Maple Dijon Pork Chops

Maple

I am always on the look out for a slow cooker recipe that I can actually enjoy. I love the idea of the Crock Pot, but often find that everything seems to take on the texture of mush and has very little real flavor. 

I saw this recipe  on Pinterest, and decided to give it a try. 

My goodness this is delicious! The mister and I both really enjoyed them, and he said they were even more delicious the next day for leftovers at lunch.

Yes. That’s it. Maple syrup, dijon mustard, vinegar, an onion, and pork chops. Simple!

Salt & Pepper your chops and sear in a skillet until golden brown on each side – approx 3 minutes.

Mmmm golden brown. Don’t worry about cooking them – they are going in a crock pot for hours, this is purely about getting a good seared crust and color on these things. Put them into your slow cooker pot when you have accomplished this. 

hdpporkonions

Slice your onion, and toss it into the same skillet in which you seared the chops. We don’t want to let that good pork-y goodness go to waste.

Once your onions have cooked down to translucent, add in the maple syrup, mustard, and vinegar. Mix together. 

Dump over the pork chops in the crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours.
