Slow Cooker San Francisco Pork Chops

A few weeks ago, I made pork chops in my slow cooker. They came out incredibly moist and tender, literally falling apart. They were a huge hit, so I was determined to find a few more slow cooker versions. I came across this version from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, and after tweaking it just a bit, it was another success!! Full of flavor and tender, I highly recommend it! 


2 tbsp olive oil
4 pork chops (I use boneless, but bone-in works as well)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp onion flakes (you may also use onion powder)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water
Mashed Potatoes, or rice if desired


In a skillet, heat the olive oil. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on each side. Place pork chops in the heated oil and allow to brown 2 minutes on each side. Move the pork chops to the slow cooker. Add garlic into the skillet and simmer for about a minute. Stir in the soy sauce, chicken broth, brown sugar, onion, and red pepper flakes. Once combined, pour mixture over pork chops in the slow cooker. Cover the slow cooker with lid and cook on low about 7-8 hours. Or cook on high about 3-4 hours. Remove the pork chops from the slow cooker once cooked and whisk in the cornstarch to the sauce. Return the pork chops to the slow cooker and allow to cook an additional 30 minutes. This will thicken up the sauce. Serve the pork chops over mashed potatoes, or rice if desired. Pour the sauce on top and serve!
