Stove Top Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Onions

We don't really have a good name for this recipe because it is for the most part made up. We found a similar recipe which called for spicy sausage and pork, but that was just too much meat for us. We made some adjustments and this is what we got...


For two servings:

2 pork chops
1-2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
500 g pizza tomatoes (diced tomatoes with sauce)
1 bay leaf
2 Tbs parsley (fresh is best)
salt and pepper

Start by heating the olive oil in a large frying pan. Once the oil is hot, add the pork chops and cook on high until they have a nice brown on both sides. They will be cooked again so do not worry about them being cooked all the way through.

Once browned, remove the pork chops from the pan and set aside. Then add the onions and garlic to the pan. Cook until the onions become glassy.

Add the pork chops back into the pan. Add the wine, tomatoes, bay leaf, parsley, and a few dashes of salt and pepper.

Cover and reduce the heat. Cook for 30 minutes letting it simmer.

Serve alone or over rice of noodles. We had ours with noodles and next time we plan on reducing the cooking time a bit so there is more liquid left to use as sauce.


  1. Love this dish - I like to make it with bell peppers too - and serve it over saffron rice. It is also good with beef minutes steaks, and I just call it Cajun style steak or pork or whatever I am using. It is one of those dishes that the next day is even better. Can't beat tomatoes, garlic, onions,,,and bells!

  2. Another garlic and onion love. Yippee!
