Pork Cacciatore

Recipe from: Sneakyteaky
Servings: 4

A wonderful Italian neighbor showed me how to make this recipe after I commented on how good it made the neighborhood smell when she had her windows open when she made it. This American-Italian term refers to food prepared 'hunter-style,' with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, various herbs, and sometimes wine. I found adding cheese gave it something special, it also made it mine.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, sliced
4 boneless pork chops
28 ounce jar pasta sauce
28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
8 ounce package fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ cup dry white wine
4 slices mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet, brown chops over medium-high heat. Transfer to slow cooker. In the same pan, cook onion in oil over medium heat until browned. Stir in mushrooms and bell pepper, and cook until these vegetables are soft. Mix in pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, and white wine. Season with Italian seasoning, basil, and garlic. Pour over pork chops in slow cooker.

Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours. To serve, place a slice of cheese over each chop, and cover with sauce.
