The pork was tender and delicious. This was an excellent recipe that we shall be making a regular part of our repertoire. Hubby isn't in to spicy, so I left out the red pepper.

Excellent! I used fresh oregano, 28 oz can tomatoes (we prefer more sauce) bone-in center cut pork chops, browned/sauteed according to the recipe and added everything to my slow cooker on high for 3+ hours. I didn't make the dumplings and served with some crusty bread to dip in the sauce instead. Very tender pork and flavorful sauce...the DH is not a huge fan of pork chops or bell peppers but enjoyed this as well....quick to prepare especially if using the slow cooker...Will be making this again...especially looking forward to trying it with the dumplings in the fall. Thanks for posting!
