Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Rub chopped garlic and 1 teaspoon salt into pork chops.

    Advertisement
  • Place barley in slow cooker and top with pork chops. Cover with white mushrooms and chopped onion. Add chicken broth, water, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, salt and a few grinding of fresh black pepper.

  • Set slow cooker to low. Cover and cook 8 hours.

Cook's Note:

I recommend placing pork with the garlic and salt in a glass dish overnight to really enhance the flavor of the pork, and start the cooking the following morning.

This was pretty good especially for crock pot pork chops. They were very tender and the barley was perfectly cooked. Instead of dicing the onion I just left it whole so that my picky eaters could get the flavor without the texture of the vegetable. I halved this because my family is small but I wish I had kept the original amount of barley -- if you're serving six consider doubling it or your portions will be small. Read More

I made this recipe with 4 chops and there was not enough barley. Next time I will use one cup and perhaps add a cup of carrots the last hour. The pork chops fell apart like pulled pork. Should I have seared them in a pan first? Read More

As per other reviewer's suggestions I doubled the amount of barley... big mistake as the whole dish was ruined! The barley was dry and the pork chops were dryer to the point that they were inedible. Obviously one needs to add more cooking liquid if adding more barley than the recipe calls for; just wish I had realized that before I ruined the dish. Read More
