Crockpot Pork Chops

Ok, so I figured I would post how I do my pork chops in the crockpot since I was asked recently, so here it goes. This recipe is great if you really need some comfort food but not a lot of fuss.  I always serve this with rice and green beans, but you could change up the rice for mac and cheese or mashed cauliflower (which we eat a lot of in this house).  The important thing to remember is to brown your pork chops before they go in the crockpot.  I season mine with seasoning salt and pepper and then brown in a sauté pan with a little butter and coconut oil.  You could just as easily use olive oil in place of coconut oil.  Put them in the crockpot and move on to your gravy.  Put 2 Tbls butter in a sauce pan on medium.  When it melts, put in 2 Tbls flour.  Cook that for a few minutes while stirring. You don't want your gravy to taste like flour.  While whisking, pour in 1 cup beef broth and 3/4 cup of milk.  I make more gravy than this usually since I'm feeding so many.  Bring to a boil until it thickens.  Season to taste with a little salt and pepper.  Always taste your food.  Pour over your pork chops and turn in on low.  6-8 hours and you are good.  If  making gravy is not your thing just mix together in a bowl 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 2 cups of milk with a 1/2 cup sour cream.  I personally don't like using canned soups, too many unnecessary ingredients.  If you have any questions, just let me know.  I would love to know if you make it.  I can also try to help you out of you want to make this low carb.  All for now.
