We bought some boneless pork chops on sale, so I was trying to figure out something new to do with them. This is what's cooking in the Crock Pot now:

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
3 pork chops browned in butter. (omg, that smells so good lol)
2 Macintosh apples cubed peeled or not, your choice
1/4 cup of brown sugar or so. I just sprinkled some over the apples.
1 tsp cinnamon (or to taste, I added less)

Put sweet potatoes in crock pot, add pork chops then apples. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon over the top and lightly salt. I also added pepper to the pork chops before browning.

Cook on low for 6 hours. Full meal ready to go. I'm sure it will be delicious! Can't go wrong with apples and pork. :)

It was delicious! Even hubby liked it, lol. Tender pork chops, apples were almost applesauce-like and sweet potatoes were very tender. The apple/brown sugar/cinnamon flavor seeped into the chops. I'll be making that again for sure.

Try maple syrup instead of sugar?

roseanne, that sounds delicious and I'll give it a try soon ~ and since oskar mentions maple syrup, I'll try that too since I've become a maple syrup fanatic ~ my local grocery store is now roasting turkey breasts and hams with a maple glaze in the store and selling both at the deli counter ~ both have become mainstays for me ~

I love apples with pork ~ and since I can no longer get Stouffer's escalloped or harvest apples, I've taken to using a can of apple pie filling, doctoring it with brown sugar and cinnamon, and baking it with the pork chops or tenderloins ~ but now that it's wintery, time to bring out the slow cooker and do it from scratch ~

The extra flavour from the Calvados is worth it.

An ounce or two.
Doesn't have to be Calvados. Any decent apple brandy will do.

I doubt that a serious Canadian deals in "splashes".

Maple syrup sounds good. I'll try that AND I have some apple brandy that we keep moving from one unit to another. Hubby keeps saying "hang on to it, we can use it one day" lol, now I can. I won't tell him when I make that again, but just use it and see....
