So me and pork chops?  We do not usually get along.  I make them rubber tough — it’s a gift. But, I thought to myself, Heather try them in the crock pot! (we love the taste of pork chops when I’m not busy killing them). I adapted this recipe that calls for pork roast and came up with Crock Pot Honey Romano Pork Chops. These pork chops were amazing and delish – you’re going to love them.

This was so yummy and the pork chops were falling off the bone (I had bone-in chops, but this would be delicious with no bone as well).  You will love these — and the gravy went great on my Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes!  YUM!

Crock Pot Honey Romano Pork Chops make an excellent freezer meal as well. You guys know I love myself a freezer meal! So perfect to have dinner waiting in the freezer for me to pop into the slow cooker. If you haven’t made yourself a freezer full of food – then you need to try it!!! Having dinner ready to go with little to no prep in the morning makes my day…almost as much as coming home to dinner being cooked. (don’t you LOVE that about your slow cooker?)

So if you’re like me – busy, crazy, hectic and you also kill pork chops when trying to cook them – make sure to give Crock Pot Honey Romano Pork Chops a chance. I’m not kidding it’s one of our favorite meals.

  1. These are yummy looking Chops and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a good week.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen

  2. Can you put all the ingredients together and freeze it?

  3. This looks delicious but my son’s can’t have dairy. Will the recipe still work without the cheese or should I alter the amounts of the other ingredients?
    Thanks.

    • I don’t need to know about freezer bags. I need to know if the recipe will be okay if I omit the cheese or if I should alter the quantities of the other ingredients to make up for the omission of cheese.
      Thanks.

      • Not sure why that reply posted to your question. None of us have prepared the recipe other than as posted, hopefully others have altered the recipe & can help answer your question.

        • I’m thinking it was for someone else 🙂

          I’ll give it a try without the cheese and let you know!

          • Hi Marjorie,
            I was wondering how it turned out without the cheese? My husband is lactose intolerant and would not be able to have this dish with chesse.
            Thanks!

          • I’m not Marjorie – but I think it would be ok without the cheese. A little less flavorful but it would still be yummy! Come back and let us know 😉

  4. This recipe looks amazing.

  5. I just made this and it was delicious!!! It didn’t look orange like the picture at ALL, and I put about of cup of milk extra in with the gravy because it was super thick, but I will definitely make this again!!!

    • It could have been my lighting! I didn’t have super thick gravy – but sometimes me and gravy – well we disagree – it’s so yummy though right???

  6. Hope Velez says:

    I just completed preparing the meals and was wondering for spices or any other tablespoon teaspoon ingredient is T tablespoon or teaspoon?

  7. Annette says:

    Can you use pork tenderloin instead? Would you cook it for same amount of time? Also would it be 1 or 2 tenderloins for this recipe?

  8. We don’t eat pork so I sub’d with Lamb Chops and it was fall off the bone tender and delicious! A little sweet for my honey so next time will use a little less honey 🙂

  9. This has easily become one of my all time favorite crock pot meals. Terrific flavor. Thank you for sharing!!!

  10. Dont know what I did wrong but this was a miss for me… Pork was too dry, the gravy was too thick, the cheese gave it an odd aroma, and the flavor was just bland.

    • Heather says:

      Julian – I guess this just isn’t a good meal for you. Sorry about that – my whole family loved it!

      Thanks for stopping over.

  11. Made it with a pork loin! I flipped halfway through the cooking! It was delicious! I took a serrated knife and cut it 3/4 way down in slices so that it would be slices when cooked and it was delicious! The gravy was perfect with mashed potatoes and homemade peasant bread!

  12. Just wondering if the cheese is the kraft grated Romano or did you use fresh grated Romano?

    Question; You mentioned that you rarely buy meat unless it’s on sale. Is it ok to stock up on meat in the freezer, thaw to assemble the recipes, then refreeze before cooking? I’ve always heard you shouldn’t refreeze meat.

    • 1 – my maiden name is the same as yours (it’s weird there aren’t that many of us!) 2 – NO don’t thaw out the meat to make the meal!!!!! DO NOT! 😉 I assemble the ingredients with my meat safely still in my freezer. (I divide up my meat when I buy it before I freeze it). Then at the very last second I put the meat in and pop it right back into the freezer. I haven’t had any problems with freezer burn doing it this way 😉 But my meat always stays frozen!

      • Christie Booden says:

        That is weird! My husbands family is from Chicago. Maybe we’re family? Lol.

        • probably – I am pretty sure down the Booden tree there are people in IL, WI and IN 😀 that’s just super weird (because there are none of us lol)

  14. Did you freeze the gravy mixture separately or just throw it all in one bag and then into the crockpot? Does the gravy mix up in the crockpot or should I make the gravy separately when I get home?

    • Skye, yes liquid does go into freezer bags with other ingredients unless otherwise noted. Enjoy 🙂

    • The gravy comes from the sauce that the meat cooks in. Then yes you have to pull some liquid out and make the gravy with the corn starch 🙂

  15. Would this recipe work with country style pork ribs?

  16. Thanks to my father who shared with me concerning this blog, this blog is really awesome.

  17. Hello,
    I was wondering if you could cook this just in a pan or in the oven? If so would it be the same compared to the crockpot?

  18. LonghornShannan says:

    Maybe it is the photo… but these pork chops l look breaded and fried to me?

    • I guess it’s the photo? not my best for sure. But no – they are not breaded and fried they were straight out of the slow cooker with some gravy on top 😉

      • LonghornShannan says:

        Super! If it looks like this straight out of the crockpot I know it will be a hit. I am trying it today!

      • LonghornShannan says:

        OK this pork was fabulous!!! So tender it fell apart. The sauce was yummy and a welcomed change to the typical fruity sauces that recipes often pair with pork. I love the way the sauce cakes on the chops creating almost a crust, hence the reason the photo almost looked fried. I will definitely share with others! Thank you for a wonderful dinner!

  19. Matthew McCarthy says:

    So happy to have found this blog! (I forget how I stumbled upon it). We have done the whole 20 meals and are happily waiting for dinner times for the month.
    I was just curious, what is the average serving size of this meal?
    We like to quantify things to see how much we are saving and what to look forward to.

    thank you so much for putting this all together!

    Take Care

    • Hi! I LOVE having freezer meals – you’re going to love it too.

      I made most of my meals to serve 4 people (however some recipes for sure had leftovers!)
