Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops & Potatoes

Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops & Potatoes was a fun recipe that I put together.   I had a huge bag of large potatoes I needed to use up.  My youngest daughter did the famous science project where you make potatoes light up a light bulb (it totally worked!), and thus we had lots of extra potatoes after her project was finished.  We pulled some pork chops out of the freezer to thaw and I went to work.

I decided to add the butter so that the pork chops would be tender.  The onions provide moisture, but the potatoes, don’t provide too much, so I needed a good way to ensure we wouldn’t have dry meat and burnt potatoes.  The butter worked perfectly, the Italian Dressing Mix wasn’t overpowering.  We basically had a one pot meal, my favorite!
