Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

As most of you know, several of my grandchildren love to cook.  Today I told my 19-year-old grandson I was going to put some pork chops in the slow cooker.  He immediately headed to the kitchen.  Here is the result and I must say they were juicy, tender, and tasty.  Thank you, Dustin!

4 bone-in pork chops
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1/4 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 tbsp water
1 large garlic clove, minced

Rinse chops and pat dry.  Season with salt, pepper, and garlic salt to suit your taste.  (Dustin loves garlic so we won't recommend the amount!)  Place chops in the cooker.

Pour the barbecue sauce over the chops then use the water to rinse out the measuring cup and pour over the chops.  Sprinkle the minced garlic over all.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high 2 to 4 hours until chops are tender and cooked through (or 4 to 6 hours on low.  Dustins were cooked on low about 2 1/2 to 3 hours and then on high for 1 hour.

For a stronger barbecue flavor, double the amount of barbecue sauce.
