Crock Pot Pork Chops with Ginger-Apple Chutney


How about a set and forget meal for the weekend? I’m thinking a hearty, comforting meal after a day spent outside with the family enjoying the beautiful fall weather. Sound good? These pork chops are that meal. Place them in the crock pot at the beginning of the day. Have fun during the day. Don’t worry about what to fix for supper. Make some rice and veggies. Take out the pork chops. Supper is served. That easy.

Oh, and the prep work is minimal, too. So don’t worry about getting up early to get everything in the crock pot on time. These chops are juicy and tender with a slight kick from the white pepper that is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the apples and cranberries. Yes, they are just plain good. . .and easy. . .and convenient. . .and well, just plain good. :)

The recipe below is for two people, but it can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate more servings. So go ahead. Enjoy your weekend and these pork chops! :)
