It can't get any easier than this. This is one of our all time favorite pork dishes, I've been making this for years.

This was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! My hubby is an avid pork hater and had 3 helpings of this one!!! I did not get fork tender chops with these instructions but the flavor offset a bit of the toughness. I used 1 can of tomato sauce and 1 can of diced tomatoes, omitted the water and used 1/2 cup of red wine. PERFECT!! I simmered just shy of 2 hours and the smell and taste were indescribable. I think this deserves more than 5 stars. Thank you!
