Since joining TikTok in 2020, I’ve found a handful of homecooks/chefs that I really enjoy watching.
They’re from all over the US (and world, I might add) and make a slew of different cuisines. I follow a guy in Ohio who makes all of his videos so interesting that I want to cook what he’s cooking IMMEDIATELY. There’s a gal in Eastern Europe who is just the queen when it comes to video-taping her cooking.
One of my all-time favorites is a woman in Louisiana, Brittkham. She’s got the best Cajun cooking videos and everything she makes looks absolutely divine.
She posted this crockpot version of smothered pork chops the other day and I knew I had to make it. I love smothered pork chops, but I had never made them in the crockpot before. It seemed like a brilliant idea.
These pork chops are so good. I added a full pound of mushrooms because I love mushrooms; that made this dish even better. I love the “gravy” the pork makes and it’s best served on top of rice, but you could put it over mashed potatoes as well.
Slow-Cooker Smothered Pork Chops
Seasoned pork chops smothered in a mushroom-onion gravy cooked in the slow-cooker.
- Season pork chops with Cajun seasoning and mustard powder, salt and pepper.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Sear pork chops until browned on both sides but not cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove and place in slow cooker.
- In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and mushrooms and saute until tender, about 5-6 minutes.
- Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
- Pour onion mixture over pork in slow cooker. Add soup, water, and broth. Stir until everything is well combined.
- Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
- Make a cornstarch slurry with water and cornstarch. Stir that into slow cooker about an hour before you’re done cooking.
- Serve pork, onion and mushrooms with gravy over rice.
