Slow Cooker Heaven: Asian Inspiration Pork Chops

Andy Anderson !


I was looking for a pork chop that was more than just pork cooked in a creamy white sauce. So, I played about in the test kitchen, and came up with this.

It’s good bone-in pork chops, in a dreamy sauce, slow cooked for several hours.

What could go wrong?

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
