We have had a lot of requests for some recipes using pork chops so I decided to get my creative juices flowing and come up with something tasty. I love the combination of apples and pork. they just seem to go together so well. And then I spied some bourbon on the liquor shelf in my pantry and had an “ah-ha” moment, that bourbon, apples and pork would be perfect. And it was.
The house smelled amazing while this cooked and my husband raved about this dish for days afterwards.
Crock-Pot Bourbon Apple Pork Chops
A moist and delicious pork chop recipe that is sweet and savory at the same time with apples and bourbon.
6 Medium Thick Boneless Pork Chops
Salt & Pepper To Taste
1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme
4 Apples, Cored, Cut In Half and Sliced Thinly
1/3 Cup Light Brown Sugar, Packed
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Bourbon
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
- Season pork chops with salt and pepper and fresh thyme.
- Place pork chops in the bottom of a 6 or 7 quart oval crock-pot.
- In a bowl combine the sliced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and bourbon and stir well to combine.
- Pour apple mixture over pork chops in crock-pot.
- Cover and cook on high 4 hours or until pork chops are cooked and tender.
- Pour juices from the crock-pot into a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer on the stove top.
- In a small cup combine 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch and add slurry to simmering juices, cook while stirring until thickened into a nice glaze/sauce.
- Serve glaze poured over apples & pork chops.
Be careful not to overcook the pork chops. They should be moist and tender. Overcooking them will make them tender but dry.
You can substitute apple juice for the bourbon if you do not cook with alcohol. The flavor will be different but will still taste delicious.
