Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

A long time family-favorite pork chop recipe! This can also be made on top of the stove in a large skillet. If desired you can brown the chops before placing in the crockpot, I like to add in a couple tablespoons fresh minced garlic also. Serve with hot cooked rice if desired.

Very yummy! The pork was very tender, but a little dry. Sear it before crock-potting will probably solve this problem. I am going low carb, so I cut out the brown sugar, added some KC masterpiece BBQ sauce (low calorie/carb) and some cayanne pepper. I cut out the celery and added red pepper. Did not have stewed tomatoes, used paste with 1 cup water. Substituted cider vinegar with red wine vinegar. Substituted chicken bouillon for beef. Wow, I had to adjust this a lot, but I started cooking before making sure I had all the ingredients :-P It came out pretty yummy anyway :-)
