Crock-Pot Italian Pork Chops

  • 4 to 6 lean pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup dry sherry or water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • 2 medium green peppers, cut into rings
  • Egg noodles, for serving

Trim excess fat off pork chops. In a medium skillet, heat oil and brown chops on both sides. Drain pork chops on paper towels. Put mushrooms, onions, and garlic in the bottom of a Crock-Pot. Arrange pork chops on top of vegetables. In a bowl, combine tomato sauce, sherry (or water), lemon juice, salt, and spices. Pour over chops. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. Thirty minutes before serving, add green pepper on top of chops. Serve over egg noodles.
