Crockpot Challenge Day 2-Pork Chops and Baked Potatoes

Oh yes you did read the title correctly for day two I made pork chops and baked potatoes at the same time in the same crockpot. Really it was far simpler then you may think. I have learned over the years when cooking in a crockpot it can be very helpful to have a couple old tin cans around. Most of ours we come buy when we buy canned tomatoes. They are the perfect height and wider around to fit larger items in.

Baking Potatoes(I use russets however many you will need for you family )
Aluminum Foil(You will wrap the potatoes in this)
Pork(I bought 2 thick cut pork chops it is less fatty then your typical roast I didn't want it swimming in its own fat)
1/8 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
4 teaspoons A-1
4 Teaspoons Ketchup
1 Clove of garlic cut in half
1/2 teaspoon Honey


Again with me it is all about making everything as easy as I can. Give your potatoes a good wash and wrap them in foil. Mine were smaller potatoes so I wrapped them in groups of 2 to save foil. Place you can in your crockpot, I felt compelled to place mine in the middle although I'm not sure it matter.lol Starting with the pork place the rest of the ingredients into the can. Then simply turn you crockpot on low and leave for the day :O) Best part is when you come home your house will smell AMAZING and you only dirtied one dish. I like to cut open my potato and top it with the pork and sometimes some cheese. Of course the kids don't like anything to touch. If you have a larger piece of meat then just increase the remaining ingredients to make sure there is enough sauce for all of it. This by far was the most impressive crockpot dinner I have ever made :O) I'm so excited for the upcoming days as I delve deeper into the use of a crockpot. Up next......RICE PUDDING!
