These pork chops are a breeze to prepare with butterflied boneless chops, dressing mix, and potatoes. It makes an excellent family dinner. Add a salad or steamed broccoli or peas to the complete the meal.

I seared the chop (pictured) to give them some color and a little extra flavor. See the tips and variations below the recipe.

What You'll Need

  • 6 or more medium red potatoes, thickly sliced
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thickly sliced
  • 4 to 6 boneless, butterflied pork chops (See How to Butterfly Pork Chops)
  • 1/2 packet (0.6 ounces) Zesty Italian dressing mix 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Toss potatoes and sliced onion with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Put the potatoes in the slow cooker and top with the pork chops..
  2. Sprinkle the pork chops with about half of a package of dressing mix.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for about 3 hours. (a 4 1/2-quart or larger pot will be necessary for the larger number of chops & potatoes.)
  4. Remove the pork chops to a platter and place the potatoes in a serving bowl. 

    Serves 4 to 6.

    Tips and Variations

    If desired, sear the chops as soon as they come out of the slow cooker. This will give them a little extra flavor and some color. To sear, heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet. Sear the pork chops for a few minutes on each side, or just until browned.

    Toss about 1 teaspoon of finely minced garlic with the potatoes and onions.

    Use a crock pot cooking bag and make cleanup easier.
