Pork Loin Chops Cacciatore Style

I found this on a supermarket leaflet. The original recipe used lamb chops-I changed that to pork. The sauce is enough for 4 servings according to the original recipe, but we love lots of sauce over pasta.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a frying pan and cook the onions over a low to medium heat for 5 minutes or until translucent; add the garlic and cook a further 2 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, herbs, stock, wine, and olives, bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the paprika over the chops and season them. Heat the remaining oil in another frying pan and sear the chops for 3-4 minutes each side until golden.
  4. Add the chops to the tomato sauce pan and continue to cook a further 10 minutes over a low heat.
  5. Scatter with torn basil leaves to serve.

This was a easy dish to make and it was easily 5 stars. We doubled the cooking time because the meat was pretty thick. the sauce was delightful, however I will make it a little thicker next time. I consider this recipe a real find and thanks to the chef for the recipe. BRAVO

Super! I love that it's so fast to put together, and it is tasty too! I doubled the sauce recipe (except the spices as I tend to like less herbs), used frozen chopped onion b/c I was in a hurry, added the paprika to the sauce because I didn't read ahead. All was well! I agree with others that the chops can be made first, then set aside to reduce the # of pans to wash. Thanks!

This is a great recipe, I have made this several times, I double the recipe. I also use the same pan to cook my pork chops in and then just set them aside to finish the dish, I used thicker chops so I also allow more time to cook in the sauce under a low flame. I serve this over some angel hair pasta. Very Very Tasty, Thanks for sharing!
