I was just talking to Josh, our front end guy here at the station and he was talking about how much he and his wife love using the slow cooker for meals, I never think of it, but it is a great way to get dinner out of the way without any just walk in the door chaos after work. So something really simple is pork chops and taters in the slow cooker, the cat could probably get this started for you while you're out.

I'm not sure what the rule of thumb is or if there really is a rule of thumb when it comes to using the slow cooker but half the time I brown my meat and the other half I don't cause if I'm gonna take the time to brown it shouldn't I just make dinner in the skillet? Seems like cooking dinner twice, anyway, with this recipe, you can brown the chops first if you want.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

6 bone-in pork chops, 1 can of cream of condensed cream of mushroom soup, half a cup of water, 1/2 a cup of milk, 1 medium onion sliced thin, 3 medium potatoes thinly sliced and salt and pepper

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

Mix together the soup, water and milk in a small bowl. Add enough of the soup mixture to just coat the bottom of the crock pot, lay the potatoes on top followed by the onions and pork chops. Pour the rest of the soup mixture over the top, sprinkle with salt and pepper and set on low for 5-8 hours (great to prep the night before and plug in the slow cooker in the morning just before you leave for work)
