  1. Grind together salt, garlic powder and rosemary; rub onto chop. In a skillet, lightly brown in as little oil as possible; set aside.
  2. Saute carrots, onion, green pepper, leeks, zucchini and garlic. Stir very little until they begin to caramelize or burn slightly. Layer half the vegetable mixture, including the tomatoes, in the bottom of a dutch oven or large saucepan. Arrange the chops on top and then pour the rest of the vegetable mixture on top.
  3. Heat the vegetable stock in the saute pan and stir to loosen bits of food on the bottom. Pour over the vegetable and pork chops.
  4. Add cinnamon stick, allspice, olive oil and basil. Simmer for 20 minutes.

We had this for dinner tonight, and it was fabulous. I browned the chops, sauteed the veggies and then put it all in the crock pot on high for 4 hours and it turned our really nicely. I added w...

This recipe was great! Was making it on a chilly night and thought, at first, that it would be too light and summery. But I used 1 1/2 lbs. of pork tenderloin cutlets in place of chops, and th...

I didn't care for the cinnamon/allspice combination of taste with the pork.

Okay, I changed this a bit, but it turned out to be delicious! The only veggies I used were leeks, celery, carrots and tomatoes. I browned the pork chops first, then removed them and used the s...

I love this dish. It makes me look forward to eating vegetables, which is unusual for me. I had eggplant in the fridge so I cubed it and sauteed it with the other veggies. I didn't have cinnamon...
