This meal is great for days like today. I have to pick up my daughter from her sports practice sometime after 6, then get dinner on the table, eat, and return to her school for a 7:00 parents' meeting.
I am thankful for my rice cooker (it's filled and ready. When I leave to pick her up, I'll turn it on) and for microwave "steam-in-the-bag" broccoli. Those things, and my slow cooker, will allow me to get dinner on the table quickly tonight!
Slow-Cooker Pork Chops
4 boneless pork chops
2 cups barbecue sauce
2 tbl olive oil
Oil a skillet or griddle and brown the pork chops on the outside. Do not cook them all the way through--they'll finish in the slow cooker.
Spread a little of the barbecue sauce over the bottom of the slow-cooker crock. Place pork chops on top. If they overlap, make sure there's some sauce in between the pork chops. Pour the rest of the barbecue sauce over the pork chops.
Cover and cook 1 hour on high, then switch to low for 3 hours.
