Bone-in pork chops are a weeknight favorite. This time, we’re giving them an even easier spin by preparing them in the slow cooker.

Just 20 minutes of hands-on time and four and a half hours total is all that stands between you and a five-star recipe that the whole family will love. Serve Pork Marsala over thick egg noodles for a one-dish meal that they’ll be asking for time and again.
- 1/2 (about 2 1/8 oz.), plus 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, divided
- 6 (1-in.-thick) bone-in center-cut pork chops
- 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
- 16 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 1/3 cup finely chopped shallot (1 large shallot)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup dry Marsala wine
- 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 16 ounces thick egg noodles, cooked
- 3 tablespoons salted butter
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
How to Make
Place 1/2 cup of the flour in a shallow dish. Dredge pork chops in flour. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add 3 pork chops, and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Repeat with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil and remaining 3 pork chops.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet. Add mushrooms, shallot, thyme, and garlic; cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are slightly softened and lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add wine, and bring to a simmer, stirring to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet. Transfer mushroom mixture to slow cooker. Add broth, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker; cover and cook on LOW until pork chops are tender, about 4 hours.
Place noodles on a serving platter; top with pork chops, and loosely tent with aluminum foil to keep warm. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium; add remaining 3 tablespoons flour; cook, whisking constantly, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Gradually whisk in mushroom mixture; cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley. Pour sauce over pork chops and noodles.
