Here’s a quick and easy recipe with just 5 ingredients that will delight your taste buds: Crock Pot Pork Chops with Raspberry Balsamic Chipotle Sauce.

I got the idea from a great little cookbook, Southwest Slow Cooking, that I picked up last week during an excursion to one of my favorite used book shops.

(After my success with these crock pot pork chops, I’m looking forward to trying a more of the easy, healthy and delicious looking recipes from it.)

I adapted the recipe a bit, cutting WAY BACK on the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, which are VERY HOT and adding in a little balsamic vinegar. (If you are unfamiliar with chipotles in adobo, here’s a great article from Our Best Bites all about them.)

We all loved the flavor of these yummy crock pot pork chops with raspberry balsamic chipotle sauce.

The recipe calls for a lot of jam, but it thins out during cooking. You only need a few tablespoons of sauce to top your pork when serving, so most of the calories/points are left behind in the crock pot.

Enjoy!

Recipe type: Main

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the jam, broth, balsamic vinegar and chipotle.
  2. Season your pork chops well with salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning for pork. (I used Montreal Steak seasoning, which I love on just about everything.)
  3. Grease your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. (I used my 4-Quart Slow Cooker.)
  4. Place two pork chops in your slow cooker and cover with half the raspberry sauce. Stack the reaming two pork chops on top and cover with the remaining sauce.
  5. Cover a cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, until the pork chops are tender.
