  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup cranberries, dried
  • 1 cup apples, dried
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, cider
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 each pork chop, boneless
  • 3 teaspoon thyme, fresh


  • Stir the onion, applesauce, cranberries, apple rings, honey, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a 6-quart slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle the pork chops on both sides with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt, then nestle them into the slow cooker on top of the onion and dried fruit mixture.
  • Cover and cook on high until the pork is very tender, about 6-8 hours on low or 3-5 hours on high. The total amount of time will vary depending on the thickness of your pork chops.
  • When tender and cooked through, remove the pork chops from the slow cooker to a platter and skim or remove the fat from the surface of the sauce. Taste the sauce and stir in additional salt, pepper or apple cider vinegar to taste.
  • Serve the pork chops warm with the sauce on top or on the side and sprinkled with fresh thyme.
