Slow-Cooked Cherry Pork Chops

I mixed and matched several recipes to come up with this one. I'm always happy to adapt recipes for my slow cooker. It's so easy to prepare a meal that way. —Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas

    I Loved this recipe. Allspice or cloves can be substituted for mace.

    I have been making this recipe for years. My family loves it. One year my husband took the crockpot and the ingredients for this recipe up north hunting with his friends. He made this in the crockpot and then they went out hunting for awhile. The men came back in from the cold, tired, and hungry. They all loved it. There was no leftovers.

    Absolutely delicious. (I did not use the mace, either.) There were no leftovers, so I will have to make it again! :)

    Kids really loved it and it was so easy. I didn't use the mace at all but I think nutmeg would be a good substitute instead. Would do this one again.

    Loved this recipe! Very easy and not many ingredients. My 9 year old is a very picky eater and he absolutely loved these pork chops. I will definately make these again.

    I cooked for 3 hours on low, and chops were moist and cut-with-your-fork-tender. Substituted nutmeg for mace. Definitely making this again!

    I have made a similar dish but I browned the chops, put them in a baking dish, poured the cherry pie filling over them and baked them at 350* for abt 30 minutes. Or, pan fry the chops and serve the pie filling on the side at the table. Either way, they are good.

    We had this dish tonight, and 4 hours are way too long. It dries the chops out. But they were good.
