Slow cooker pork chops are a favorite in our house. This recipe is so versatile and makes a perfect freezer meal. I like to buy pork chops in bulk at Costco and package 4 pork chops at a time in a ziplock bag or vacuum seal the bag with the sauce. Keeps for up to 6 months in the freezer.
There are many variations to this recipe, you can swap out the soy sauce and use amino acids. You can replace the brown sugar with honey. That’s what makes this recipe so easy to work with. I hope you enjoy it!
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1-3 tablespoon Sriracha
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 thick cut boneless pork chops
Splash of chicken broth (optional if you want a thinner sauce)
Cornstarch slurry (1 hour before it’s finished)
1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl to make the sauce, leave out the pork chops, chicken broth and cornstarch slurry.
2. Add the sauce to the bottom of your slow cooker.
3. Add the pork chops into your slow cooker and take a pair of tongs and make sure the chops are coated in the sauce. If you wish to have more sauce add a few splashes of chicken broth.
4. Put the lid on the slow cooker and set it on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
5. 1 hour before it’s finished cooking make your cornstarch slurry. Take 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Mix the two until smooth and add the mixture to your slow cooker. Make sure the mixture blends into the sauce.
6. Let it cook for another hour and then serve with rice or vegetables.
FREEZER MEAL: If you wish to turn this into a freezer meal, add all of your ingredients (except for chicken broth and cornstarch slurry) to a gallon size ziplock bag. Remove all air from the bag and make sure the sauce coats the pork chops.
When you are ready to cook. Take your bag out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge overnight.
The next morning add all ingredients to your slow cooker and cook the same times as listed above. Add chicken broth at this time if you wish. 1 hour before it’s finished add your cornstarch slurry.
