Food Friday: Peking Pork Chops

I'm not a huge pork fan but this is my absolute favorite way to eat it. You could easily substitute chicken if you do not eat pork. This recipe originally came from the Weight Watchers recipe search many years ago so it is healthy too. Another bonus is it is a crockpot meal so you can fix it early of a morning and have a wonderful dinner when you get home. If you are going to be gone all day, use frozen pork chops so they aren't mush by dinner time. Also, this easily can be cut in half if you have a smaller family.

Peking Pork Chops

6 pork chops
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 cloves garlic, mashed

Trim excess fat from pork chops. Place chops in crockpot. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over pork chops. Cook, covered, on low for 4-6 hours or until tender (can go 8+ hours if start with frozen or have a timer on the crockpot).

5 points per serving if using 4 oz chops, 7 points if using 6 oz chops
