Slow Cooker Orange Pork Chops

Five days out of seven, I’m lazy. By seven o’clock, I just want to watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune while food magically presents itself to me.

[Yes, Jeopardy. Yes, Wheel of Fortune. Yes, I’m apparently sixty seven years old.]

And I’m OK with it!

So, to simplify life I often find myself relying on my slow cooker.  The fact that this recipe relies on the world’s easiest method of cooking, plus the fact that it only requires 5 ingredients makes it a winner.

I hope you get to try it some time! But be sure to eat it while watching Jeopardy & Wheel of Fortune. You know. For the full effect.

Slow Cooker Orange Pork Chops

This recipe originally called for country style pork ribs, but my freezer provided me only with pork chops, so I improvised. You can find it here, from Amy at Very Culinary!

Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 4-5 hours (high)

Ingredients
• 3 pounds of boneless pork chops
• 1 jar (10 ounce) orange marmalade
• 1 jar (8 ounce) hoisin sauce
• 1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
• 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Directions
1 – Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium; coat with cooking spray. Brown the chops on both sides, and place them in a 4-quart slow cooker.

2 – In a medium bowl, combine marmalade, hoisin sauce, garlic, and sesame oil. Pour 3/4 of the sauce over the chops in the slow cooker and stir to coat the meat with sauce.

3 – Cover and cook on high heat for 4 hours. Baste with the juices a couple of times.

4 – Transfer meat to a serving platter and spoon the remaining 1/4 of the original sauce onto the chops.

Enjoy!
