Slow Cooker: Peking Pork Chops

I'm always trying out and looking for new slow cooker recipes.  I had just picked up some pork chops, so these caught my eye.  Now I know that my crock pot is tempermental and cooks things really fast.  So I adapt cooking times accordingly.  However, even shortening the cook time on these they still came out too dry.  They didn't get tender as they cooked longer....just drier. :(  The sauce was really tasty though and I spooned some on the rice that I served with these.

Peking Pork Chops
recipe slightly adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking

6 pork chops
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon 5 Spice Powder
1/2 cup free soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion sliced

Put pork chops in bottom of slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine sugar, 5 spice powder, soy sauce, ketchup, and garlic. Pour evenly over the top of chops. Lay onion rings on top of pork chops.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for about 4. If your chops are frozen they will take longer to cook.
