  1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in mushrooms; cook and stir until mushrooms are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops, browning on both sides, 7 to 10 minutes. Place the pork chops on a plate, then drain all but 1 tablespoon of drippings from the skillet. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in the tomatoes, then season with basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Transfer the pork chops back to the skillet; cover and simmer until the pork chops are tender and no longer pink in the center, about 45 minutes. Stir in some water if the mixture becomes too dry. Place the bell pepper on top of the pork, then add the reserved mushrooms. Continue to simmer until the bell pepper is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Cook's Note
  • Don't add the green pepper wedges until your chops are done, otherwise, they will turn to mush.

The secret to moist pork chops is to use bone in chops. The boneless chops dry out during the simmering process.

Followed the recipe as written. These were good, but not great. I would highly suggest seasoning the pork chops with salt and pepper as you're browning them, because although the sauce is flavorful enough, the chops themselves were on the bland side. Also, my chops turned out dry and I don't know if this was due to the long simmering time or what. On the plus side, this recipe is easy and presents nicely.

These pork chops were tender and juicy and had a lot of flavor. We loved them! I followed the recipe except for the mushrooms (didn't have any) and I left out the salt (personal preference). This is a terrific quick and easy weeknight dinner that everyone will love.

Delicious! I scaled this to 2 servings, but made half of the sauce. I used a mix a colored peppers and sautéed them separately, topping the chops with them when plating. The flavor of this is excellent, perfectly seasoned. The only thing I would change next time is to cut back on the simmering time because my chops dried out a bit, even though I used a very low simmer. But that is an easy fix and I will definitely be making this again!

I absolutely loved these pork chops! The only thing I did was added a little bit more seasoning since my family likes their food spicy but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and it was a sure hit! It's been added to my recipe box for future use. The chops are juicy and tender...try it!

I put this in my Recipe Box because of it seemed to be a very healthy recipe...according to the nutritional information...although I wonder if it was calculated correctly?? Anyway..it was quite simple to make and it was VERY tasty! I used a 540 ml can of Alymers Cracked Black Peppercord and Roasted Garlic stewed tomatoes and the flavour was AMAZING! I used a red pepper but otherwise I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. The sauce was so good it might be good as a pasta sauce on it's own and I will defiantly try this with chicken. * I did try this with chicken..not as good..something about the pork chops I guess!

These pork chops are very good. I use diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of the regular tomatoes and added black greek olives.

Very good, easy to make and presents nicely. I did use bone in chops so they didn't dry out and added red wine in place of the water for a tad more flavor. Wine for the sauce and wine for the cook. Doesn't get much better than that! Served over polenta and with a simple side salad. Thank you lutzflcat for the recipe. Will go into my favorites file!
