To convert our favorite skillet smothered pork chop recipe for use in the slow cooker, we started with the right chop: blade chops, which have enough fat to keep them from drying out in the slow cooker. We browned the pork chops in bacon fat to add color and richness, while at the same time creating a savory foundation for our recipe. And for the “smothered" part, we pureed onions with some liquid from the pot and added some cornstarch. This gave us a thick, rich gravy with solid onion flavor.
