Maple Dijon Pork Chops

“You can never put too much pork in your mouth as far as I’m concerned” – Lewis Black

Need a new way to bring a boring piece of pork chop to life? Pull out your slow cooker and you’ll be amazed at what can be accomplished! Pork chops are first seared and then dumped into your slow cooker along with a maple syrup infused glaze.  Serve something green on the side and dinner is served!

Taken from  Eat, Live, Run

2 servings

2 large bone-in pork chops
1 large onion, chopped
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup cider vinegar
salt and pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Heat up the oil in a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add the pork chops and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Sear both sides of chops over high heat (about 2 minutes per side) then transfer to your Crock Pot.

Lower the heat to medium low and add the onions. Cook until onions are just starting to soften then add the cider vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes and then pour sauce over chops in the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours. Serve chops drizzled generously with sauce.
