Simmered Pork Chops In Spicy Tomato Sauce

Today I made pork chops simmered in a spicy tomato sauce. I have been making this recipe for my loved ones for years. I make these pork chops at least once a week. This recipe has become a favorite for all of those who have tasted them. You can pair this juicy chops with some Rice and Beans (moro), which by the way with the delicious sauce in this pork chops is heavenly tasty. I added some jalapenos to the sauce this is optional if spicy foods are not your thing.  To season the pork chops I’m using this Sofrito Recipe. This sofrito is made with a combination of fresh herbs and spices that infuse any meal with lots of Authentic Caribbean flavor. If you are in a rush and can’t make the sofrito just combine 2 garlic cloves, salt, and black pepper to season the chops. I highly recommend using the sofrito which is one seasoning you can keep using for weeks.

Ingredients  you’ll need

onions,-peppers,-cilantro

 

  •  4 to 6 pork chops cut in small pieces ( 1 and ½ pounds)
  • My Sofrito
  • Salt

  • Water (as needed)
  • Oil ( I like to use canola oil)
  •  Fresh peppers
  • Onions,
  • Cilantro
  •  Jalapeno peppers for some spicy kick!

Notes

* I'm using very thin pork chops, but if you are using thick cuts I suggest adding 1/2 cup of water, lower temperature to medium-low and cover and cook for 15 minutes or until chops are tender. Make sure to check and add more water if needed. (skip this if you are using thin cuts like me)
