Crockpot Pork Chops
Crockpot Pork Chops are the easiest slow cooker recipe ever. Toss and go. Toss it all in the crockpot and you return to perfectly tender, melt in your mouth pork cooked in the most spectacular sauce. It is a little sweet, a little spicy, a little barbeque-y (yes I made that word up) and a lot delicious. Prepped in just 5 minutes.
I know I have been professing my love for my crockpot lately like a teenage girl does her first boyfriend, but I can not help myself. This thing is amazing! I mean really, the weekend was so busy that I didn't have time to stand in front of the stove for 30 minutes preparing dinner at the end of a long day, so I tossed in my ingredients and went about my fun. When I came back to it, dinner was cooked!?!?
I am not sure why I resisted my slow cooker for so long. But, honestly, it is about as good as having a private chef. LOL. I even tossed together these beauties that everyone is going nuts over, last week, and can't wait to make more.
These Crockpot Pork Chops are that easy. Seriously you will toss the ingredients into the slow cooker and come back to it hours later to find perfectly tender, melt in your mouth pork cooked in the most spectacular sauce. It is a little sweet, a little spicy, a little barbeque-y (yes I made that word up) and a lot delicious.
I made a quick chicken flavored rice side dish (http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2015/02/chicken-rice-simple-side-dish-recipe.html) and broccoli, to serve with this pork and let me just tell you that the sauce served over the rice and broccoli. OH MY GOODNESS! AH-MAZING. Good enough to drink with a straw. Well.... Maybe not. But pretty darn close.

Crockpot Pork Chops
SERVES 8 | ACTIVE TIME 5 Min | TOTAL TIME 7 Hours 5 Minutes
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1-3 tablespoon red chile paste (I used Gourmet Garden)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3-5 pounds boneless pork chops (thick cut 1"- 1 1/2")
1/4 cup cornstarch
Add ingredients (except pork chops and corn starch) in a 6-quart slow cooker. Stir to combine. Add pork chops. Toss to coat with the sauce. Cook on low 6 hours.
After 6 hours, combine equal amounts cornstarch and water in a mason jar. Close the lid, to seal the jar. Shake the living tar out of it, to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the crockpot. Stir and cover, cook 1 more hour.
Serve and enjoy!
DONNA'S NOTES: Add chili paste according to your desired heat level. We used 3 tablespoons as we like a little kick. If you prefer it more mild add less, or omit it altogether. It is fabulous either way.
