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.

Directions

  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.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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. Also, really lean pork cooks very quickly, so check at half time if you've scaled down the recipe. Thanks.

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 before slow-cooking them. My family and guests said that these were the BEST PORK CHOPS they ever had!!! Fantastic recipe, Poookie.
