Slow Cooker Stuffed Pork Chops and Spicy Brussel Sprouts



Oh my, tender slow cooked stuffed pork chops and spicy brussel sprouts. 

I'm always looking for another way to make pork chops.

My husband likes Shake N Bake. 

Um, No.  Have you ever read the label on that?  Way too high in sodium!

So here is what was on the menu tonight. I like simple meals!!

Ingredients

  • 2 large pork chops (bone-in would be better but I didn't have that in the freezer)
  • 1 box Stove Top Stuffing (yes, this is what he likes)
  • 3/4 cup white wine or unsalted chicken stock
  • 1 - 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions


  1. Cook the stuffing and set aside. 
  2. Slice the pork chop to create a good size pocket. 
  3. Salt and pepper the chop. 
  4. Stuff the pork chop. 
  5. Place the chops into skillet and get them golden brown. Use tongs to flip carefully. 
  6. Place the chops into a slow cooker and pour the wine or stock over them. 
  7. Cook on low for 8 hours. 




Lovely, delicious, tender pork chops! My husband ate the rest of the stuffing!!! He just cracks me up with that stuffing.
