Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 4-9 hours
Makes 4 servings

4 pork loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick
1 Tbsp cooking oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced

1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup apple juice

Trim fat from chops. In a skillet brown chops on both sides in hot oil. Drian fat. In a 3 1/2-or 4-quart slow cooker place onion; add chops. Grind tapioca with a mortar and pestle. In a bowl, combine the tapioca with remaining ingredients; pour over chops.

(For a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker: Use 6 pork loin chops. Leave remaining ingredient amounts the same and prepare as above. Makes 6 servings.)
