Recipe by Mom67
READY IN: 3hrs 5mins


  • 4 -6
    boneless center cut loin pork chops (1/2-3/4-inch thick)
  • 1
    (14 1/2 ounce) can del monte stewed tomatoes, Italian Recipe (with basil, garlic and oregano)
  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in large frying pan that has a lid.
  • Season pork chops with salt and pepper.
  • Sear chops in pan till lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • REMOVE frying pan from burner (so you don't burn yourself on next step).
  • Slowly pour can of stewed tomatoes over chops. Distribute tomatoes so some are under chops and the balance is evenly covering the tops of the pork chops.
  • Cover pan and return to burner. Reduce heat to low and simmer (do not boil) for 2-3 hours, or until chops are fork tender. You can leave the chops on low for even longer, if you prefer - adjust to your schedule.
  • Uncover and let simmer for another hour (or longer) until some of the water in the pan evaporates.
  • Serve with side of mashed potatoes (the pan juice goes well with them!) or over pasta of your choice with some parmesan cheese.
