I have no idea why this is called San Francisco Chops, I got the recipe from my sister who doesn't remember where she got it or why it has this name either. It is super yummy and an easy slow cooker recipe. I changed it a little bit by decreasing the amount of soy sauce and increasing the chicken broth, I felt it was too salty once it cooked down with the original ratio.
4 - 1” thick bone in pork chops or 6 thinner chops (Cut off fat layer if it is thick)
1-2 Tbsp. oil
2 garlic clove, minced
Brown chops in oil in a skillet, remove to greased slow cooker. Add the garlic to drippings in pan and cook till golden, stirring. Stir in:
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup chicken broth (or 3/4 tsp chicken bullion mixed with 3/4 cup hot water)
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
Cook sauce, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour over chops in slow cooker. Cook on low for 7-8 hours (high 4-5 hours) until tender. Remove chops from slow cooker. Combine 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1 Tbsp. water till smooth. Stir into sauce to thicken. Remove bones from chops and place meat back into the sauce. Cook for 3o minutes more. Serve over rice.
