SRC: Crockpot Islander Pork Chops

Time for the June Secret Recipe Club reveal!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I recieved Angela's Kitchen. Angela's kitchen is a gluten and dairy free blog- perfect for our household. There were tons of delicious recipes, but I was on the look out for a crockpot recipe. Life with Kellen is very busy and I love finding a new crockpot recipe to make the weeknights a little easier. I came across her recipe for Islander Pork Roast. The recipe caught my attention because it was different than most "island" recipe I see and it looked adaptable for the pork chops I had in my freezer. The recipe is really easy to put together (who can beat "set it and forget it"). I stayed pretty close to the original recipe besides using pork chops over a pork roast. Ron and I loved the flavors of the pork chops! They are sweet and salty with a subtle bite from the cloves.  Thank you Angela for an awesome new recipe!


4 thick cut boneless pork chops
1 teaspoons ground cloves
1 cup canned mandarin oranges
1 cups canned crushed pineapple, with juice
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoons ground pepper


 Rub each pork chop with ground cloves and place in crockpot. Mix all other ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour over pork. Cook 7-8 on low.


  1. This sounds delish! I love the addition of pumpkin pie spice.

  2. They sound tasty and I love that you make them in crock pot. Great SRC choice!

  3. Between the mandarin oranges and the pineapples I bet these have a great flavor and even my kids would like them! Awesome!

  4. I'm a fan of crockpot recipes not involving cream soups... and that addition of pumpkin pie spice sounds intriguing!

  5. This is a great recipe for the Pork Chops with fantastic flavor and even better because it is in the Crockpot. Hope you are having a great week.

  6. These sound great for summer. Nice pick

  7. The pumpkin pie spice looks like a fun addition. Slow cooker recipes are the best, especially this time of year! :)
