Crock Pot Hawaiian Pork

Crock Pot Hawaiian Pork

2-3 lbs pork chops
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. apple juice
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 tbsp. cornstarch

1. Sear your chops.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and sear those babies in a hot skillet.  It always adds great flavor if you will sear your meat first.
2. While your chops are getting a tan, turn your crock pot on high and add everything but cornstarch.  Mix it up well.  Once your pork is brown on both sides add it to the crock pot.
3. Cook on high for 2-3 hours.  Remember that you already started the cooking process in the skillet so they aren't going to need as much time in the crock pot.
4. Once your pork is done take it out of the crock and pour all the juices into a saucepan.  Mix your cornstarch with about 1/3 cup of water.  Add that to the juices and turn up the heat.  Let the mixture come to a low boil and let simmer until it has thickened.  Put the meat and sauce back in the crock pot together to keep warm until you are ready to serve.  

I served this over white rice.  Brown would be better but hubby doesn't like it.  I've gotten him switched to wheat bread but he still doesn't like brown rice.  Baby steps. ;)

Happy Cooking!!
