Paleo Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Fall is here and I love the idea of warm, comfort food simmering in the crock pot making the house smell delicious.  As I stood at the butcher’s counter today the pork chops seemed to be calling my name, they were 2 inches think (I kid you not) and even when I tried to move down the line to look at the other choices the pork chops remained in view – as if they were choosing me. Tonight I made a gravy out of the remaining juices in the crock pot and served the chops with brocoli and applesauce but there are so many delicious side options – green beans, mashed cauliflowers (like mashed potatoes), sweet potatoes, asparagus, I could go on and on but you are  probably ready to get to the recipe…

  2. Hi Sheila! Thanks for the comment. Yes, 4 hours on high. Do be mindful of these though, my chops were REALLY thick about 1 1/2- 2 inches thick. If yours are thinner cooking time will be less. If you try them let me know what you think. 🙂
