Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Cyndi 1

"Slow cooking is not a very traditional, but way less messy for these sweet and sour pork chops. It is an easy cold weather meal with some rice and crispy egg rolls, fried noodles, or fried wontons on the side."

  1. Place the onions in the bottom of a 5 quart slow cooker. Layer carrots over the onions, followed by layers of celery, mushrooms, and pineapple. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Place them on top of the vegetables. If you like, you may brown them in a hot skillet first.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the pineapple juice, sherry, cider vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir in the cornstarch until dissolved. Mix in the brown sugar, white pepper, ginger, mustard powder, garlic, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and tomato paste. Pour this over the pork chops and vegetables. The sauce will taste less sharp after a few hours in the slow cooker. Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours, or on High for 3 to 4 hours.

This was pretty tasty, my wife liked it so I'll be trying it again.Hint,don't cook the pork chops whole,cube them.

I am the original poster of the recipe. The sweetness and sourness depends on the kind of pineapple and kind of vinegar used. Please add more sugar or vinegar to taste just before serving. Al...

I used RED and ORANGE bell peppers; and they came out so juicy and sweet that my kids ate them like they were candy! I also BRINED the pork chops with kosher salt, sugar and water overnight bef...

Very good recipe. The pork chops were very tender and the vegatables and pinapple that was cooked with the chops were flavorful and unique. Will use this recipe again.

The pork tasted great, it did not make a great sauce, but you need to cook it in all that for the pork to be so good. I made another thicker sweet & sour sauce from this website to go over it a...

We liked this quite a bit. It would have been a 5 star recipe for us if the sweet and sour flavor would have infused into the pork more. I would imagine that marinating the pork in the sauce o...

Pookie - this is outstanding. I'm very behind on my reviews but try to keep up with some of the current threads and I want you to know I have suggested this already about 5 or 6 times.

I agree with the previous reviewer..cube the pork. Otherwise this is definitely a do again!

This turned out great, and normally I'm not a big pork fan! I cut out the mushrooms and used a few shortcuts like frozen bell pepper strips, ground ginger, and garlic powder.
