Living in an apartment building, I don’t really get to grill much. We do have a grill up on our rooftop deck, but quite frankly I don’t really even know how to use it and with my luck, I’d blow something up. That is one item on my to-learn lists for this year. Since I’m not much of a grill master (yet) I had to come up with a new idea for the BBQ I’ve been craving. I couldn’t think of a better (and EASIER!) way to get my BBQ fix than some slow cooker BBQ pork chops.
4 pork chops – bone in
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup water
Can you believe that is the extent of the ingredient list? Well, it is!
Coat the bottom of your slow cooker with a thin layer of your BBQ sauce.
Add 2 of your pork chops.
Add another thin layer of BBQ sauce and the last 2 pork chops and cover again with BBQ sauce.
Pour 1/2 cup of water over the pork, just to cover everything.
Cook on the high setting for 3 hours. Serve with any sides you prefer.
I served mine with quick and easy oven roasted potatoes. Just chop your potatoes as evenly as possible and spread them out over a foil-lined baking sheet.
Pour a thin layer of olive oil over the potatoes and toss them to coat each one, making sure they are in an even layer on the sheet after tossing.
Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme and cayenne pepper.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Toss the potatoes again and then bake for another 10-15 minutes until golden brown and soft enough that a fork slides through easily.
