I’ve mentioned before that we are trying to eat more of a Mediterranean style diet for health reasons. I’ve already found several recipes we really enjoy and am experimenting with some of my own. I also like having a good collection of slow cooker recipes for those busy days. I recently came up with a recipe for pork chops that fits both criteria. It’s so good I’ve already made it twice so I decided to share it with you. Enjoy!

Mediterranean Style Pork Chops
- 4-6 thick-cut, boneless pork chops
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons dried basil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 8 ounces chicken broth
- 2-4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2-4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1-2 cups tiny yellow potatoes (opt.)
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray.
Season pork chops on both sides with garlic salt and pepper then place in slow cooker.
Sprinkle with basil, oregano and paprika.
Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Place potatoes on and around the pork chops and then pour in the chicken broth.
Cook on low 6-8 hours or until very tender.
The pork chops will be fall-apart-tender and so flavorful. I like to add those teeny tiny yellow potatoes that Aldi has called “Steak Potatoes”. You could substitute tiny red potatoes or for a low carb version skip them altogether. The cooking liquid can be thickened by adding a paste of corn starch and cold water then bringing to a boil. This would be good over rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. Leftover pork chops make really tasty sandwiches, too!
