Slow Cooker Pork Chops & Rice

I created this dish by merging three different recipes and adapted it for the slow cooker.

Ingredients

– 4 bone-in pork chops, about 1-inch thick

– 1 tablespoon olive oil

– Salt and pepper, to taste

– 1 large onion, thinly sliced

– 1 cup long-grain white rice

– 2 cups chicken broth

– 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

– Optional: fresh herbs such as thyme or parsley, for garnish

Preparation

1. Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.

2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the pork chops to the slow cooker.

3. In the same skillet, add the sliced onion and sauté until they are translucent and slightly caramelized. Spread the onions over the pork chops in the slow cooker.

4. Pour chicken broth into the cooker and add Worcestershire sauce, stirring gently to combine everything.

5. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours, until the pork chops are tender and the rice has absorbed the liquid.

6. With 1 hour remaining, stir in the rice and remove the chops and cook on high. Then add pork chops back in and cook until everything is done.

7. Once cooked, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Optionally, garnish with fresh herbs such as chopped thyme or parsley to add a pop of color and fresh flavor.

8. Serve hot with your choice of sides and enjoy a homey, delicious meal that takes you back to the comforts of traditional cooking with a modern twist.
