We've had some frozen pork chops sitting in our freezer for quite some time so I decided to seek out a use for them this week. I've always kinda avoided pork chops because growing up they were always so boring and blah. I decided to take plain bbq pork chops up a notch.
Honey BBQ Pork Chops
1 cup bbq sauce
1/4 cup honey
Spray crock wtih cooking spray to minimize scorching. I find bbq sauce tends to scorch and it's just a pain in my A to get it off. Or a pain in Jeffrey's A since he tends to do dishes... Anyway, i digress. Lay the pork chops in the bottom of the slow cooker. Mix bbq sauce and honey together and pour mix over top of chops. Be sure they are covered in the liquid-not submerged, but covered. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Ugh. this didn't turn out great. The pork was too dry and no bueno. It wasn't horrible, but Jeffrey didn't even have seconds so I consider that a fail! :) Next time, I'll seriously cut the cooking time in half. I can check the pork to see if it's done, but there is nothing I can do once it's too done. Also, I couldn't taste the honey at all, so next time I'd double the amount of honey in the recipe. This recipe has potential...it just needs a bit of tweaking.
I forgot to download the pics from my camera, but wanted to get this posted today...so i'll add a pic or two tonight. We had carrots with the pork chops, but next time I'd probably just dump some frozen veggies and rice into the crock in the last hour or so of cooking and be done with it!
**does anyone have a good stuffed pork chop recipe for the crockpot?**
