Pork Chop Perfection

So you all will have to forgive me for not having any photos to go along with this recipe. I had some stored on one of our computers, and yet they have miraculously disappeared. You will just have to trust me when I say these healthy crock pot pork chops are the perfect concoction, in spite of the lack of visual confirmation.

Perfect Pork Chops (Adapted from a recipe in the "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook")

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

2 Frozen Pork Chops (I've tried multiple cuts, and both bone-in and boneless. They all seem to work).
2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
1/4 Cup Hot Water
Fresh Parsley
Fresh Ground Pepper

1. Sear both sides of pork chops.
2. Place in slow cooker
3. Dissolve bouillon cubes in hot water
4. Pour water in slow cooker
5. Add fresh parsley and ground pepper to taste
6. Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours
7. Serve and enjoy

As I mentioned, these can be made with bone-in or boneless chops. If you go with bone-in, prepare for the meat to fall tenderly (and deliciously) off the bone. You can also use non-frozen chops, and cook for just under 3 hours. These are a staple in our house. Yes, the bouillon cubes have a LOT of sodium, so you just need to be aware of that as you prepare your side dishes and adjust sodium levels there. The recipe works just fine with 1 cube, but we love the juicy flavor of two.

And because blog posts deserve a explanation as to why you rarely get cooking/recipe posts from me :)

It's a problem...and I'm working to rectify it.
