Maple Bourbon Pork Chops (CP)

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 pork loin chops (1-inch-thick)
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 C ketchup
  • 1/2 C bourbon
  • 1/4 C pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 C beef broth

Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle the salt and pepper evenly over the pork chops and add to the skillet.

Brown the chops on both sides, adding a few at a time, being careful not to crowd the pan, and transfer to the insert of a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker.

Melt the butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Transfer the contents of the skillet to the slow-cooker insert.

Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 7 hours. Skim off any fat from the top of the sauce. Serve from the cooker set on warm.
