After reading through a recent bon appetit magazine, I was inspired by a chimichurri recipe that I saw. The recipe called for hours of marinating before even cooking the pork, and since I don’t have that kind of time, I adapted it for my slow-cooker. It turned out great and it will now be one of our “regulars!”

Slow-Cooker Chimichurri Pork

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 hours, 14 minutes

Yield: 2 generous size pork chops or ribs

Slow-Cooker Chimichurri Pork


  • 2 frozen boneless pork chops or country style boneless ribs
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (finely chopped)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place frozen pork in the bottom of your slow-cooker.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients (except for salt and pepper) together in a medium size bowl.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Pour sauce over pork and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  5. Serve with a side of roasted veggies of your choice and enjoy!


Slow-cooker cooking times vary, so I put mine on low for 10 hours and let the meat cook for 4 hours. It comes out perfectly juicy and tender!
