Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Use a little bit of the oil to grease the base and halfway up the sides of the ceramic cooking pot.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, then sauté 2-3 min, until softened. Add the garlic and mushrooms to the pan then cook a further 5 min until softened. Stir in the oregano.
  3. Spoon half the mushroom mixture into the base of the ceramic cooking pot, then arrange half of the potato slices on top. Season with salt and pepper. Place the pork chops on top of the potatoes in a single layer. Pour about half of the hot broth over the top to cover the potatoes and prevent them from discolouring.
  4. Repeat the layers of the mushroom mixture and potatoes, finishing with a layer of neatly overlapping potatoes. Pour over the remaining broth (it should just cover the potatoes, so use a little less or more as necessary.
  5. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'high' for 5 h, or until the potatoes and meat are very tender. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
