Slow Cooker Creamy Pork Chops

I am the type of person that doesn't usually win anything.  However I do seem to have good luck at the meat raffles.  

I have a chest freezer in the garage that I have been saying for 2 months that I need to empty (use everything) and defrost it.  Hmm well that hasn't happened!  I keep winning these meat raffles and filling it up.  

With meat as expensive as it is these days ... I'm not complaining!  However it leaves me with some puzzles, we do not eat chops and some of the meat packs have contained pork chops, finding ways to cook foods we don't eat has been a challenge.  This recipe I have adapted from others on the internet.

4 pork loin chops with bone
1 leak, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
100 ml cream
2 tablespoons corn flour

In a heavy based frypan fry your chops, approx 3 mins each side, until brown.  Place in your slow cooker.  In the same pan fry your sliced leak and garlic clove, add water, simmer for 5 mins,  Pour this over the pork in the slow cooker.

In the same frypan combine the stock, Worcestershire sauce and sugar, heat until boiling.

Pour over your pork and turn slow cooker on low.  Cook for 8 hours.

Gently lift the chops out of the slow cooker, you may need to use a spatula or they will fall apart.  Set aside to stay warm.

Ladle the sauce into a saucepan and blitz with a stick blender to smooth.  Allow the sauce to simmer over a medium heat for 5 minutes.  Mix together the corn flour and an equal amount of water to a smooth paste,  add some of the sauce to slacken the cornflour and this prevents from going lumpy. Allow to simmer and thicken for 5 minutes.  Add cream and stir through.  Allow to simmer for another 5 minutes and serve.
