This recipe is for 4 thick-cut pork chops you can double the amounts if desired. This is a very good pork chop recipe that I developed recently! A large electric frypan works perfectly for this! Use a thicker-cut of pork chops for this 1/2 to 3/4-inch thickness. Serve the chops and sauce on top of cooked pasta with a side order of Kittencal's Parmesan Garlic Bread or Garlic Toast or Savory Parmesan Garlic Bread --- if you like lots of sauce then increase the tomato sauce by 1 cup or a little more.

Directions

  1. In a small shallow bowl mix together the breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt and black pepper.
  2. In another bowl slightly beat the egg.
  3. Dip the pork chop/s firstly in the egg then coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Brown the chops on both sides then remove to a plate.
  6. Add in more oil if needed to the skillet and add in onions, garlic, green bell pepper, oregano, basil and dryed chili flakes (if using) saute for about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Add in the tomatoes with juice and tomato sauce; mix with a spoon and bring to a boil and simmer over medium-low heat for about 30-40 minutes (you can cook this for up to 1-1/2 hours if desired before adding in the chops, it only gets richer and thicker the longer the sauce is cooked for!).
  8. Add in the browned pork chops and cook uncovered over medium-low heat for about another 25 minutes, or until the chops are cooked to desired tenderness.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve on cooked spaghetti and top with Parmesan cheese.
