I saw this recipe for Minnesota Pork Chops on a friend’s blog Norine’s Nest. I knew the minute I saw this recipe I had to try it in the slow cooker. I am guessing this recipe is named Minnesota pork chops because wild rice is grown in Minnesota.

Though after I had made the recipe I looked at my box of wild rice and saw that it is from California, though I decided to not call this California pork chops, where ever you get your wild rice from this meal will be good.

I didn’t change much from Norine’s recipe except I did use Minute® rice and wild rice instead of a rice blend. Minute rice always does well for me as does wild rice in the slow cooker. Did you know that wild rice isn’t actually rice it’s really a grain, no wonder there is such a texture difference?

I really enjoyed the flavor of the mushrooms with the wild rice. The pork chops were very tender as well.

Sarah’s Notes

Can I use regular rice instead of Minute Rice?
No, standard rice will not work in the slow cooker. It gets chalky and mushy.

    These pork chops were the best I’ve tasted in a long long time!!! They were moist and flavorful!! I had four potatoes on the counter and they went on top of the onions and got done perfectly ….what a great meal as I added roasted asparagus (not in slow cooker).
