Salsa Pork Chops

Another try at a new pork chop recipe...this one is just eh....pretty good flavor, but not as good as the teriakyi pork chops I made last week.

CrockPot Recipe for Salsa Pork Chops with Cumin, Garlic, and Lime
Adapted from Kayln's Kitchen

4 pork chops with fat trimmed
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper (or less if you're not a pepper fan)
1 T olive oil (or less for a non-stick pan)
1 cup salsa
2 T fresh-squeezed lime juice
(If you want more sauce you could use 1 1/2 cups salsa and 3 T lime juice)

Trim all fat around the edges of pork chops and discard fat.  Combine ground cumin, garlic powder, salt, and fresh ground black pepper in a small bowl; then use the spice mixture to rub the trimmed pork chops on both sides. 

Spray sides and bottom of the slow cooker with olive oil or non-stick spray.  Put pork chops into the slow cooker, pour over salsa-lime mixture, and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until the pork chops are very tender when pierced with a fork.  (I switched them halfway through so the ones on the bottom were on the top, but it's not essential.) 

Serve hot, with a little sauce spooned over each pork chops.
