Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place pork chops evenly in the bottom of either a 3.5 quart casserole slow cooker or a 6 quart or larger slow cooker.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the hoisin sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger until combined to create the sauce.
  3. Pour sauce evenly over pork chops in the slow cooker and spread with a spatula or the back of a spoon to evenly coat the top of each pork chop.
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
  5. Pour or spoon the liquid from the slow cooker into a small saucepan leaving the pork chops in the slow cooker. Recover and turn the slow cooker to the WARM setting to keep the pork chops warm.
  6. Place the saucepan with the cooking liquid on the stove-top and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  7. In a small bowl mix together the 2 tablespoons of corn starch with 4 tablespoons of cold water until no lumps appear to create a thickening slurry.
  8. Whisk the thickening slurry into the simmering liquid and continue to cook while whisking until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Serve the pork chops with a little bit of the thickened sauce poured over each pork chop.
Recipe Notes

Freezer Meal Instructions:

  • Add pork chops to a gallon sized zippered freezer bag.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the hoisin sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger until combined to create the sauce.
  • Pour sauce over the pork chops in the freezer bag and massage the pork chops to coat fully in the sauce.
  • Lay the bag on a flat surface and seal the bag while pushing out as much excess air as possible (or seal bag with a Foodsaver).
  • Label bag with name of recipe, ingredients, date and cooking instructions and place in the freezer.
  • To cook: Thaw freezer meal in the refrigerator overnight OR in a sink of cool water for several hours until the contents of the bag are partially thawed and can easily be removed from the bag.
  • Add contents of the bag to the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours from the partially thawed state.
  • Follow the directions above for thickening the sauce with the corn starch.

**This recipe cooks better on the HIGH setting for a shorter time period. Cooking the pork chops on LOW for a longer period of time tends to dry the pork chops out.
