What's for Dinner? - Slow Cooker Asian Pork Chops With Rice

Pork: The Incredibly Versatile Meat! For this recipe, I used the same sauce (or same idea anyway) that I used for the tilapia stir fry in pastry cups and poured it over these incredibly tender boneless pork chops. I came home at 1:00pm, had these in the crock pot by 1:30 and by 7:30pm they were so tender that you couldn't use a fork to flip or move them without them falling apart. PERFECT. I scissored up some green onion to sprinkle on top, placed the pork chop over some rice and it was full of robust flavor and will freeze wonderfully for a night you don't feel like cooking!  I'm not sure this could get any easier. Here goes:


6 boneless pork chops
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. ground ginger

1.  Place the pork chops in the crock pot.
2.  Combine all of the other ingredients and pour over the pork chops.
 3.  Set crock pot to low heat for 6-7 hours.
4.  Serve on a bed of rice and garnish with green onion.


  1. Trying this tomorrow. Ingredients already prepped. Thanks!

  2. I tried it a couple of weeks ago but I added frozen broccoli that last hour of cooking it and it was a big hit with my family that they want it again tonight!!! The only thing I do is if it gets to thin from all the juices from the pork I make a little rue and add it to the cricket pot to thicken it up than pour it over rice...yummy!!!!!!
