Layered Pork

I'm going to share one of my favorite pork recipes that involve a crock pot. There are two ways that you can make this: the regular way and the soup way (a personal favorite).

Layered Pork
---------------------
Use your 5-gal crock.
6 center-cut pork chops, whole (if you're not using center-cut, cut off the bones and fat)
dash of celery salt
dash of seasoning salt
fresh ground pepper (I'm picky about my pepper)
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of celery
2 soup cans of water
6 baking potatoes (or 9 red potatoes), cubed
2 cups of baby carrots, or the equivalent of chopped regular carrots.
2 stalks of celery, or the same mass of shredded cabbage (I've tried and loved both)
1 large onion or two small chopped (I keep mine fairly chunky)

Turn your crock on HIGH and layer in order from bottom to top: carrots, celery (or cabbage), 3 pieces of pork, potatoes, onions, rest of pork. Then in a seperate container combine the soups, water, salts, and pepper. Add it on top of your layers. Cover and cook for 7-9 hours.


Soup Version
-------------------
Instead of leaving the pork whole, chop them up to about a square inch thick. Add 1 extra can of cream of celery and 1 more soup can of water. You obviously don't have to worry about putting these in any particular layer either. Cook the same amount of time.
