For everyone gearing up for back to school, this dinner on the table in a hurry for everyone’s starved, this hearty meal is a great meal for you. You cook potatoes, pork chops and the onions to make the gravy all in the crock pot, and with an additional 10 – 15 minutes, you have the meat and potatoes on the table. Pair with a salad or steam veggie and dinner done in 15 minutes when you get home from work, games, school, whatever!
This is such a super simple supper, the crock pot really does all the work for you
Wash and dice potatoes in a large chunk and place in the bottom of your crock pot, dice up garlic and put on top of potatoes season with salt and pepper. Then place the pork chops on top of the potatoes
Set the crock pot on low for 5 hours or on 3 hours on high.
When you get home, remove the onions and put them in a bowl, remove pork chops and put them on a platter(you’re done with them) drain the potatoes but retain the cooking liquid. Put the potatoes in a bowl, with butter and milk
Now I don’t have a potato masher, so I just took my mixer and turned it on low just to break them up a little, because you want chunky mashed potatoes.
Next, take your onions and put them in a skillet with onions
Stir around and brown the slightly
add flour and stir together and cook until brown then add reserved juices from the crock pot and you’re done!
Crock pot Pork Chops with Garlic Smashed Potatoes
4 bone in pork chops
1 pound of potatoes(I used small red one, cause it’s what I had so I used 8 or 9 use what you have)
3 cloves of garlic
1 small or 1/2 a large onion, sliced
2 cups of chicken broth
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of milk
4 TBSP flour
Start by washing and dicing potatoes in a large chunk and place them in the bottom of the crock pot. Dice garlic and add to potatoes, season with salt and pepper. Add pork chops over the potato garlic mixture then lay sliced onions over pork chops season with salt & pepper and pour in chicken broth. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours. Remove onions, put in a bowl and set aside. Place pork chops on serving platter. Drain potatoes, retaining cooking liquid. Put potatoes in a large bowl, add 1/2 a stick of butter and milk and mash with a potato masher or with you mixer turn on low to break up chunk and incorporate the milk and butter. In a skillet add remaining butter and melt. Add in reserved onions and brown lightly 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in flour to butter mixture and cook 4 or 5 minutes until it starts to brown. Add reserved cooking liquid a 1/2 cup at a time until it is the thickness. I used between a 1/2 a cup to a cup.
