Cover and simmer the pork chops about 45 minutes to 60 minutes (depending on thickness of meat). Occasionally, turn chops and stir the gravy to keep it from scorching. During this time, you can add more milk to thin out the gravy as you desire.

I am going to try it tonight. I'm going to add mushrooms to the gravy, serving it over rice.

I hope you enjoy the meal... I don't eat mushrooms due to allergies.

No I haven't due to the gravy is milk based, an cooking in a slow cooker tends to create moisture and I'd be afraid too watery. But if you try it, let me know how it turns out, many thanks.

Have you ever tried cooking this in a crockpot after step 8 (where you add the meat back into the gravy? I was just wondering if it would work or not.

I n the pictures the gravy looks thick, the reason being; I tend to make the gravy thicker, as my family prefers it that way. But you can add more milk as the chops cook for the right consistency that you prefer your gravy to be.
