Slow-Cooker Smothered Pork Chops

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.

Enjoy!
