  1. Rub chopped garlic and 1 teaspoon salt into pork chops.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
