French Pork Chops

This is one of those recipes that made my husband, Jaimie, say, "Man, that was good!".  I found this on foodnetwork.com under Sandra Lee's most popular recipes.  I'm always looking for something that I can put in the slow cooker.  This one was a hit with the whole family.  It's a one-pot meal.  I baked some frozen yeast rolls to go with it and dinner was served.  I have changed it just a bit to suit my family's tastes.  The original recipe calls for button mushrooms and whole tomatoes.  Like all recipes, you can tweak it, too.  I hope you like it!
