 2-cup measure, combine the sloup mix, broth, and water. Pour over the chops.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours, or on HIGH for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
Transfer the pork chops to a serving plate or platter and keep warm.
Strain the juices and skim off fat. Put the juices in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the butter until melted. Pour over the chops and serve.
