Ingredients

  • 4 thick cut pork chops at least 1 inch thick, boneless or bone-in
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms crimini or white, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups low sodium chicken broth

Instructions

  • Combine garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, paprika, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub over both sides of pork chops.
  • Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the butter is melted. Add the pork chops to the pan and brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove pork chops to a clean plate.
  • Add the onion and mushrooms to the skillet. Cook, stirring often, until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the flour followed by the chicken broth. Cook, stirring and scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom of the skillet, for a few minutes until the broth simmers and thickens. It should lightly coat the back of a spatula. Remove pan from the heat.
  • Pour the contents of the skillet into the slow cooker. Place the pork chops on top. Cover and cook on low setting for 1 ½ to 3 hours. Pork chops are done when they reach an internal temperature of at least 145° F. (In my slow cooker, 1-inch thick boneless pork chops need about 1 ½-2 hours to cook through and bone-in take about 2 ½-3 hours.) Try to avoid over-cooking the pork chops, as that will make them dry.*
  • Optional: To further thicken the gravy, remove the cooked pork chops to a clean plate and cover with foil. Turn the slow cooker up to high. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the slow cooker and stir. Cook on high for 15-20 minutes, until the gravy thickens slightly. (Alternatively, you can heat the gravy in a pot on the stove over medium heat, stirring, for a few minutes until thickened.)
  • Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Serve pork chops with mushroom gravy.

Notes

  • The exact cook time will depend on your slow cooker, the thickness of your pork chops, whether the pork chops are boneless or bone-in, and how much you brown them on the stove.
