I started off with another recipe on this site but wound up changing so much that I think it needs it's own mention. The bean paste makes it a little bit spicy. Sauce was great over rice.

I followed the recipe to the book and it's delicious! But a little too salty so instead I used 2/3C chicken broth and 1/3C soy sauce (I use premium soy sauce which is saltier) to balance out. Another time I tried 3/4C chicken broth and 1/4C soy sauce - makes the recipe a little bland but if you're watching your sodium intake this might be a good option. I have made this 5X already and e-mailed it to all my crock pot friends. Way to go! Read More

These were way too salty and according to my Korean boyfriend not Korean. He said that to make the recipe more authentic (and less salty) sugar should be added to the broth. Read More

Good slow cooker recipe. I used low sodium soy sauce and chicken broth but tripled the quantities of both because our slow cooker is 5 quart oval and I didn't want the liquid to burn on the sides of the pot. Also added in an extra tbls. of paste and doubled the garlic. We made 8 medium thickness pork chops. They were very tender and flavorful. We served them with simple steamed mixed vegetables on the side. Read More

I used extra bean paste because I love spicy food and I used 2/3 chicken broth and 1/3 soy sauce as recommended by another user. Read More

5 star w/ suggestions from others. Here's how to take a 4 star & make it 5 star: (1) use 1/2 c. low sodium chicken broth; (2) sub Ponzu (seasoned soy sauce) for soy sauce. Ponzu had 400mg sodium / svg lite tarmari has 700 mg sodium and regular soy sauce has 900 mg sodium. That's it. Has a GREAT flavor pork chops shredded apart and are neighbors at the condo wanted to know what smelled so good. We served over Jasmine rice with stir fried mixed veggies. The "zucchini and onion stir fry" recipe from this site is really good with this too. Thanks for sharing. We had to find the Korean chile paste at a local Asian market since Whole Foods Earthfare and local Ingles didn't have it but it was worth the hunt to get it! Read More

This was ok. The flavor was pretty good but it was salty. I think the sauce would have been better as a stir fry sauce instead of a slow cooker recipe. I just thought the soy overpowered the meat. Read More
