Slow Cooker Bacon Apple BBQ Pork Chops



I love one pot meals. Especially if I can make them in the slow cooker! We recently went apple picking and I have TONS of apples. Instead of using them only in dessert and muffin recipes, I decided why not use them in a savory recipe. I had some center cut pork chops in the freezer that I needed to use and since apples and pork pair well together I that ended up being my inspiration for the dish. My family are big fans of BBQ and Bacon so combine the four and toss in some baby red potatoes and you have a savory and comforting fall meal!


Slow Cooker Bacon Apple BBQ Pork Chops
Serves 4 (One chop with apples and potatoes)
WW PP=11
Cal 448, Carbs 52g, Fat 11.5g, Fiber 2.9g, Protein 31g

Ingredients
4 boneless pork loin chops
2 large apples peeled and diced (I used McIntosh)
4 red potatoes, quartered (I used 8 baby red potatoes)
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Stubbs)
8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
2 tbsp. brown sugar, divided
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. liquid smoke, optional (we love it)

Toss the potatoes and apples in the slow cooker. Mix with one tbsp of brown sugar. Cover and cook on high for 1-2 hours. (Since the potatoes take longer to cook than the chops I like to give them a head start)

Turn heat to low and place pork chops on top of the potatoes and apples. Sprinkle chops with remaining brown sugar along with the salt and liquid smoke. Cover with bbq sauce and crumbled bacon.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Enjoy!
