This recipe was handed down to my sister by her mother-in-law and then to me. I make this all the time and since it has to simmer for up to 4 hours, I make plenty and freeze it.
Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, water and wine into a large saucepan and simmer on low heat, covered.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add pork chops (seasoned with salt & pepper to taste) until slightly browned and add to the sauce and continue to simmer for 3 hours, checking and stirring periodically so it doesn't stick. I've also prepared this sauce in the crock pot and have let it simmer for about 6 hours on low heat.
Slice the green peppers into strips (season to taste with salt and pepper) and add to the hot skillet with 2 tablesppons of olive oil and brown. Set aside. Do the same with the onions.
Once the sauce is done simmering for 3 hours on the stove, or 6 in the crockpot, add your peppers and onions and simmer for another hour. If using the crock pot, double the time.
