Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pork Chops

This recipe, my friends, is nothing short of a miracle. I don’t even think I’m being dramatic right now. If you’ve ever struggled with cooking for a picky eater, I think you will totally understand my enthusiasm. The list of things my 5 year old won’t eat is WAY longer than the list she will eat. Her and I are both pretty stubborn, me in my quest to get her to eat what I make without complaining and her with her refusal to enjoy foods that aren’t on her “list”. All of this to say…. I found something that she not only ate, but that she took down every bit of leftovers that were in the fridge! Again I say, miracle.

Maybe it could have a little something to do with this honey mustard sauce? I mean, my chicken tender loving girl usually goes for ranch, but nobody in their right mind could turn down something with honey mustard, either. Right?

And let’s talk about using your slow cooker to make pork chops. Unless you have super thick cut chops that can handle being grilled, then slow cooking is the only way to go. Pork chops can get dried out so easily. But slow cooking them helps them stay so juicy and tender. You can brown or not brown them, depending on your preference and the amount of time you have, but either way they will turn out great.

And let’s talk about sides. Okay, so my daughter didn’t want to go near my brussels sprouts salad, but hey, small wins. Besides, that left more for me! Husband at work, son at practice, the two girls in the house did some pretty good damage to this meal.

  1. This looks really good! Can’t wait to make it! Will it make much difference if I use 2 mustard and that one is not grainy?

  2. I have this in my crock pot cooking right now and it smells like eggs. I’m really nervous that this is going to taste gross with all that warm mayo.

  3. Had some pork chops in the fridge and wanted to cook them before they went bad. I just put my chops in the cooker 5 minutes ago. I had to skip the honey because I dont have any and I subbed the lime juice for lemon and the grainy mustard for hohey mustard(dont have grainy mustard ) Will post review of recipe on my blog!!

  4. What an elegant, simple dish! Pork chops are always a bit tricky to cook without drying them out, so this slow cooker recipe is a great option for avoiding it altogether! And with such an delicious, indulgent sauce, you can’t go wrong. With the fresh salad, too, it makes for one healthful, tasty meal! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh how I love me some pork chops, but I hate browning prior to cooking in the crock pot. Your recipe says that browning is optional. Did you brown yours? Many thanks.

  6. What kind/brand of BBQ sauce do you recommend for the pork chops? Sometimes to me the BBQ sauce can over power the other flavors. Thank you!

    1. Hi Cindy! I used Sweet Baby Rays, and it seemed to give it just the right amount of smoky flavor. You could totally cut back to 1 tablespoon if desired.
