Rancher’s Pork Chops

Pork chops simmered in a zesty sauce. This is a crockpot recipe from my dad that we used to have a lot when I was a kid.

6 pork chops

1 onion chopped
2 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp Mustard (I used dijon, but regular mustard works too)

Put onions on bottom of the crock pot. Add chops. Top with mixture of brown sugar, ketchup and mustard. Cook for four hours on high or 6 hours on low. Remove the chops. Put the juices into a saucepan add 1 tbsp of the cornstarch and ¼ cup of water and bring to a boil, then simmer for approximately a minute
Serve Pork chops and juices with Rice.
If you have more time, you can mix corn starch and water to the pork chops and juice in the crock pot and cook for another 20 minutes instead of using a saucepan

I’m just realizing as I type this out that I completely forgot to add the cornstarch at the end. It was still really good even with a thinner sauce.  I usually don’t like pork chops, but I like this recipe because they’re super tender from being slow-cooked. The boys both ate this and especially liked the sauce. I only cooked 3 chops, so I had extra sauce which was perfect for pouring over the rice and veggies. If I were cooking 6 chops I would probably double the sauce ingredients.
