The first time I made the recipe below, I seared an entire pork roast and then placed it into the slow cooker on top of quartered potatoes and onions. Once I took the entire lot out of the slow cooker at the end of cooking time, I realized that it was a little bit like French onion soup. And then I realized I wanted it to be even more like French onion soup. So this is what I did.
First, I used pork chops instead of roast, simply because that's what was in my freezer at the time. Realizing that French onion soup also needs cheese, I shredded up some mozzarella. Along the line of croutons, I thinly sliced potatoes instead of quartering them. The result? An entire meal reminiscent of a favorite appetizer. Scroll down to see the full recipe.
Pro tip: To develop even more flavor in the pork, sear it quickly in a skillet before placing it in the slow cooker.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
