WOW! We LOVED this! I used a slow cooker to make this and the pork literally fell apart! We had 8 center cut pork chops that I pan seared on both sides in butter and garlic from the jar. Then I placed them in the bottom of a crock pot. I then sprinkled them with salt, pepper and basil. I then poured the 2 (14 oz) cans of Italian style diced tomatoes over top and then placed 1 onion sliced into rings on top of that. I put the slow cooker on low and we had dinner about 5 hours later. I totally skipped that water, cornstarch thing. We omitted green bell pepper as we were out. We served with white rice, green beans and freshly baked french bread. When I make again I will serve with pasta and a salad. This was better than I had imagined. If serving for company I probably would bake so that the chops don't fall apart. DELICIOUS!!!! Thanks for the post :-)


I made this for dinner and wasn't sure about it at first but it was great, even the fuzzy I don't like pork chops person loved them. I didn't have that size of canned tomatoes so I used a small can and a can of tomato sauce and it was great. Next time I will just use the tomato sauce with equal part water for the sauce. Have to make this now once every 2 weeks to keep them happy.
