Recipe by Gerry sans Sanddunes
I work with developmentally-challenged adults - a few without dentures, some without the motor-skills to handle knives and forks. My extraordinarily clever supervisor came up with this recipe allowing them (and a spoon) to enjoy the taste of a good pork chop. The meat falls from the bone and shreds easily. The sauce creates a taste of China.

I've always been a big fan of sweet and sour anything so when I saw this recipe I jumped at the chance to make it. I was able to triple the recipe and make it for our guest at our last dinner party. It was a BIG hit. They all loved it!!! I'm glad I found recipezaar and this great recipe. Thanks!!!
- 4 pork chops
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup tomato ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup soya sauce
- 1 cup water
Directions See How It's Made
- Set the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Trim excess fat off the pork chops.
- Add oil to frying pan and heat on high.
- Add garlic and swirl around for 30 seconds- don't let it brown or burn.
- Lower heat under frying pan. Brown the chops on both sides.
- Remove chops and place in an ovenproof baking dish in a single layer.
- Scrape the garlic and "brown bits" from the frying pan onto the top of the chops.
- Mix remaining ingredients together well and pour over the chops.
- Place chops into the oven.
- Lower heat to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Leave chops in the oven for 2 hours or more.
- When the chops come from the oven - the longer the better - the meat will fall from the bones and the fat is easily removed.
- Shred the pork and return it to the "sauce".
- Leave the meat in the oven until you are ready-to-serve.
- Serve over rice.
