SLOW COOKED MEXICAN PORK CHOPS ~ BLOG 366.107

Have I mentioned how much I’m LOVING my new slow cooker? This was the 3rd recipe I made and so easy! The original recipe called for using a raw salsa and grapefruit juice, but I pivoted and switched to a jar sauce as well as added the Pampered Chef seasoning, sliced onion and additional amounts of juice from the lime and orange to make up for eliminating the grapefruit juice.

SLOW COOKED MEXICAN PORK CHOPS
1 tablespoon avocado oil
2 THICK (1 inch or so) boneless pork chops (bone in add more flavor)
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon Pampered Chef Chile Lime or TexMex seasoning
1 SMALL Vidalia onion, halved and sliced thin
Juice of FRESHLY squeezed lime
Juice of FRESHLY squeezed orange
2/3 cup CHUNKY salsa ( I like PACE restaurant style)

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Season pork chops with FRESH ground sea salt, black pepper and seasoning of choice.
  • Sear chops on both sides quickly.
  • Add chops to slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle onions over chops.
  • Stir together salsa and both juices.
  • Pour over pork chops.
  • Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours until meat is tender.
