In an effort to stay off my feet a little more, I am going to try and use my crockpot more. I know that I have said it before, but I love, love, love my crockpot! It is so nice to throw a few things in and have a meal ready when you want to sit down and eat...
So, I found a few recipes and this one sounded pretty good and SUPER easy!! The pork chops were wonderful!! The were super tender and falling apart as I took them out of the crockpot (which Josh said meant they were cooked too long, but they tasted really good and not dry to me!). The oriental vegetables on the other hand... DISGUSTING!!! They were completely brown from being in the crockpot that long and not tasty at all, and I put them in COMPLETELY frozen... The pea pods did not cook in 5 minutes, but were delish once they heated completely through, about 15 minutes... So, when I make this recipe again, I am definitely leaving out the oriental vegetables and just cooking up the chops, because they were definitely worth it!
