Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Rice

Very simple to make, this is one of my favorite recipes for pork. If you cook this correctly it will be so tender that you will not even need a knife to cut it, it will just fall apart when you touch it with your fork.


4 - 5 boneless pork chops
1 can of chicken broth
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of uncooked rice

*Add spices to taste*

Onion powder
Minced garlic
Seasoning salt


Put everything in your slow cooker except for the rice. Cook on high for about 4 hours. Add the rice, mix thoroughly and cook until rice is done.
