Nice flavor and very easy. I used more chopped onions, added fresh pressed garlic, added a "glob of peach preserves, substituted apple cider vinegar for the lemon, and added bell pepper chunks and sliced canned pineapple (both near the end). I thickened the sauce to use as gravy over rice. Next time I will cut the onions in big chunks and add red food coloring for a more traditional looking dish. I love the ease of using a crock pot. I will make this often. Thanks. Read More

Tried it oven baked. The flavor or the ketchup was alittle too strong. May try cutting back on that next time. Read More

Super easy! The pork chops came out tender after 4 hours! I did double the sauce recipe as I don't have a small slow cooker and was afraid that it would dry out the meat. This was pretty awesome and will make it again. Read More

It was very delicious. I used water instead of lemon juice (only because I didn't have lemon juice) only recomendation is to double the recipie cause there wasn't enough sauce. Read More

Welll...something even I can make! This recipe came out delicious - very tender and tasty. I did make a few changes: used more onions and instead of lemon juice used blackberry Simply Fruit. I think next time I'll add more onion and use green pepper and pineapples as suggested in other reviews. Yummy served over rice. Read More

I was unsure how this was going to turn out after seeing the food in the slow cooker. I did put more onion in then what the recipe had called for. Tho the lack of juice in the pot made me feel like it might come out dry but I went along with the recipe and it turned out good. There was juice in there at the end and my pork did not come out dry at all. The flavor was sweet but not overly sweet. I still loved eating my pork with applesauce. With some green beans on the side. This was a great supper and I enjoyed eating it with my boyfriend by my side. Read More
