Slow Cooker Maple Dijon Pork Chops
These super easy and tasty pork chops are slow cooked in a sweet and tangy sauce made from maple syrup and Dijon mustard.
- 4- bone-in pork chops at least one inch thick
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion sliced thick
- 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
Heat 2 tablspoons of olive oil in a large skillet.
Season pork chops with salt and pepper (I omit the salt but add to your personal tastes)
Brown pork chops in a large skillet, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet, and place pork chops at the bottom of slow cooker.
Top with the sliced onion.
In a small bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Pour on top of pork chops and onions.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours, depending on how thick your pork chops are. Mine took about 4 hours and 20 minutes. Remember, boneless and thinner chops will cook quicker.
