Slow Cooker Dijon Cream Iowa Chops

This post contains affiliate links.  The Iowa Pork Producers provided me with free pork vouchers that I used in this recipe.  All opinions are my own. 

I send my Iowa-born husband to the store with a shopping list.

On that list:

Milk

Bread

Spinach

Bananas

Wine (  I have three small boys.  Remember?)

Some kind of meat 

Of course, he comes home with Iowa Pork Chops.   He is an Iowa native.  He loves Iowa Pork Chops.  It is not something that I always think to buy.

But I am glad he did.

I decided to make these Iowa chops with dijon cream sauce.   11 years ago, when Greg and I were engaged, we visited Dijon, France and had some amazing dishes with mustard cream sauce.   This is a little lighter.  I used olive oil, not butter.  and a mixture of milk and 1/2 and 1/2.  Not cream.

Here is a photo of Greg and I in France in 2006.  Not Dijon.  This is us in Nice.  Remember, this was before we owned a digital camera.  We had to take photos sparingly.

I made this Pork chops in the Slow cooker.   I love my casserole style slow cooker.  I love it for slow cooking meat.  I feel like things don’t get lost in the bottom of it- like in regular slow cookers.  I also love it this slow cooker for entertaining.  I feel like appetizers can have a nice presentation when served in it.

2 cups of milk

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon of dill

Method:   Lightly salt and pepper pork chops. In a saucepan, over medium heat seer pork chops in olive oil until lightly browned.  Don’t worry about cooking the pork chops all the way through.   Whisk the ingredients together for the Dijon cream sauce.  Arrange the pork chops in your slow cooker and pour the dijon sauce on top.  add garlic and fresh chives.  Cook on low for 5-6  hours.

This was such a great dinner.  I served it with mashed potatoes and peas!
