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.
