- 4 boneless pork chops
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

- 1/2 cup heavy cream or sour cream
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)
- Season the pork chops with salt and black pepper on both sides.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil. Brown the pork chops for about 2-3 minutes per side until they develop a golden crust. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set them aside.

- Place the browned pork chops on top of the mushroom mixture in the slow cooker.
- Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours or on high heat for 2-3 hours, or until the pork chops are tender and fully cooked.
