Ginger Soy Pork Chops A La Crock Pot

Don't let the ugly picture scare you away. This recipe is delish. And if the word crock pot scares you or seems a bit WT for your taste, you must have a lot more free time than I do. Please share your secret to mastering the universe in the comments section below.

Ginger Soy Pork Chops A La Crock Pot
* Serves 2, can double recipe for 4 servings.

2 thick bone-in pork chops
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 smashed garlic cloves
1 inch chopped fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon orange zest, optional
chopped green onions, for garnish

First you need to whisk all the soaking ingredients together either in a large bowl or even in a ziploc until all blended together. Gently pour into your crock pot then add the chops turning them over in the liquid to be sure every bit has been blessed. Turn the crock on low heat and cook for 6-7 hours, turning the chops occasionally to be sure every side is getting equal liquid love (I had to stack the chops on top of one another because my pot is from the 70's - you won't have this problem if yours is newer/wider.)

Check for doneness with a knife before serving and DON'T let them cook for too long past this stage or they'll get tough (if mine are cooked I'll turn the pot off for an hour or so if we're not ready to eat then turn it back on 20 minutes before serving so they warm through again.)

Serve over rice with extra juice from the pot and green onions for garnish.
