Three ingredient pork chops?
That’s right, my friends. I’ve taken a family favorite- lemon pepper pork chops- and made it crock pot and instant pot friendly. We always had these at my house growing up, it was one of my favorite meals with boxed ‘Roni’ on the side. Have you ever noticed the simplest things in life can bring you the most joy?
Every time I had the chance to request dinner, lemon pepper pork chops came to mind. When I was a kid I even picked up the bones and gnawed on them. Cooking1handed has always been all class. Now that I’m the mama, Crawling2handed gets to share our family recipes. The only addition to the family recipe is apple juice. It picks up the seasoning as it cooks with the pork. Reducing it by half leaves you a sweet, tangy sauce to spoon over your three ingredient pork chops.
This might be the perfect weeknight dinner.
Serve it with a salad and my base a roni for a meal that is free from gluten, dairy,MSG, and an abundance of processed sodium. This is a great alternative to buying fast food. By the time you would have driven up to the drive through, dinner is read. I won’t even tell if you gnaw on the bones. If you are eyeing those pretty potato pancakes, the recipe just might make an appearance soon on this blog!
Pork chops and apples just go together, don’t you think?
