Mustard, marjoram, and orange marmalade give bone-in pork chops a wonderfully sweet and spicy flavor in this easy slow-cooker recipe.
or medium acorn squash (1 1/2 to 2 pounds total)
onion, halved and sliced
pork chops (with bone), 3/4 inch thick (2 1/2 to 2 3/4 pounds total)
tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
teaspoon dried marjoram or thyme, crushed
teaspoon ground black pepper
1. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Discard seeds and membranes. Cut each half into three wedges. In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, place squash and onion. Trim fat from chops. Place chops on top of squash and onion in cooker.
2. In a small bowl, stir together broth, marmalade, mustard, marjoram, and pepper. Pour broth mixture over chops and vegetables in cooker.
3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Transfer chops and vegetables to a serving platter, reserving cooking juices; cover chops and vegetables and keep warm.
