Pork with Balsamic Sauce, Slow Cooker

Balsamic Pork Chops

Our favorite way to do boneless pork chops is in the slow cooker. The seasonings can vary, the prep is minimal and they are always fork-tender


  • 2 boneless pork chops, about 1″ thick, cut in half
  • 1 medium onion, chopped  use red or white
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 2/3 cup (5oz, 150ml) beef broth
  • 1/3 cup (3oz) Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs tapioca


  • Put onions and celery in the slow cooker.
  • Top with chops in a single layer.
  • Mix remaining ingredients and pour over chops.
  • Cover and cook, low heat, for 5 hours.
  • Give it a stir and turn the chops half way through if you can.


I use tapioca to thicken slow cooker sauces because it can be added at the beginning. You could also dissolve 1 tbs cornstarch in 2 tbs water and stir it in 30 minutes before serving.
