- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme

- Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Brown the pork chops and place them in the slow cooker. Add the onion and garlic to the skillet and sauté until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the thyme, rosemary, beer, lemon zest, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper to the pan.
