Using a slow cooker is a great way to get moist pork chops and you get a gravy too even though it is a Weight Watcher’s recipe.
Pork Chops and Gravy
- 6 (6 oz.) bone-in center cut loin pork chops about 1/2-inch thick
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 (15 oz.) can low-sodium chicken broth
- 1-1/2 tsp. dry mustard
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 2/3 cup flour
Trim any fat from the chops; heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the pork and brown for 5 minutes on each side; place in slow cooker.
Combine the broth, mustard, salt and garlic powder; stir well. Pour the mixture over the chops and cover. Cook on high heat setting for 1 hour; reduce heat to low and cook another 4 to 5 hours. Remember, all slow cookers (like an oven) cook differently so you just have to use your best judgement as to the exact time.
Remove the chops and keep warm. Increase the heat to high. Place flour in a small bowl. Gradually add 1 cup cooking liquid to the flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Stir this mixture back into the slow cooker. Cook, uncovered 10 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Spoon gravy over the chops; season to taste.
