This is very similar to my recipe for Veal Osso Buco, but is a very tender pork chop dish with a flavorful tomato and herb sauce. It takes a while to prepare, but does not require much attention while cooking.

I made this and loved it! the only things I did differently was, I deglazed the pan with a little chardonnay and baked the pork in a dutch oven @ 300 for 2 hours.

Osso Bucco is traditionally made with shin, and this is what I used. Consequently, cooking time was longer - about 2 hours in a 155C oven. End result was delicious!

This was a fantastic addition to my normal rotation, but next time I would eliminate the salt from the flour mixture. I deglazed the pan with 1/4 cup of dry white wine and I baked, lid on in a 325 degree oven for two hours and served it over risotto.
