Basil Tomato Pork Chops
In all the years I’ve been cooking I never really thought about combining pork and tomato sauce together. Chicken, beef …of course ,but pork? I hope you’re just as delighted as I am when you try this delicious combination. Let’s start the recipe.
We start the recipe by melting two Tablespoons of butter in a 12-inch skillet until sizzling; stir in the garlic. Add 4 pork chops. Cook the pork chops over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until they are browned on both sides. Remove the pork chops from the pan and set them aside. Add the remaining 4 pork chops to the pan and cook them the same way you cooked the first four chops.
Place the cooked pork chops back into the pan. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan with a lid and cook, stirring occasionally, 50-60 minutes or until pork chops are no longer pink. Remove the pork chops from the pan and keep them warm.
Stir the water and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the hot cooking liquid with a wire whisk; add the green pepper and onion to the pan. Increase the burner heat to medium. Cook the sauce and vegetables, stirring occasionally, 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and the vegetables are crisply tender. Serve the sauce over the pork chops.
