    I thought I reviewed this already but I guess I didn't. I love this recipe and have cooked it lots of times already. I have also tried it with chicken instead of pork chops and it's still fantastic! I like to use the left over sauce over my rice.

    I make these chops alot. The 1/4 cup crushed chili flakes is an error. It's supposed to be 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes. We call these San Francisco Chops. I got this recipe from TOH Slow Cooker Favorites cookbook and the recipe is the same except for the amount of chili flakes (no one could eat 1/4 cup!) and the cold water should be at the bottom of the recipe, with the cornstarch. I fixed the original recipe here to include these changes.

    I cooked 3 thinner, bone-in chops.The pork chops had a good flavor. To make the gravy, I poured the leftover sauce into another pot to add the cornstarch/flour to it. It heated up better on the stove, then I poured over the chops for the last 30min. I didn't have chili flakes, but some cayenne pepper with chili powder worked wonders, a nice little kick. Ate it with stir fry rice (extra veggies in it). Will definitely make again.

    Wow!!! These were delicious!!!! I added some sliced onions and more garlic. Also doubled the sauce cuz I had 7 pork chops. I was worried that this wasn't gonna turn out. All the good reviews and there has been many times when I am the one that doesn't like it. Very glad I tried it! First time I have ever done pork chops in the crockpot. It is kind of like chicken adobo, which we love. The soy and the brown sugar really balance each other out. Didn't get too much heat from the red pepper. We ate it with white rice and broccoli. We did add siraccha for some heat. This didn't thicken up for me in the crockpot and by putting it on high for the last 30 min I think it dried it out a little bit. 30 minutes earlier they were more succulent. I even tried taking the lid off to get it to thicken. Next time I will take the liquid out and thicken over the stove. I totally forgot to take a pic. Will do it tomorrow with the leftovers. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks!!!!

    I thought this was very flavorful and came out tender, though it got a lukewarm reaction from my husband. I think I would have been better off not to thicken the sauce. I think I over cooked the sauce in the process of thickening it, and it seemed to lose flavor. <br/><br/>I should also note that this took only about 4.5 hours to cook in my Deni 6 qt slow cooker, and I opened the cooker once to turn the meat.

    I made the recipe as directed except to substitute boneless ribs instead of chops, and use one tablespoon of chili powder instead of 1/4 cup. That was more than enough chili pepper. I'd say it was just about right. This was pretty good; very different from our normal foods but tasty. I couldn't get the sauce to thicken in the crock so I pulled it out to a pan to thicken, which worked nicely. I didn't think the flavor was the slightest bit Oriental, but it was good. I might make this again, and if I do it will be without change; the flavors melded well and it was good even though it didn't have the "wow" factor ;)

Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
