Pork chops in tomato sauce

Pork chops in tomato sauce is a yummy dish.
You can enjoy with spaghetti or a demi baguette
(for sopping up sauce).

This is my favorite way to make pork chops. If you make two, you have leftovers for lunch or dinner (that's how the kitchen wench rolls).

You will need:
2 meaty pork chops (bone in)
a pinch of sugar
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
small can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Italian dry seasoning
3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp olive oil

I like to brown the pork chops in a hot pan. First dust them with a pinch of sugar (this helps with browning) and then after they are brown on both sides I add the tomatoes, tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. In a separate pan I toast 3 cloves of diced garlic in olive oil until it is a bit browned (more flavor) and then it goes into the pan with your pork chops. Cook them covered on low for one hour.

This makes a great pork chop and also an amazing spaghetti sauce. Or you could eat a chop with extra sauce and sop it up with a demi baguette from La Brea bakery (At AJ's or Costco) - I am crazy about them and they also make amazing french toast.

Happy cooking.
