This recipe we found in the Better Holmes and Gardens Slow Cooker Cookbook.
Ingredients You'll Need
6 boneless pork sirloin chops, cut 1 inch thick
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Sprinkle both sides of chops with salt and pepper, then sprinkle chops with thyme. Place chops in a 4 quart slow cooker. In a bowl combine marmalade and mustard. Remove 4 tablespoons of the mixture, cover and refrigerate. Add 1/4 cup water to the rest of the marmalade mixture and pour over the pork chops.
Cover and cook on low heat setting for 6 1/2 hours or on high heat setting for 3 1/2 hours. Transfer pork chops to serving platter; discard cooking liquid. Spread reserved marmalade mixture over pork chops. Serve with brown rice pilaf and steamed vegetables.
