Pork Chops... Frozen solid to rubber?

tcmullinax | May 13, 201912:14 PM     21

Hi everyone,

I am brand new.

Two hours ago, I put two frozen thick cut bone-in pork chops in my new slow cooker on medium. Just now, I inserted the attached temperature probe into the center of a chop. The temperature was 170 degrees and the chops are rubbery. I was thinking they should cook for maybe four hours or so on medium? I left them in the pot on the "keep warm" setting. Should I have cooked them on low? Is my new slow cooker just running "hot"? They are nowhere near tender at this point. Where do I go from here?

Thanks so much.
