      Nice change from my usual pork chop dishes! I doubled the recipe & added a teaspoon of red pepper flakes since we enjoy sweet/hot flavors. Served over jasmine rice as suggested, this was a hit at my dinner table. Thanks for posting!

      Undaunted by my lack of crockpot, I made this on the stove top. Followed steps 1-5 as stated. Instead of putting the chops in the crokpot at step side, I put them aside on a plate. Followed steps 7 and 8, then returned the pork chops to the skillet. Covered my skillet and set it on the lowest possible flame for 2 hours. Resisted all temptation to lift the lid before then. The meat was wonderfully tender, so much so no knives were needed. I found the sauce a touch too sweet and felt the tomato paste was a bit too prominent. Made a small adjustment by adding a teaspoon of vinegar and 2 or 3 nickel sized pieces of ginger (later removed before serving). Felt this created a little more contrast and actually enhanced the fruity flavor of the dish. Just Yummy. Thanks Paula.
