This is a great one pot meal with a slightly sweet taste.  Tasty, nutritious and gluten-free! If you have vegetables and broth left over, use an immersion blender and turn the leftovers into soup!  If you don’t want the soup, use 6 pork chops and the recipe will provide enough vegetables for 6 servings.


  • 4 centre cut pork chops
  • 1 small sweet onion (or half a large one), sliced
  • 2 medium apples, skin on and sliced
  • 15 to 20 mini yellow flesh potatoes (or use large potatoes and cut in 1 inch pieces)
  • 2 to 3 large carrots, sliced on an angle
  • 3 to 4 cups chopped fresh kale
  • 2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 cup low salt chicken broth
  • 2 large bay leaves
  • about ½ tsp of sea salt
  • about ¼ tsp ground pepper


  1. If you have a slow cooker with a browning option, quickly brown the pork chops in a little olive oil.  Once they are lightly browned add the onion and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat
  2. Remove pork chops and set aside  
  3. Add the apples to the onion.  Next add potatoes, and carrots.  Return pork chops to the pot
  4. Pour in broth and wine.  Then add bay leaves, salt and pepper. Stir lightly to combine the liquids
  5. Add the kale and cover
  6. Cook on low for about 4 hours to 5 hours

Tip:  If you don’t have the browning option on your slow cooker, just add the uncooked pork chops on top of the apples and onions and add all ingredients.
