Two major events that will go down in history happened in the last two days. One, Osama bin Laden was killed by US Navy Seals. And two, I made a dinner that every member of my family enjoyed.
I do realize that one is significantly more important than the other (but I won’t say which one).
Whenever the leader of a major terrorist organization is captured and killed by Navy Seals, you should make teriyaki pork chops in your slow cooker. That’s just good sense.
Crock Pot Teriyaki Pork Chops
- 4-5 boneless pork loin chops
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tsp water
- Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and brown both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side). Put chops in slow cooker.
- Combine remaining ingredients (except cornstarch and water) in a small bowl. Pour over chops. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
- Remove chops from pot and keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add to sauce in the slow cooker and cook on high for 30 minutes to thicken the sauce. Serve over rice.
Do you believe every single Critic loved these chops?
Don Vito Corleone: It’s delicious!
Sarah Crewe picked up her chop with her hands and ate it like a barbarian. She was afraid if she cut it on her plate, some of it might touch her applesauce. But, she said: I like it!
Batman: This is really good!
Curious George: I like it!
Elmo: Yes. Chicken.
The Navy Seals rock! They know how to whack a bad guy when they find one. Here are some movies where the villain also gets his/her comeuppance:
The Wizard of Oz:
Raiders of the Lost Ark:
Saturday Night Live It’s a Wonderful Life Lost Ending:
Charles Bronson, in any movie:
This is so not my area of expertise, so VC had to help me!
And now I leave you with this last thought:
“The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.” -George W. Bush
