"A sweet and tangy, affordable and easy recipe. Simple and loaded with veggies. Does not have an overpowering flavor, kid approved. Browning pork chops is an important step, don't skip! I add meat tenderizer to any slow cooker meat, you do not need to add salt, the tenderizer and broth add plenty. Use fresh ground nutmeg! Great with boiled potatoes alongside."

  1. Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and brown outsides of the pork chops thoroughly, about 5 minutes per side.
  2. Mix together the apple juice, cider vinegar, chicken broth, brown sugar, meat tenderizer, garlic powder, nutmeg, ginger, and black pepper in a slow cooker, stirring until the brown sugar has dissolved. Place the pork chops into the liquid. Top the chops with apple, onion, and cabbage. Set the cooker on Low; cook 4 to 5 hours, turning the chops over in the sauce once or twice. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

The pork chops were dry and the cabbage/apple/onion slaw did not taste good. I followed the directions as stated. The best part about the meal was the mashed potatoes I served on the side. I wil...

I don't usually buy pork chops because I really don't like the usual chewy texture. I also don't make many meat dishes in a slow cooker because I don't like the mushy texture. I wanted to find a...

My husband and I made this, thought it was pretty good. Since it was only the two of us we only made 3 pork chops. But, used the same recipe since the other reviews said the chops were dry we th...

I made this exactly as the recipe read except I didn't use the cabbage. We found it bland and the meat turned out dry. Won't make it again.

I have not made this recipe yet but I think the others who have may simply need to adjust the amount of liquid being used - if your crockpot is larger than the traditional 6 quart style or very ...

For a pork dish , it was very easy and flavorful. I did make two small changes.. no meat tenderizer as it makes a lot of people sick. Also, added a half of head of cabbage and let it all cook ti...

I was looking for a way to make a cheap cut of bone in pork chop taste better. This recipe did the trick. I did not use the cabbage or meat tenderizer and I cut back on the sugar a bit. I would ...

Apples, cabbage, and whole pork loin were on sale so I went looking for a recipe using all 3 and found this. Since many reviews complained of dry meat and a lack of flavor I decided to cut a rou...

I followed the recommendations of janet7th. This was fine, but not one that I would make again. I did not use the meat tenderizer and although the pork chops didn't need a knife, they were dry...
