  • Mix flour, salt and pepper on a plate. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Dredge pork chops in flour on both sides, fry in oil till golden. Place chops in slower cooker.
  • Add more oil to pan if required, then add onions and garlic and fry for 5 minutes (approx) till tender and golden. Do not burn or brown too much.
  • Add ginger, chilli sauce, sugar, mustard powder, vinegar, Worcestershire and soy sauce to onions. Stir and cook for 2-4 minutes or till hot.
  • Pour onions and sauce over chops, place lid on cooker, cook 4 hours on high, or 6 hours on low.
  • NOTE: There has to be enough sauce to cover the chops in the cooker. If it doesn't look like there will be enough sauce, add some chicken broth to the sauce and mix well before adding to pork chops. You can substitute any pork chop for this recipe (loin chops, boneless loin chops, country-style ribs).
