My husband loves pork chops. Whenever fall comes around, he’s begging me for Braised Pork Chops with Apples & Sweet Potatoes . Ok, maybe don’t go and look at it. This was one of my first blog recipes ever…and the pictures certainly need an upgrade.
As much as he loves this meal, it’s a PAIN in the bum to make. Lots of wasted time peeling, dicing, stove top cooking and baking in the oven — it’s no wonder why I would drag my feet to make one of his favorite dishes.
So I had to make a 21st century upgrade to the dish — aka the busy mom version. I kept the moistness of the pork chops intact, as everything simmers in sweet apple heaven. Getting the kids to eat this meal? Not a problem. Ready to make your winning gourmet meal for the busy mom (aka throwing a bunch of stuff in a pot and pushing the on button)? Let’s do this.
Don’t forget the crock pot liner!

Making this for a second time, I use 3 large pork chops instead of 6 small but they come out so good. Definitely worth making for anyone debating 🙂
Perfect fall recipe! I’ve done apples with pork chops or chicken before. And we all love sweet potatoes! One question when do you add the sliced onion? It’s listed in the ingredients but never mentions them in the recipe lol. I just layered some slices on top of the chops.
Sorry about that! It goes in the bottom with the sweet potatoes and apples. I just updated the recipe. Thank you!

Thanks! It worked out on top, because my husband and 3 yr old aren’t fond of onions so they were easily picked off. Loved this! The pork chops were just fall-apart-tender!
The juices were very flavourful. I put my crock on low for 6.5 hrs and my chops were very overcooked/dry. Potatoes were pretty much mush as well. Next time I will try for 4 hours on low;

going to try this with a pork loin
Can you use canned apples in this instead of real apples
Yes, you can. The only thing is it will affect the Apple cook time. I would put the can of apples in 1-2 hours before the end of cook time.
