San Francisco Chops

2 Tablespoons olive oil

6 pork chops, trimmed of fat

salt and pepper for seasoning

3 stalks celery, diced

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 Tablespoons light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup water

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat until it is hot.  Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.  Brown the chops for 1 – 2 minutes on each side in the oil until golden.  Place the pork chops in the crock pot.  Add the celery to the drippings in the skillet and stir constantly for 1 – 2 minutes.  Stir in the soy sauce, broth, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder.  Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Pour over the pork chops and cover with the lid. 

Cook on high 4 hours or low 7 – 8 hours.  Take your pork chops out and set on  a plate (the chops may fall apart).  Remove the bones.  Stir the corn starch into the water and add to the broth left in the crock pot.  Stir the sauce and then add the pork chops back in the crock pot.  Let this cook another 30 minutes or so while you cook your rice.  Serve the pork chops over the rice.
