These pork chops are seasoned with Latin spices and slow cooked in a flavorful sauce with tomatoes, olives, peppers and potatoes. They literally fall of the bone when they come out of the slow cooker!
I love to serve them with just a little brown rice on the side, but totally optional!
My house was a little divided on this recipe. My husband thought it was good but not great, but my oldest daughter Karina thought it was AMAZING as she put it. I really liked this a lot too, and it was my first time making pork chops in the slow cooker believe it or not but won’t be my last.
I weighed the pork off the bone and got 4 oz cooked, so that is how I calculated these since they are not always the same size and the bones vary in size. If you go with boneless chops, that about 5 oz raw for each one.

- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 4 center cut bone-in pork chops, trimmed of excess fat (with bone about 32 oz)
- 1 1/2 tsp sazon (I used my homemade recipe)
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- kosher salt and black pepper to taste, to taste
- 2 tbsp all purpose unbleached flour (for gluten free use sweet rice flour)
- 8 oz yukon gold potato, peeled and diced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup alcapparado (or green pimento olives)
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
- 2 dried bay leaves
Pour the tomato sauce and 1/4 cup water over the pork. Add the garlic, alcapparado (or olives), 1/4 cup cilantro and bay leaves. Cook until the potatoes are tender, for me that was on LOW 8 hours. Transfer the pork chops to a platter and remove the bay leaves.
