Slow Cooker Smothered Pork Chops

Slow Cooker Smothered Pork Chops

After I tried the recipe a reader sent for Chris’ Pork Chops I decided I’d try my hand at slow cooker smothered pork chops and they didn’t disappoint! Some of you maybe like me and just want to dump ingredients in the crock pot and leave it and may wonder why the many steps in this recipe. Well I do feel like there’s a time and place for longer crock pot recipes.

At 5 o’clock Tim walks through the door and the kids both need my attention it seems. Often times Tim and I just sit and chat until around 530 when I exclaim, “I need to think about dinner!” Now we don’t do crock pot meals every night of the week but one like this is good for those nights when I had energy earlier on and could do some cooking and then I leave the pot to cook it the rest of the way!  I hope you enjoy Slow Cooker Smothered Pork Chops as much as we all did!

Crock Pot Pork Chops


  • 4 pork chops
  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 TBS butter
  • 2 TBS flour
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots (about 2 large)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream or half & half
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground dried sage
  • 2-3 tablespoons white Roux


  1. Mix the herb rub together and spread over the pork chops. Sear the pork chops in a skillet for 5 minutes turning once.
  2. Make the Roux: melt 3 TBS butter in a small saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons of flour over medium heat until it mixes well. Whisk with a fork, then remove from heat.
  3. For the cream sauce: saute shallot and garlic in the olive oil. Add chicken stock and reduce by 1/2 over medium heat. Add the cream, ground rosemary and sage. Let simmer and thicken after you add the Roux.
  4. Place the pork chops in the crockpot and then pour the sauce over the top. Cook in crock pot 5 hours on low, or 2.30 hours on high.
