Description

A simple crock pot meal with fall off the bone pork chops and rich pasta sauce. The tomato sauce simmers all day and picks up the all the delicious flavors of the pork.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Small Pork Chops, Bone In (or 2 Large Chops)
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce (14.5oz)
  • 1 can Petite Diced Tomatoes (14.5oz)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Crushed
  • ½ whole Onion, Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine
  • 1 box Pasta, 16 Ounce Box
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops, set aside.

Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, and oregano to your crock pot or slow cooker.

In a pan heat up a little oil over medium high heat, sear each pork chop until brown on each side (30 seconds to a minute).

After each pork chop has been seared place it in the slow cooker, submerging it as much as possible in the tomato mixture.

Over medium-high heat add the red wine to the pan you seared the pork chops in to deglaze the pan. Scrape up any brown bits that are stuck to the pan. As soon as the pan is deglazed (about 30 seconds) dump the red wine liquid into the crock pot.

Cover crock pot and set on low for 8 hours (if some of your pork chops aren’t submerged in the tomato sauce you might want to rotate them every 2 hours.)

After 8 hours, boil some water and prepare pasta according to packaging instructions. Then drain.

You may want to salt and pepper the tomato sauce at this point but I find the pork flavors it enough that it’s not necessary.

Place pork chops on top of pasta (it should be so tender it falls off the bone) and spoon tomato sauce over the whole thing.

Devour pasta and sop up any of the wonderful tomato sauce with a piece of bread.

This sounds great! But we need your help. Would you go into the ingredients list and for all of the packaged items (boxes, containers, bags, jars and/or cans) please add in the specific size (in ounces) of the package? We’ve got a lot of members overseas, in places where packaging varies, so please make sure to always include package sizes on your future recipe submittals. We appreciate your help.

When done, click ‘make recipe visible’ and ‘save’ and we’ll get this posted.
Thanks,
