Description

This recipe is super easy, cooks all by itself in the crockpot and is waiting for me and my family after a long day at work.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Pork Chops (1-inch Thick)
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cups Red Wine
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon Cold Water
  • 2 cups Hot Cooked Rice, For Serving
  • ¼ cups Green Onions, Sliced

Preparation

In a skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in oil; transfer to a slow cooker. Add garlic to the drippings in your skillet; cook and stir until aromatic or golden. Stir in soy sauce, wine, brown sugar and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over chops in the slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or until meat is tender. Remove chops – they will probably be falling apart by this time! Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into slow cooker. Return chops to slow cooker. Cover and cook for at least 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Serve over rice and garnish with green onions, if desired.

I followed the recipe to the letter, and it smelled awesome, but my pork chops ended up dry, and I wished there was more sauce even though I did add extra red wine. I am seeing all these great reviews and am jealous! I wonder what I could do differently, I really want to like these!

In the slow cooker now. But, I already tasted it and wow is it good !! Thank You so much for this. I am always looking for a different way to do chops. By the way, I used thick boneless chops.

If you use thinner sliced chops reduce the cook time significantly, and I would recommend using a smaller crock pot if available. Also Double the sauce, so you have plenty for your eating needs. EXCELLENT!

Made these last night and they came out delish! Used thinner chops, cooked them less time. Loved the sticky sauce!

I don’t know what I did wrong. The sauce smelled heavenly when I started out but while I was gone all day, the sauce boiled out and burned. I don’t know if the 1/2 cup liquid wasn’t enough or what…I had my slow cooker on low. Am I missing something?

My family loved this recipe – so much so that my teenage sons asked for it to be on the regular menu rotation.

The family definitely enjoyed this! After reading the reviews, I doubled the amount of sauce and had the meat in the crockpot for about 6.5hrs on low-the chops came out perfect. The only thing I will do differently next time is use low sodium soy sauce only because the one I used made the dish a bit too salty

I agree with two of the other reviews, the meat was very dry. I followed the recipe exactly. I would have liked more sauce to spoon over the rice. Next time I might try on the stove instead of the crockpot.

Family loved the dish! Mine didn’t look as professional when it was done, the sauce wasn’t as thick but it was still super yummy!

Definitely will be making this again!

I have to say, i was really looking forward to making this. I bought bone in thick cut pork chops and cooked them in my slow cooker for 8 hours. The flavor was amazing, however the meat wasnt as tender as I had hoped. The meat closest to the bone was very tender and succulent, but the rest of the meat was dry! I might try this with some short ribs next time!
