Are you looking for easy crock pot pork chops recipes with weight watchers points the whole family will love? You’ve come to the right place. I’m a Lifetime Weight Watcher with a love of slow cooker meals always on the lookout for delicious new recipes to try.
One of the things I love about slow cooking is that most of the cook time is totally unattended. You have plenty of time to do other things: work, play, set the table, help with homework, while dinner cooks.
More than just a great way to avoid slaving over a hot stove, slow cooking is a great way for cooking pork chops because it allows them to cook gently until tender.

Why Are My Crock Pork Chops Tough?
According to the experts at Taste of Home the reason pork chops are tough is because the collagen hasn’t yet broken down break down. Extend the cook time, make sure there’s enough liquid and keep an eye on the dish. I like to poke them with a fork periodically. When the fork can pierce the meat easily with little resistance I know they are tender.
Can You Overcook Pork Chops in the Slow Cooker?
Yes, it is possible to overcook pork chops in the slow cooker. For best result don’t use thin-cut pork chops in the crock pot. The low-and-slow cooking method of the slow cooker works best with thicker, more marbled cuts of meat. I find it best to use bone-in pork chops, trimming away most of the extra fat. The bone helps to maintain moistness. Pay attention to cooking times and consider them done at an internal temperature of 140-145.
What Should I Serve with Pork Chops?
My favorite sides to serve with pork chops include:
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Broccoli (Steamed or Roasted)
Corn Casserole Made Lighter
Spinach Spoon Bread Casserole
Braised Cabbage with Bacon & Craisins
