Braised Pork Chops Rice and Cabbage | ShesGotFlavor

OK, ever since the Amazin Braisin Competition on THE CHEW, I’ve been braised crazy!  I decided to make some braised pork chops and boy was my family happy I did!  They were all raving about these chops!  For the braising liquid I actually made a gravy, so yes honey it was just cooking away in this delish gravy for more than an hour!  I mean really there was enough flavor in these chops to make you think about them for a month!  Hope you enjoy them and share the recipe love!

oh yeah baby!

Hi I just stumbled across this recipe and it sounds amazingly good but I don’t have a dutch oven. Do you think this recipe would still work if I prepare it the same way but put it a slow cooker to finish it off and cook longer instead of putting it in the oven? Either way, thanks for the recipe!

Hi Keri, sure you could use a slow cooker or just a roasting pan or even an aluminum pan from the grocery store.
