Ingredients

  • 2 Apples peeled and chopped (I like Fuji or Granny Smith)
  • 4-6 Thick Cut Pork Chops 2 lbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 TBSP raw honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce no sugar added
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • salt and pepper optional

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients into a freezer safe bag except chicken broth.
  2. Freeze.
  3. When ready to cook thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Empty bag into a slow cooker and add 1/2 cup chicken broth.
  5. Look on low for 6-8 hours.
  6. Drain apples from broth and serve pork chops with apples on top.
  7. Add salt and pepper if desired before serving.
  8. Optional - If desired you can thicken with arrow root powder to create a gravy. I served without gravy and it was delicious.
