Buttery Pork Chops n’ Veggies is a great recipe to use those fresh garden veggies that you are harvesting. Have your neighbors and friends given you a stack of squash? This recipe is perfect for you.
This is the perfect Sunday dish using pork chops where you can use more or less pork chops. Bone in or Boneless Pork chops will work. The meat will be really tender thus easy to fall off the bone. Butter helps make this dish taste fabulous. Butter also makes the browning of the pork chop taste really good and is great addition for the veggies.
The Slow Cooker at the end is used as a basic steamer for the squash and zucchini which is the perfect way to cook those veggies. The slow cooker creates the perfect texture for them. You can easily replace the squash and zukes with asparagus, fresh green beans or peas. Whichever one you love the best. You can even sprinkle a little Parmesan on top. It would taste great!
I used my 7 quart slow cooker. Remember that with this dish you can use the amount of pork chops that your family needs. You can just do one layer and then veggies, or do two layers, alternating them and then spread the veggies around and on top. Use your favorite noodles or even rice, cooked separately on the stove top or rice cooker, to serve the dish on.
