Smothered Pork Chops in Slow Cooker

Cooking dinner in the slow cooker is perfect on a cold winters day.  You have a hot piping dinner ready while you snuggle under the covers and watch that's what I call easy cooking.  These smothered pork chops are perfect with some mashed potatoes.  The pork is juicy and tender and can be cut simply with a fork.  I highly recommend taking the extra time to brown the chops and the mushrooms. So, when you are craving some comfort food and want to sit back and relax, grab your slow cooker and smother some pork chops.

2-3lbs of bone-in or boneless pork chops
1/2 cup seasoned flour (flour mixed with salt and black pepper)
1 large onion sliced or chopped
1 cup of sliced or chopped mild peppers (bell, cubanelle etc..)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of water (use soup can)
1/2 lb sliced mushrooms
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp granulated garlic
red chili flakes to taste
black pepper

Mix flour with salt and pepper to prepare seasoned flour.  Dredge pork in flour and brown in some canola oil.  Place browned pork in slow cooker.   Saute mushrooms in pan to brown after pork. Add mushrooms into slow cooker.

 Add all remaining ingredients.  Cook on high for 4-5 hours.  Taste for seasoning in last hour of cooking. Serve with mashed potatoes and vegetable.  Enjoy.
