mixed-in-crockpot

I’m super thrilled to share this new Crock-Pot recipe with you. I first came across this recipe when I was planning meals for my kids and my mother-in-law while we went out of town for our anniversary. I really appreciate it when she watches the kids, and I try to make things as easy as possible for her while we’re gone. What could be easier than creamy pork chops and potatoes in the Crock-Pot?

This recipe originally appeared in a post featuring freeze-ahead Crock-Pot meals, but up until now I have never planned far enough ahead to pull that off. It’s a great idea, and you can read all about it here.

    Does it matter if the chops are on the bottom or on top of the potatoes?

    • MaryJane says:

      Good question. I have always put the meat on the bottom, mostly because meat usually takes the longest to cook, and whatever needs to be cooked longest should be placed nearest the heat source. But after some quick research, it appears that root vegetables, such as potatoes and carrots, can also be placed on the bottom, with the meat on top. It might take some experimenting to see which method yields the best flavor.
