Tangy Pork Chops

It's hard to get a good picture of this dish, since it usually looks like a pile of glop when you dish it out.  We put it over rice, but so far my attempts to get a good picture of it over rice have been a big "Fail!"  

So here it is, cooking in the crock pot.  Not a bad picture.  When you make this, you will spend the day drooling at the smell coming from the crock pot, and counting the hours until you can make it. 

This recipe has an odd assortment of ingredients, but I promise, they are correct.

Tangy Pork Chops
4 pork chops (at least 1/2" thick)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 can (14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 beef bouillon cube (we've used a chicken bouillon cube before)
2 medium onions, chopped
1 large green pepper, sliced
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
white rice 

Place pork chops in a crock pot; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Add the onions, celery, green pepper and tomatoes.  

Combine ketchup, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and bullion, and pour over veggies.  Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours.  

Forty minutes before serving, mix cornstarch and water in a bowl until smooth, stir into crock pot.  Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes.  Serve over rice.

Sounds good!

This sounds awesome. I think I have all the ingredients for it too, except the green pepper - but I have two red peppers. Hmm. AND I'm going to be out all afternoon. Think I'll try it (but my pork chops are frozen...)

Nicole said...

Okay - pork chops are frozen solid in one big block. We'll try it tomorrow - by which time I'll have had a chance to get a green pepper. I'm going to probably double or triple the recipe, hopefully it will still work, but I'm feeding five, three of whom are grown men.

Do you dissolve the bouillon cube in water or just add the whole cube?

I don't know if the anonymous commenter will come back, but no, I didn't dissolve the cube, I just tossed it in.
