So needless to say I’ve been on a mission meal planning this last week, (and probably next.) I will use the least amount of heat possible! I’m sure you’ve all heard about this horrific weather Southern California is having and I’m done with it! It’s even too hot to grill outside. I refuse to use the oven or a stove while this nightmare heat sticks around, so besides our favorite salads, I’ve resorted to making the crockpot my BFF.
I really had this craving for tender boneless pork chops, and was super lazy to search for a recipe on Pinterest or Williams Sonoma, so I winged something up with only things I had in the pantry and I was floored when tasted DELISH! JetSet Dad said, and I quote, “These are the most tender and juiciest pork chops you’ve ever made. They are sooooo good. Can you make these again?”
While I thought the pork chops were fantastic, the vegetables – baby potatoes, baby carrots and sliced mushrooms – were AMAZING. More importantly, why wait for St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy a great Guinness stout crock pot recipe? That’s what I thought!
Guinness Pork Chops and Vegetables Crock Pot Style
- A package of (4) four 1″ thick boneless pork tenderloin chops.
- Handful of diced sweet onions
- Two (2) cloves of garlic
- One bottle of Guinness Stout
- Golden baby potatoes cut up into halves or quarters.
- A bag of whole baby carrots.
- Sliced white mushrooms.
- Sprig of rosemary.
- One (1) envelope of Lipton Onion Dip mix.
1. I beat the boneless chops with a meat tenderizer, and rubbed some pressed garlic on them. (The longer you let them sit in the fridge, the better.)
2. Add chopped onion and garlic to the crock pot. Set to LOW temperature.
3. Add chops then “set it and forget it” for about 2.5 – 3 hours.
4. Add small cut golden potatoes, baby carrots, sliced white mushrooms and a sprig of rosemary.
5. Pour the contents of one (1) Lipton Onion Soup packet over all the ingredients, and mix.
6. Pour one bottle or can of Guinness Stout beer in the crock pot, making sure to cover all the vegetables and the chops are ‘soaking’ at the bottom.
7. Replace lid to crock pot and again, “set it and forget it” for another 2 hours on HIGH or 4 hours on LOW.
And… DONE. Ready to serve.
