We have pork chops several times a month. It is a little healthier than beef and lamb – that is if you remove all visible fat of course, which I admit, I do not always do (nothing tastier than a crispy piece of grilled or baked pork rind !)

This 1000 Island Tangy Pork Chops is our favorite though. Sweet, sticky and so tangy.

I have made these Pork Chops both in the slow-cooker and baked in the oven, but I am leaning towards the baked chops, rather than using the slow-cooker. (Purely because of our high electricity bills, nothing else).

Therefore, if you want to cook them in your slow-cooker, go right ahead – prepare as below and cook on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 4 – 6 hours.

OK.. sigh.. I am so uninformed! Garlic Flakes.. what are garlic flakes? is it a spice you can buy in a jar or the way you chop up a garlic clove? . All I can find is minced garlic; garlic salt; garlic powder...sorry so many questions, but I want to make this!!! :)

Valerie, the Garlic Flakes I use, are dried garlic found with the herbs and spices - but you can use finely chopped fresh garlic if unavailable, just increase the qty to 2 teaspoons. And I am sure the Knorr French Soup Mix will work :-) {replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment}

Can you use Knorr French Onion Soup Mix? None of the soup mixes I see have "White Onion" on the label. I love the recipe & can't wait to try it! I love pork and usually mine is kinda bland. This sounds Popping! :)

The 1000 Island dressing draws me in...I haven't had it in years. I love the color and coating on these chops, Linda.
