My family is very southern, and this recipe tastes so familiar to me, without having to tend the stove! I make this recipe at least once a month and my family loves it. I make it exactly as written most of the time, but if I forget to pick up condensed chicken broth at the store I have found that 1 1/2 cups of regular chicken broth + one bouillon cube works just as well. Use ALL of the seasoning mixture on the chops (bone-in is critical for moist, fall apart chops) and between that and the broth we find this dish plenty flavorful, no additional salt needed. The onions just melt into the peas, adding even more flavor. I keep the seasonings as written because I have small children who don't like spice. My husband and I add pepper sauce to the peas at the table to spice it up. I have tried this with frozen black-eyed peas, not as good, and it doesn't cook in the allotted time. Field peas are more tender and cook faster; if you try black-eyed peas you'll need another hour.
Slow-Cooker Pork Chops and Field Peas
Browning the pork chops and onions adds an extra layer of flavor to this dish. We love it served with hot cooked rice and chowchow.
