It's Crock-Pot Season ~ Pork Chops & Gravy

Football season has begun and so that means it's crock-pot season in my kitchen.

I'm not a big fan of cooking in a crock-pot but during football it's all I've got unless I want to come home and make a quick meal of hamburgers and fries every night. Which is fine other than I get sick of quick meals. I want something good, oven baked & wholesome. We have a few family favorites that I make on a regular basis in the crock-pot but I am always looking for new recipes to add a little excitement to our table.

I tried this pork chop & gravy recipe the other day and it was pretty tasty. I whipped up some mashed potatoes so we could smother them with gravy and threw some green beans on the side.

Crock-Pot Pork Chops & Gravy

8 pork chops
salt & pepper
2 tbsp. oil
2 (10 3/4oz.) cans of cream of mushroom soup
1 large onion, diced
12 oz. can of evaporated milk

Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper and brown in oil.
Once browned, place in a greased crock-pot.
In a bowl, whisk together the soup, onion & milk and pour over pork.
Place lid on and cook on high 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

I didn't have the canned milk or the cream soup here at the house so I made mine with homemade versions of both. You can find the recipe that I use for evaporated milk HERE and the cream soup mix HERE at Keepin It Simple.

That sounds like one I'll be trying:) I have a few crock pot recipes I like to use, they are so simple and it's still ALOT healthier than something fried or takeout:) Hope your having a wonderful day!
