Preparation Time15 min

Slow Cooker Time HIGH3 hr



  • 4 center cut pork chops
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken or beef broth
  • 1 medium onion, chopped


  1. Place flour, poultry seasoning and salt into a zip-top plastic bag and shake to mix. Add chops and shake until they are lightly coated.

  2. Heat a heavy skillet large enough to hold all the chops over medium high heat, adding the oil until it shimmers. Place the chops into the pan and saut 2 3 minutes per side until golden brown.

  3. Remove chops from the pan and, still on the heat, add 2 tablespoons flour mixture from the plastic bag into the skillet, stirring a few seconds to cook the flour. Add about cup of the broth to the skillet and cook and stir to lift any browned bits from the pan. Add the remaining broth to the pan and turn off the heat. Reserve the remaining flour mixture for later.

  4. Place the onion into the bottom of the slow cooker and lay the pork chops on top. Pour the liquids from the pan over the chops, cover and cook on high 2 hours.

  5. Open the cooker and ladle out about cup of the resulting juices into a small bowl. Stir in the remaining flour mixture from the plastic bag into the juices until completely smooth. Return this mixture to the slow cooker stirring to mix. Cover and continue to cook 30- 45 more minutes.

  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, using the sauce in the pot as gravy.

One of my favorites to make on a regular basis! So delicious.

Pork chops are one of my favorite. I can have them almost anyway imaginable. My favorite, smothered. I will make smothered chops at least once a week and to now have a slow cooker recipe, I kind of feel like I can prepare them more often.

With just seven ingredients and two hours later I can have wonderful meal such as this. How can you turn down a recipe of this caliber? With simple ingredients that are not really unhealthy this recipe offers a great alternative way to prepare pork chops.

This is a really good basic recipe. I would spice it up with a bit more pepper and would also prefer a slightly thicker sauce, easily achieved by adding more flour. I would also add a couple of cored, peeled and quartered apples.
