In addition to being delicious, this recipe smells AMAZING as it cooks! :)
6 pork chops (medium thickness, bone-in or boneless)
1 cup apricot jam
3 T brown sugar
1 t kosher salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ginger
1/4 t cloves
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges (needed on-hand for serving day)
Place all ingredients in large freezer bag. Mix well, remove air, & freeze.
Serving Day: Thaw completely in fridge. Pour contents of bag into slow cooker. Add the entire can of mandarin oranges (with juice!) evenly over the top. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or on high for about 4 hours. Serve with rice to soak up the yummy juice.
