It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I’ve got a super easy, super delicious Crock-Pot recipe to share with all of you today. I absolutely love the slow cooker, but it’s funny because up until a couple of years ago, I only used it for soups, stews and things like that. Whenever I made pork roast or chops, I always used the oven. Of course, now that I realize you can make almost anything in a slow cooker, I use it all the time. This Crock-Pot Pork Loin with Dijon Mustard requires only a few ingredients, and it makes a great meal for the whole family.
How to Make Crock Pot Pork Loins
- 12 pork loin center cut chops, sliced thin
- 1 whole onion, chopped in large pieces
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Olive oil
Add the onions at the bottom of the Crock-Pot
Add the pork loin chops over the onion
Sprinkle the salt, pepper and rosemary over the chops
Peel the garlic, and add whole cloves on top of the pork
Spread the mustard over the chops, and drizzle a bit of olive oil on top
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until done
The onions provide enough juice so that you don’t even have to add water, and the mustard helps thicken the liquid, so it makes a nice sauce. Before I serve this, I like to smash the garlic into the meat and spoon the juices over the top, so that the flavor reaches all of the meat.
To keep things simple, I make some rice as a side dish, and I serve the meat over the rice and layer the onions on top — yum!
You can also add some fresh greens to the side, or you can add your favorite vegetable. This recipe makes a lot of food, but it reheats well, and you’ll get some very tasty leftovers! And, that makes it a perfect dish for this time of year.
Have a great day!
