    Title: Crockpot Smothered Pork Chops
    Categories: Pork, Soups, Herbs, Mushrooms
    Yield: 6 servings

    6 (7 oz ea) bone-in pork loin
    - chops
    1 ts Kosher salt
    2 tb Oil
    3/4 c Beef broth
    10 1/2 oz Can cream of mushroom soup;
    - undiluted
    10 1/2 oz Can cream of chicken soup;
    - undiluted
    2 cl Garlic; minced
    1/4 ts Paprika
    1/4 ts Pepper
    1/2 lb Sliced fresh mushrooms
    1 lg Onion; halved, sliced
    1 tb Cornstarch
    1 tb Cold water

    Pat the pork chops dry and sprinkle with salt on both
    sides. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
    Working in batches, brown the pork chops on both sides.
    (YouaCOre just browning them, not cooking them through.)
    Be sure not to overcrowd the pan, as that will impede
    the browning process.

    NOTE: Boost the savory flavor by browning bacon in the
    pan before starting the chops. Then, remove the bacon
    and brown the chops directly in the rendered fat (omit
    the added oil). If there is too much fat in the pan
    after the chops brown, sop a bit up with a paper towel
    before deglazing.

    Transfer the chops to a 7 quart slow cooker (turned off,
    for now).

    Add the broth to the skillet over medium heat, stirring
    to loosen browned bits from the pan. Whisk in the soups,
    garlic, paprika and pepper.

    Pour the skillet gravy over the chops. Top with the
    mushrooms and onions.

    Cover and cook on low until the meat is tender, five to
    seven hours.

    Remove the chops. In a small bowl, whisk together the
    cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Slowly stir into
    the slow cooker, whisking as you go to prevent lumps.
    Return chops to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high
    for 30 minutes or until the gravy is slightly thickened.
