Place 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 briskly, to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the crockpot. Stir and cover. Cook 1 more hour.
Serve and enjoy!
You can add more or less chile paste to satisfy your taste, or omit it altogether. My family likes a little heat, so I used 3 tablespoons.
