When I was a kid, my mom made one of my favorite meals in a crockpot. Because I was a kid, I didn’t care to know what was in it, only that it was yummy.
Well, I got a crockpot recently for my birthday. I have never owned one. When I was still physically spry, I loved to cook fancy meals that required much detail and technique.
I have no interest in that anymore, sadly. Hence the reason why I asked my mom and aunt to get me the crockpot, so that I could go back to cooking tasty meals again, but with minimal effort.
My mom told me how to make what she always called Smothered Pork Chops.
Pork chops are relatively cheap, so I purchased a package of 7 thin boneless ones, as my mom recommended. I salted and peppered them as well.
Then I added two cans of cream of chicken soup. No other liquid is required.
That was it. I cooked it on low for 6 hours and viola!
I also made mashed potatoes (real, not boxed) and corn to go with. The gravy goes perfectly with the taters, I must say.
This recipe will be on my dinner rotation all fall and winter long.
(You can also use cream of mushroom or celery soup if you’d like.)
I will be sharing more easy crockpot recipes here as I try them out via my cookbook that I just received. I will also give them an overall yum rating.
