This was pretty good, especially for crock pot pork chops. They were very tender, and the barley was perfectly cooked. Instead of dicing the onion, I just left it whole so that my picky eaters could get the flavor without the texture of the vegetable. I halved this because my family is small, but I wish I had kept the original amount of barley -- if you're serving six, consider doubling it, or your portions will be small.


I made this recipe with 4 chops and there was not enough barley. Next time I will use one cup and perhaps add a cup of carrots the last hour. The pork chops fell apart like pulled pork. Should I have seared them in a pan first?
