Tips for making the best boneless pork chops

Using thick-cut chops is essential. Thinner cuts cook too quickly so you will not have the same results.

Add chili paste according to your desired heat level. We use 3 tablespoons for a little kick. If you prefer a milder flavor, add less or omit it altogether. It is fabulous either way.

Cook times will vary based on your Crockpot and the thickness of your chops. It’s important that you don’t overcook your meat or it will be dry and tough.

Why we use boneless pork chops

We like to use boneless meat for this recipe because it reduces the cooking time. Just be sure that you use a thick-cut chop so the meat stays juicy.

Also, when choosing the meat, look for cuts that have some fat (marbling).

Lean meat isn’t the best choice for crockpot cooking – you need the fat and marbling to keep the food moist.

When it’s time to remove them from the slow cooker, you will need to use a spatula to take them out of the slow cooker. This is because they are so tender, they may even fall apart.

Will the recipe work with bone in pork chops?

Yes, you can make this recipe with bone in chops if you want to.

Be sure to look for chops between 1 and 1 1/2 inches thick. Also, be careful not to cook them for too long. Overcooked meat will be dry and tough.

Can you freeze the leftovers?

Yes, you can easily freeze leftover chops. Just place them in an airtight container or a freezer bag. Then, store them in the freezer and use them within 6 months.

How to reheat leftovers

Reheating leftover pork couldn’t be easier!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Then, add 2 tablespoons of water or beef broth to a baking pan.
  2. Place the meat in the pan and cover it with aluminum foil.
  3. Then, cook them for between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chops.

Ingredients
 

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red chile paste, 1 – 3 tablespoons, I used Gourmet Garden
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 pounds boneless pork chops, 3 to 5 pounds, thick cut 1"- 1 1/2"
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • Add ingredients (except pork chops and corn starch) to a 6-quart slow cooker. Stir to combine. Add pork chops. Toss to coat with the sauce. Cook on low 4 hours.
  • After 4 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.
  • Check for doneness with an instant-read digital cooking thermometer. The internal temperature of the chops should be at least 145°F. If the pork chops need longer, cover the pot and continue cooking.
  • Serve and enjoy!

  1. I am making this right now on my cast iron pan on stove top. I have four thick cut pork chops. I browned them first because I read it seals the flavor in. I did add onion and mushrooms and some white wine. I put chops on top to simmer. I misread recipe and bought Thai sweet chili sauce. I sure hope it's not spicy as I didn't try it.
    Since I am simmering on stove top instead of crackpot, how long should I cook it?
    Can't wait to have this with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

  2. Has anyone ever cooked these on high in less time? I'm a bit late starting them and not sure if it's worth trying to rush it.

    1. Yes we have. Try 2 hours, check the pork chops and add the slurry. Cook one more hour. Serve and enjoy! Let us know how it goes.

    2. Worked out and was delicious!
      Have you ever imite de the ketchup? Or used a replacement? Want to make it again but am out of ketchup, I wonder if there's a chance to replace it or if I need to make a trip to the grocery store.

  3. I prepared this recipe in the crockpot yesterday. Put in the fridge over night and it is just starting cooking as i am texting ! first time trying it ! Can wait to be back from work for dinner !

    1. Hi Candy! I am so happy to hear you loved it. Cook times can vary in slow cookers. I would check the chops after 3 hours. If they are done or nearly done then only cook them one more hour in the sauce. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  4. This is a great, easy recipe. I'd recommend doubling the sauce though. We made these and served over brown rice. This one's a keeper recipe!

  5. This recipe is so good. I now make it with chicken sometimes and my 14 yr old grandson eats about half the pan lol.

    1. Cooking times vary in slow cookers. It may have cooked too long. I would try again but check them at 4 hours. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  6. I'm absolutely baffled by some of these questions and comments. If you are able to look up recipes, you are able to look up substitutions for the ingredients listed. Also, if you alter the recipe, don't critique this one when you didn't follow the directions as written. One more thing, don't ask stupid questions without reading the other stupid questions in the comments section. Chances are, someone already asked how to mix cornstarch and water.

  7. I have very little sauce – checked to see if I was to add some type of liquid but recipe doesn't say to. What did I do incorrectly. They smell fantastic

    1. The added ingredients will combine to create a sauce. It is possible that it cooked off. But, it really shouldn't have a lot of 'liquid'. More like a sauce to coat the chops. Enjoy!

  8. I do not live in a very small town (600,000 people) but went to 3 different stores to find Red Chili Paste. All i could find was Red Curry Paste…i read the ingredients and sounded Ok. Anyone have this issue?

  9. There are two different times for cooking.video shows setting crockpot to 4 hours.directions say 7 hours total.could you explain?

    1. Yes, that was changed. After further testing in multiple slow cookers we found that 5 hours was the average perfect time.

  10. I bought the incorrect chops! Center cut and boneless but not thick. I'm thinking I could just cut the cook time. Any thoughts?

  11. This recipe has really good flavor. I didn't have chili paste so I used a chili garlic sauce & sriracha sauce. This would make a great pulled pork on homemade tortillas.

  12. Can I use flour instead of corn starch? Also I have thin bone in chops, how long should I cook? Thank you, sounds delicious!

  13. I am completely blown away. the sauce is unbelievable. It has such a great taste and consistency. The chops are so tender I'll have to take a picture while they're in the pot because otherwise they're falling apart. Thanks so much for an incredible recipe, I already know it will be a family favorite.

  14. How long should I cook this recipe using chicken breasts in this sauce, and do I still cook them at low?

  15. Did anyone use the instant pot slow cooker. If so how did it turn out. I still haven't used that function but thought this might be my first recipe for it.
