Ingredients

  • 4 large thick-cut pork chops (boneless or bone-in are both fine) (I used boneless pork chops that were about 8 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced
  • Optional garnish: squeeze of fresh lemon juice, chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • In a bowl, whisk together ketchup, broth, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt, chili powder, and ground mustard. Set aside.
  • Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel. Season both sides of the pork chops liberally with salt and pepper. Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add the pork chops to the skillet. Sear both sides of chops over high heat (about 3-5 minutes per side), and then transfer to slow cooker.
  • Pour sauce over the pork chops and add onion on top.

FOR THICK-CUT BONELESS PORK CHOPS:

  • Cover and cook on LOW for about 4-5 hours or on HIGH for about 2-3 hours.

FOR THICK-CUT BONE-IN PORK CHOPS:

  • Cover and cook on LOW for about 6-7 hours or on HIGH for about 3-4 hours.
  • You know that the pork chops are done when they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  • Serve pork chops smothered in onions and sauce, and garnished with a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped fresh parsley.

Notes

If you want to prepare these smothered pork chops in the oven, simply transfer the browned pork chops to a baking dish. Pour the sauce over top, add the sliced onion, and cover with foil. Bake in a 325-degree F oven for 40-45 minutes (for boneless chops).
You can also simmer these pork chops in a skillet on the stovetop. To do so, brown the chops in a large skillet, pour the sauce over top, and add the onion. Place a lid on your skillet and simmer, covered, over LOW heat for 40-45 minutes (for boneless chops).
