Just a thought…..do you think you could sprinkle blue cheese crumbles on the chops at the end? Your website is awesome. 🙂

Could this be prepared the night before and cooked in the morning?

Great idea on the liners! I had prepared the crock the night before with no trouble but I like the liner idea better because it will take less room in my always-crowded fridge. Thank you.

Hi!! This sounds wonderful. What do u think of trying it with an apple ale or pumpkin beer. Would u be able to taste it?

I’m thinking about making these but using hard cider instead of beer. I like the flavor of hard cider better. Do you think it would be an okay swap for this recipe?

I have a beer in my fridge from a year ago…Would it still be good to use? Thank you!

Nicole, most beer made in america is pasturized so it lasts like pop, the technical shelf life is on it, but it really should be just fine. Open it up and take a sniff. If it goes bad it really does have a “skunky” smell. At that point dump it.

Could I do this without browning the pork chops first? Just put it all in the crockpot?

How would bone in chops effect the recipe? I have some in the freezer and would like to use them

Having a brain fart. Trying to decide what to make with them. I used a shock top honey crisp apple wheat beer. Smells delish.

Can you add potatoes/root veggies to the crockpot with the meat?

These are absolutely delicious, they went down a storm last night! I’d only cook them for four hours next time and I’ll get the pan a bit hotter before I brown them. Also, going to try apple cider next time, the pork and apple combo is so good I can’t see how it wouldn’t work!

Are the chops tender? Sounds delish but have problems getting meat tender enough to chew without drying out?

I have a 6 qt crock pot. Could I double the recipe and if so, how long should I leave it to cook?

Did you broil your chops before you took this picture?? I’m sure like the chicken it won’t come out so toasty brown right out of the crock pot. Thanks.

I have a casserole recipe for layered prepared stuffing, browned chops, and Apple pie filling …how could this be adapted to a slow cooker?
Also, could you please add the suggested crock pot size to the recipes….thank you.

I have it in the crock right now. Chops aren’t completely covered. Is that a problem?

The recipe sounds great. Can’t wait to make it! You have a lot of patience because some of these questions are brainless!

I’m not a fan of ketchup. Is it possible to use without, or will it not be as tender? Or is there a substitution?

I brown the chops as soon as I get home ftom the store. Then package and freeze them. That way I can just pull them out of the freezer and dump them in the slow cooker before I go to work in the morning. Since they are frozen I double the cooking time. That way they can cook all day while I am at work. I usually always use frozen meat because I want it to cook all day. But I prep and repackage all the meat before I freeze it.

Is there enough liquid for this recipe? I just hesitate that only 3/4c for 4 pork chops would dry up quickly?

Taran

I’m assuming those calories are for 4 chops, correct? Please say yes 🙂

I have made this a few times. Super good. But I forgot this time it wasn’t a low cool for 8 hrs recipes. It’s 4-5. So I made it this morning ready to be turned on in the crockpot at 9:40am. Do I just turn it to warm around 3? Will it get too mushy? We don’t eat till 5:30-6. :-/

Hi, I’m wanting yo use your recipe but unfamiliar with American liquid measurements. Is 3/4c referring to American cup or is it a part of a litre? Guess T is a tablespoon. Thanks

I love this with pork chops and added a little bit of red pepper flakes. Now I am going to try it with chicken breasts. Last time I also cut a hole in cooking bag and then thickened the juice with corn starch. Delicious
