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.

4 loin pork chops, about 1/2 lb each
1 tbsp canola oil
1 small onion, sliced thin
2 tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup apple juice
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
Fresh thyme sprigs for garnish, if desired

Trim excess fat from the pork chops.

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add chops and cook until brown, turning to brown evenly. Drain off the fat.

In a slow cooker or crockpot layer the onion and the chops.

Crush the tapioca and combine with the soup, apple juice, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and garlic powder; stir in the mushrooms. Pour the mixture over the chops.

Place lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours. Serve chops with the sauce poured over them. Garnish with the fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.

Note: 6 chops may be used with the remaining ingredients the same.
