Tips for Pork and Pork Chop

Instructions

  1. 1In a blender, blend together the broth, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, and pepper. Put the chops into
the slow cooker, pour over the lemongrass mixture, cover, and cook on the low-heat setting for 6 hours. The chops should be very tender.
  2. 2Transfer the pork chops to a warm plate. Using a large metal spoon, skim off and discard any fat from the surface of the cooking liquid. Strain the liquid through a fine-mesh sieve into a saucepan. Place it over medium heat and simmer until slightly thickened.
  3. 3Serve the pork chops with the sauce, garnished with the green onions.
