TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER BROWN SUGAR GARLIC PORK CHOPS
- Prep time: To get the pork chops ready for the slow cooker add some vegetable oil to a pan and put it over medium heat. Add the pork chops and season them with salt and pepper. Brown the pork chops on both sides for about 2-3 minutes. Searing the pork chops in advance will make sure they get properly cooked through and give them a nice crispy outside.
- Cooking time: Place the pork chops in the slow cooker and rub the garlic and brown sugar over the top of the pork. Cook on low heat for 6 hours. You can decrease the cook times by increasing the heat of the slow cooker. However, the pork will turn out the most succulent and flavorful cooked low and slow.
