Crock Pot Sazon Pork Chops with Peppers, Olives and Potato

Seasoned with Latin spices and slow cooked in a flavorful sauce!

These pork chops are seasoned with Latin spices and slow cooked in a flavorful sauce with tomatoes, olives, peppers and potatoes. They literally fall of the bone when they come out of the slow cooker!

I love to serve them with just a little brown rice on the side, but totally optional!

My house was a little divided on this recipe. My husband thought it was good but not great, but my oldest daughter Karina thought it was AMAZING as she put it. I really liked this a lot too, and it was my first time making pork chops in the slow cooker believe it or not but won’t be my last.

I weighed the pork off the bone and got 4 oz cooked, so that is how I calculated these since they are not always the same size and the bones vary in size. If you go with boneless chops, that about 5 oz raw for each one.

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!

  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste, to taste
  • 2 tbsp all purpose unbleached flour (for gluten free use sweet rice flour)
  • 8 oz yukon gold potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

Directions:

Rub the pork chops with crushed garlic, then add sazon, cumin, 1/4 tsp kosher salt and black pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the chops and add to the slow cooker. Top with the potatoes and peppers.

Pour the tomato sauce and 1/4 cup water over the pork. Add the garlic, alcapparado (or olives), 1/4 cup cilantro and bay leaves. Cook until the potatoes are tender, for me that was on LOW 8 hours. Transfer the pork chops to a platter and remove the bay leaves.

Add the remaining fresh cilantro to the sauce and stir. To serve place 1 chop on each plate with 3/4 cups sauce and vegetables.
