It’s no secret that I love my crockpots, and if a recipe can be converted to cook in the crockpot, then that’s more than likely what I’m going to do. So here’s how I make smothered pork in the crockpot. It’s simple as can be, but full of flavor, and sooo tender.
I happened to be using the end portion of a whole pork loin, which wouldn’t have cut into chops very well, so I cubed it. I actually prefer the meat that way, then you can just spoon everything over your rice or whatever you choose to serve it with. You can also just use pork chops if you prefer. It’ll all taste the same!
Make a nice big salad and some garlic bread to go with, and you’ve got a perfect wholesome meal with very little effort involved!
Crockpot Smothered Pork
- 1 1/2 lbs pork chops or cubed pork
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1 Tb brown sugar
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2 Tb butter
- 2 Tb cornstarch
Season the pork with salt and pepper to taste. Place in the crockpot along with the beef broth, brown sugar, and onion. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or so.
Stir in the butter. Combine the cornstarch with a little cold water, and add to the crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 15-20 minutes or until the mixture has thickened up enough to your liking. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes, or noodles.
