Tips for making the best boneless pork chops
Using thick-cut chops is essential. Thinner cuts cook too quickly so you will not have the same results.
Add chili paste according to your desired heat level. We use 3 tablespoons for a little kick. If you prefer a milder flavor, add less or omit it altogether. It is fabulous either way.
Cook times will vary based on your Crockpot and the thickness of your chops. It’s important that you don’t overcook your meat or it will be dry and tough.
Why we use boneless pork chops
We like to use boneless meat for this recipe because it reduces the cooking time. Just be sure that you use a thick-cut chop so the meat stays juicy.
Also, when choosing the meat, look for cuts that have some fat (marbling).
Lean meat isn’t the best choice for crockpot cooking – you need the fat and marbling to keep the food moist.
When it’s time to remove them from the slow cooker, you will need to use a spatula to take them out of the slow cooker. This is because they are so tender, they may even fall apart.
Will the recipe work with bone in pork chops?
Yes, you can make this recipe with bone in chops if you want to.
Be sure to look for chops between 1 and 1 1/2 inches thick. Also, be careful not to cook them for too long. Overcooked meat will be dry and tough.
Can you freeze the leftovers?
Yes, you can easily freeze leftover chops. Just place them in an airtight container or a freezer bag. Then, store them in the freezer and use them within 6 months.
How to reheat leftovers
Reheating leftover pork couldn’t be easier!
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Then, add 2 tablespoons of water or beef broth to a baking pan.
- Place the meat in the pan and cover it with aluminum foil.
- Then, cook them for between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chops.

- After 4 hours, combine equal amounts cornstarch and water in a mason jar. Close the lid, to seal the jar. Shake the living tar out of it, to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the crockpot. Stir and cover, cook 1 more hour.
- Check for doneness with an instant-read digital cooking thermometer. The internal temperature of the chops should be at least 145°F. If the pork chops need longer, cover the pot and continue cooking.
