CROCK-POT PORK CHOPS WITH CABBAGE





CROCK-POT PORK CHOPS WITH CABBAGE

Delicious meal with lovely rich flavors that will satisfy the whole family.  The Breading and the Tomato Sauce will be useful recipes for other purposes as well. The red pepper flakes makes this a spicy dish, so if you are not into spice/heat, then reduce the amount of red pepper flakes or leave it out.  My husband thought it was just the right amount of spice for him, but for me, it was too spicy, but then again I am a spice chicken!  

8 boneless pork chops (3 lbs 6 oz; 1.5 kg)
1/4 cup light-tasting olive oil (60 mL)
1 green pepper sliced
1/2 cup chopped green onions (125 mL)
  PLUS some for garnish
1/2 head cabbage, chopped (10 oz; 283 g)
Breading:
1/2 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (125 mL)
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese (60 mL)

Rinse pork chops, removing any bone chips and pat dry with paper towels.

Breading:  In small bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and black pepper. Spoon breading over both sides of pork chops.

In nonstick frying pans, over medium high heat, and in 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil per pan, fry pork chops on both sides until nicely browned.  Place in crock-pot.

Tomato sauce: In medium bowl, combine tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, liquid sweetener, parsley, black pepper, thyme, red pepper flakes and salt.  Stir in any remaining breading, green pepper and green onions and pour over the pork chops. Cook on high 5 hours, or until the chops are tender enough to your liking. In the last hour add the cabbage.
