Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops with Zucchini and Tomatoes

Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops with Zucchini and Tomatoes - Chew Nibble Nosh

Thursday nights have become increasingly busy around here, so I’ve now dubbed them Slow Cooker Thursdays.  There’s no way I’m going to be able to cook a dinner in between shuttle stops, so I’m thankful I have a good number of tasty slow cooker meals in my back pocket.  This one can now be added to the list.

I honestly can’t remember a time where I’ve cooked whole, bone-in pork chops in the slow cooker, and I was pretty happy with how they turned out.  The pork was fall-off-the-bone tender, and had a ton of flavor from a delicious herb-garlic rub.  It was topped with tomatoes, zucchini, and a speedy quick gravy that I made from the leftover juices after cooking.

This recipe leaves me with mixed emotions.  I’m thrilled I found it, because it’s delicious, but I’m irritated with myself because I’ve had the cookbook that it’s in for years and years, and never tried it until now.  Shame on me!

This brisket was a huge hit with my family.  It was the perfect thing on a night when we were running around until after 7 o’clock, and the fact that it was delicious just added to its awesomeness.  The brisket cooks up amazingly tender and moist, and the gravy…oh, the gravy!  I’m not a gravy person, and this one has me singing its praises.  Such simple ingredients, but so tasty.
