Question about crockpot cooking time ...

If I have a recipe for chicken in the slow cooker but I want to try it with pork chops, do I use the same time of four hours or count on a longer cooking time? Thanks.

  • You'll probably be fine with 4 hours.

  • Sounds wonderful, I bet it will be delicious. I would think it would shred really well! Love the low fat and brown rice!!

  • Thanks. There was a special on pork chops at the store, so I'm getting creative with ways to use them lately.

  • One can cream of mushroom soup. One soup can of salsa. A smidge of water. A pinch of chili seasoning mix. Three boneless pork chops. I usually use chicken breasts or thighs.I cook them in the crockpot for about four hours, then shred the chicken and stir in a third to a half a cup of sour cream and heat through. I serve the meat and sauce over rice with tortillas. My family loves it on a cold night, so I thought I'd try it with pork chops. Not sure if the meat will be shreddable or if we'll end up cutting it up and eating it that way, but it should be good whichever way it turns out, and I figured I'd get through some of these chops. I found them for $2.99 a pound, which is unheard of lately, but we're getting a bit tired of them. I found the recipe on Sparkpeople, and you'd never know it's low-fat. I use reduced calorie soup and sour cream, and nobody has a clue at all. Also brown rice.
