Alton Brown’s Slow Cooker Pepper Pork

Alton Slow Cooker Pork

This is a recipe review, which means this is a recipe that I did not personally come up with, but that I tried out and am giving my opinion on how the recipe turned out. For legal reasons I cannot post these recipes, but I can tell you where you can get them yourself.

If you are looking for a good pork recipe, then give this one from Alton Brown a try. Alton shows how pork and pepper go oh so well together. This dish can be cooked in a slow cooker or even an electric skillet that is set to a low setting. The pork comes out so tender, it will be falling off the bone. Here are my notes for this recipe.

1. The recipe calls for dried apple slices, and I have never included them. I usually serve a fried apple dish along with my pork chops.
2. For the brine, I recommend cutting back the salt to 1/4 cup and not doing a brine past 6 hours. I have read other people say it was too salty when they followed the recipe exactly. I would rather under salt then over salt.
3. I also don’t always use the onion. If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that I am not really huge on onions.
4. Make sure to use at least 1 tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper when starting your slow cooking. If you are not a big pepper fan I would look for another recipe. The whole point of this recipe is to showcase the power of the peppercorn.

This is another winner from Alton Brown. I have made it for multiple guests and they all loved it.
