    Mom67's Note:

    You will NOT believe how good these pork chops are, after seeing how EASY they are to make. These are so simple, yet worthy of serving to company. I get rave reviews every time I serve them and I'm always asked for the recipe, yet almost embarrased to give it! The trick is to cook slowly with enough heat, but not so much that the chops are boiling to get tough and dry. And the cooking time is very can simmer these for up to 6 hours if you'd like. (By the way, I consider the salt and pepper "freebies" in the ingredient count!)

    3. 3
      Sear chops in pan till lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes per side.
    4. 4
      REMOVE frying pan from burner (so you don't burn yourself on next step).
    5. 5
      Slowly pour can of stewed tomatoes over chops. Distribute tomatoes so some are under chops and the balance is evenly covering the tops of the pork chops.

      Could not believe how moist and tasty 2 really thick boneless chops were, after 2 1/2 hours of MORE than a simmer on my glass-top stove ! Had no stewed tomatoes, so used 1 can of petite diced tomatoes and added some dried basil and oregano, and slivered some fresh garlic. VERY tender and tasty. Thanks for posting, Mom67

      Like everybody else, loved it! I had to use diced tomatoes with jalapenos. I also only did 2 pork chops. I cooked mine for 2 hours and they were fall apart tender. After 1 1/2 hours, I had to add some beef broth because almost all the liquid had evaporated. Will make this again! Made for Fall PAC 2012.
