Long and sloooow in the slow cooker is the key to these succulent pork chops. The maple syrup, balsamic and grapes makes the dish sweet, sour and a little sticky all at once, all complimented with the creaminess of feta - it's heaven!
Ingredients1kg (6-8) pork belly rashers, trimmed of excess fat
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 red onions, cut into thin wedges
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons finely chopped thyme
1 teaspoon seeded mustard
1/4 cup chicken stock
3 cups (300g) seedless red grapes
120g feta, crumbled
¼ cup chopped parsley
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat (or if your slow cooker has a browning option utilise that). Cook pork rashers for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from the heat and pour off any excess fat. Add the maple syrup and vinegar to deglaze the pan.
- Transfer maple balsamic juices and pork rashers to the slow cooker dish. Add the onions, garlic, thyme, mustard and grapes and gently stir to combine.
- Cover and cook for 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW. Top with feta 30 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
