1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1-3 tablespoon red chile paste (I used Gourmet Garden)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3-5 pounds boneless pork chops (thick cut 1″- 1 1/2″)
1/4 cup cornstarch
Add 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 4 hours.
After 4 hours, combine equal amounts cornstarch and water in a mason jar or small ball, close the lid, to seal the jar. Shake the living tar out of it, to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the crockpot. Stir and cover, cook 1 more hour.
Check for doneness. If the pork chops need longer let them cook until tender and done.
Serve and enjoy!
