Slow-Cooker Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy
4 bone-in center-cut thick pork chops (the bone adds so much more flavor)
2-3 T. McCormick Grill-Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium shallot (sliced-these are nice and mild)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
-Heavily season each side of pork chops with steak seasoning. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat with e.v.o., sear both sides of the pork chops. You are looking for a nice golden-brown crusting, not a burnt one. Halfway through searing the chops, toss in the shallots to saute' as well. Transfer browned chops and shallots to your slow-cooker. Pour the can of soup into the pan that you seared the pork chops and onions in and kind of stir it up, then pour into the slow-cooker (picks up all the little bits and flavor left in the pan). Cook Low and Slow for 6-8 hours (the longer the better). Serve with mashed potatoes and veggies. Serves 4. Enjoy!
