Thank you so much for the idea. I used a 5lb boneless pork loin roast, seasoned heavily with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, garlic powder. Sautéed 2 chopped small onions & lots of fresh garlic in a bit of olive oil. Moved onion garlic to side and then browned my loin on all sides just to seal, placed in crock pot and poured onion and garlic over roast. Turned to the lowest setting (10 hrs) cooked for 1 hr, then poured 2 jars of sauce and 2 cans of Italian style stewed tomatoes, 1 cup of "red" cabernet sauvignon, and tons of spices (crushed red pepper, basil, oregano, sea salt, peper,etc..) WE LIKE SPICE! Let cook another hour, then I sautéed in a bit of olive oil, 2 sliced green/red peppers for just a few minutes, then added lots of sliced mushrooms (about 16 oz) until a "golden" brown (NOT TOO LONG!) and added to the crock pot. Gave it a mix and let cook for another maybe 3 hours. Came home, checked the temp of pork and it was done! Took roast out and let rest. I cut thin slices of roast(divine just like that) placed back in sauce while noodles cooked. Served over angel hair pasta with freshly ground Parmesan/Romano, salad and some crusty Italian bread. OMG this was DELISH! My family of 4 from 9-55 yrs LOVED this dish :) Will definitely make again! If no time, place everything in crock right from the start! 5 hrs for 5/6 lb ROAST perfect but less time would have worked as well. 7-8 hrs for 4 chops WAY TOOOOO LONG that's why I gave 4 stars. The chops would be so dry!
