These slow cooker Italian pork chops are the creation of using up bits and pieces from my pantry and freezer while I pack up the house to move interstate. Another bonus is that once the initial prep is completed, these simply cooked in the slow cooker while I continued with the madness that is moving house with 3 kids and a dog.

While not a traditional Italian recipe, the simple ingredients combine to create super-tender meat in a lovely tomato-herb sauce that is perfect for soaking up with loads of mash potato and crusty bread. The olives can be any type you like – I had only green ones for this recipe, but kalamata ones would be nice too!
