Chicken is a staple for crock pot cooking, but did you know that pork chops are also a perfect protein for the slow cooker? These honey garlic pork chops come out so tender and flavorful that they’ll be sure to find a place on your regular dinner menu rotation.

How to make honey garlic pork chops

For this recipe you’ll want to use thick cut boneless pork chops. If you use a thin pork chop, you should reduce the cooking time so that they don’t dry out. My pork chops were about 1 1/2 inches thick. I prefer to brown my pork chops before I add them to the slow cooker, it just adds so much more flavor. If you’re in a hurry you can skip that step and the chops will still be delicious.

The sauce is made with ketchup, soy sauce, honey and garlic. At the end of the cooking process, a little cornstarch gets added to thicken the sauce. Be sure to serve your honey garlic pork chops over mashed potatoes or with rice or bread to soak up that amazing sauce!

I add a little chopped parsley at the end for a fresh flavor. If you don’t have parsley on hand, you can omit it, or substitute sliced green onions.

Not a pork fan? You can make this recipe with chicken instead! Simply substitute boneless skinless chicken thighs for the pork chops.

    Great recipe
    I’d like to try substituting pork for chicken how much chicken breast would I put into this recipe?

  2. I accidentally made this even better! I ran out of ketchup so I used half ketchup and half smoky bbq sauce because that’s all I had and it was delicious!

  3. 5 stars
    I’m not new to this recipe, but I thought I’d say it’s the best recipe I know for the crockpot. I also use chicken breasts occasionally. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

  4. 5 stars
    Made this recipe & oh my yum…. It was terrific! Pork chops are my favorite meat & this recipe will stay in my “best ever pork chop” recipe forever! Thanks…can’t wait to make them again!!!! Juicy~melt in your mouth & everyone loved them!!!

  5. 5 stars
    Oh my god!!!!!! This the best pork chop recipe I ever ate in my life. The ingredients just meld perfectly together. I rarely use my slow cooker but I saw this recipe and I knew I had to try it. It’s so tender and melt in your mouth delicious.

    1. You could try 1 tablespoon of flour, and you’d want to remove the pork chops, whisk the flour well into the sauce mixture, then add the pork chops back in.

  6. Is the nutritional facts the whole recipe or per serving? I’m bout to make this I can tell it’s gonna be amazing thank you!!

  7. 5 stars
    Overall this recipe is really good. I personally like a lot of favor so I may do some adjustments next time but a big hit in our house! Thank you

  8. Can I use sweet soy sauce instead of low sodium ?
    I could just alter the amount put in couldn’t i?

    1. I haven’t tried sweet soy sauce in this recipe so unfortunately I can’t say how it would turn out!

  9. I’m trying out your recipe today for dinner. There are twelve guests so instead of a pork loin I sliced it into twelve pieces. I doubled the sauce since it doubled the serving size. My slow cooker is smaller than the one you demonstrated so my twelve pieces are stacked. How long should it be in the slow cooker at the low setting?What temperature should it be? Thank you kindly in advance.
