"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." — tsaileus

Korean chile bean paste
salt and pepper to taste
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
This recipe started off with a great flavor, and by the end of the chop, It was so salty, we couldn't eat it anymore. I used both low sodium broth and soy sauce, so I'm not sure what happened...
Like the other postings, this was just too salty. I used low sodium soy sauce and even added sugar. Not a recipe I will try again.
Yum! I am always looking for korean flavered dishes to serve to my korean husband..This was easy and delish! I followed the recipe to a tee except that i added a splash of sesame oil. My husband even asked to take the left ivers for lunch the next day =)
