Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Onions and Shallots

Day 18


When I first met my husband, his family invited me over for dinner. They made pork chops in the slow cooker with onions and cream of mushroom soup, and they were delicious. But…if you haven’t noticed already…I don’t like to use used canned soups in my recipes. I like to use wholesome and simple ingredients and leave the processed stuff out.  These pork chops are even more tasty than the ones I ate at my in-laws’ for dinner and most importantly they are made from scratch.  Simple ingredients make these delicious and tender slow cooker pork chops a hit for the entire family. Try them tonight, they are so yummy.

Ingredients:

8 pork chops

2 tbs olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 medium yellow onions, chopped

1 shallot, finely chopped

2 tbs all purpose flour

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 1/2 cup of chicken broth

2 tsp frech minced thyme

 

Directions

Add olive oil to heavy medium pan on medium-high heat.
