San Francsico Pork Chops

I got this recipe from the mail. It is a favorite of ours. I usually have to make my kids stop eating this - they would probably eat until they were sick if I let them:)

4 pork chops (I use the medium cut ones)
1 tablespoon oil
1 clove garlic, minced

2 teaspoons oil
4 tablespoons dry sherry or broth (I use cooking sherry)
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (more or less as you like)
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water

Heat oil in skillet. Brown both sides of chops. Remove the chops and add more oil if needed. Saute garlic for a minute, careful not to burn it. In a separate bowl, combine oil, sherry or broth, soy sauce, brown sugar and red pepper. Place chops back into skillet and pour mixture over the chops. Cover and let them simmer on low heat until chops are tender and cooked through. About 30 minutes. (I have noticed that it does not always take the 30 minutes - just make sure that they are done.) Add water if sauce starts to cook down to much. Remove chops from the pan. Mix the cornstarch and water then add it to the pan. Stir until thickened. Pour sauce over chops - but we do not - instead we cook up some pasta and then pour all of the sauce over the pasta and serve it like that instead.
