Alaina's Crock Pot Sesame Pork Chops

I often find pork chops marked down at our local grocery. However, I'm not the best at making sure that pork chops are well cooked without being too dry. After trying Alaina's original recipe, pork chops have quickly become but one of our family favorites. Usually I have all the ingredients on hand, but simple substitutions like ketchup or dried ginger always work in a pinch.

Alaina's Crock Pot Sesame Pork Chops

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Yields: 6-8 servings

6 lg. bone-in pork chops ($4.50 on sale)
