You don’t need much to make this easy BBQ Pork Chops Crockpot recipe!
- Pork chops – About 2 pounds.
- Potatoes – Peeled and cut into quarters.
- Baby carrots
- Onion – Yellow or white onion is fine.
- BBQ sauce – Use your favorite brand of BBQ sauce.
- Cola – You only need a cup, grab some ice and drink the rest! Cola or Dr Pepper both work well!
- Worcestershire sauce – Dig that bottle out of your fridge because it adds so much to this recipe!
- Salt and pepper
- Green onions – Chopped and added as a garnish.
What Kind of Pork Chops Do You Use For BBQ Pork Chops in the Crock-Pot?
You can use any kind of pork chops, but I like the bone-in ones the best. They have more flavor and fat, and the fat will melt off those chops and flavor the sauce in a crazy good way that’ll have you mopping all the last bits of sauce off your plate!
You don’t want to use boneless loin chops – they’ll be really dry even with the sauce.
What BBQ Sauce Do You Need For This BBQ Pork Chops Slow Cooker Recipe?
I loooooove me some Sweet Baby Rays, and they didn’t even pay me to say that. When I don’t have time to make BBQ sauce from scratch, that’s what I use.
Use your favorite bottled sauce. Use a sauce that’s not too sweet or spicy, and it’ll be perfect.
How To Make BBQ Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Vegetables
This recipe couldn’t be any easier – trust me!
- Add the potatoes, carrots, and onion to the bottom of your Crock-Pot. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
- Add the pork chops to the top of the vegetables, and sprinkle them with salt and pepper, too. You need to season each layer!
- Whisk the Worcestershire sauce, cola, ketchup, and BBQ sauce in a bowl. Spread this over the top of the chops.
- Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
- Garnish with chopped green onions, and dig in!
There are meat and potatoes right in this 1-dish meal, so you don’t need much else with it! I like to serve this Crock Pot BBQ Pork Chops and vegetable recipe with bread or Buttermilk Biscuits. I try to keep some biscuits in the freezer and they’re perfect with this dish to soak up all that yummy sauce.
When I’m craving veggies, I’ll whip up some extra broccoli or serve this hearty slow cooker pork chops recipe with a side salad.
Store your leftover slow cooker barbecue pork chops and vegetables in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, seriously, it is soo easy. Just layer in the veggies and chops, then cover with the sauce and let it cook low and slow all day long.
Yes, you can. If you’re in a hurry, warm the sauce up in the microwave before adding it to the slow cooker, and set the Crock-Pot on high for about 4 hours. It’s done when the veggies and pork are tender.
This recipe will take at least 8 hours on low, but you can speed it up and cook it on high in about 4 hours.

YUM! This looks amazing!!! I’m going to have to try this since I just started eating meat again.
Looks like I will give pork chops one more try, I can’t cook them at all
I’d love to hear your results, Amie – let me know how it turns out for you! 🙂
Is the cola optional? I never touch cola and don’t want to start so I’m hoping I can leave it out.
The cola works really well in this recipe, and is hard to replace. But, I’ve heard others using sweet tea instead of cola in recipes that call for it – as well as a mixture of coffee, a bit of vanilla, & brown sugar or molasses. Hope this helps!
I was wondering the same thing…thanks for the tip! I have used brewed tea before on pot roasts..I will try it with some molasses here!
got all the veggies chopped up. Was about to put pork chops in the crock pot. They smelled funny, so I’m using chicken instead. I sure hope this works lol!
I bet the chicken is great!
can you substitute pepsi instead of cola? and soy sauce instead of worchester?
You can sub the Pepsi for the Coke, but not soy sauce for the Worcestershire as it is very salty and just not the same.

Can I cook this on high to get it done quicker?
Yes, you can – but the lower & slower you cook, the more tender the meat will be 🙂
Can you substitute Pepsi Max (diet pepsi) and just add a little sugar?

I tried this one with a pork roast instead of pork chops and it was amazing! Even my extremely picky 10yr Olds wanted seconds!
I tried this the other night and I am sorry to say but I will never make it again. I halved the recipe and added garlic into the vegetables. It was bitter tasting and just overall not good at all. We never throw food away in our house and the leftovers went straight from the crock pot to the garbage.
Can I put this altogether in my crockpot the night before? Obviously the coke would lose its fizz overnight, but does this matter since you are cooking it anyway for a long time?

I NEVER DRINK COLA SO I REPLACED IT WITH PINEAPPLE JUICE AND PUT PINEAPPLE RINGS ON TOP OF PORK CHOPS. EVERYONE LOVED IT AT CHRISTMAS GATHERINGS. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS!
Wonderful – so glad you liked it!
I don’t do onions, didn’t have Worcester sauce, and used 7-up instead of cola. Cut portions down for two of us. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!
I CANNOT WAIT TO TRY THIS ONE….SOUNDS SO GREAT…..
I tried this recipe this morning. I only thing I didn’t have was Worcestershire sauce so instead I used A1. I got get in my crock pot now and will be done this evening. I’ll post a update. Thanks for the recipe. I usually do this dish differently but figured I’d try some different.
