{Slow Cooker} Honey Dijon Pork Chops and Apples

I love simple meals...and of course delicious too, and this one really fits that bill. 

We eat a lot of chicken, and occassionally we eat the 'other white meat'.

After getting a very good deal on some boneless pork chops, I was happy to come across this delicious meal at Eat at Home.

Tiffany is my kind of gal (and her last name, King, is my maiden name, so I'm naturally partial to her=)  I think we share taste buds as she surely shares MY kind of recipes.

(Did you know I had to humble myself to marry my husband?  I went from a KING to a BAKER). {grins}

Tiffany also has her own eBook - Feasting in 15. Check it out - it has lots of ideas for speedcooking weeknight dinners. 
OH SO YUM too!

I LOOOVE pork chops with apples too, so I didn't have to think twice about trying this simply satisfying meal.

The recipe also calls for onions, but you can leave them out if you don't care for them.

The only thing I changed was adding a little liquid to the crockpot - apple juice, but Tiffany insists it isn't necessary.



SLOW COOKER HONEY DIJON PORK CHOPS AND APPLES (& ONIONS TOO)

1-1/2 lbs. pork chops, boneless or bone-in
5 small apples, peeled and sliced
1 onion, sliced
3 Tb. honey
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
generous grinds of black pepper
(we put pepper on just about everything!)
1/3 c. apple juice

Place pork chops in bottom of crock. In small bowl, combine honey, dijon, salt and pepper together. Pour over apples and onions;toss to coat.  Place apples and onions on top of chops in slow cooker. 
Add apple juice. Cook 5 - 6 hours on high or 7 - 8 hours on low.

(I had thin pork chops and they were ready after 4-1/2 hours...on high).

I served it over rice.

Yield: 4 - 6 servings
