Spaghetti Sauce with Pork Chops and Green Peppers

Ready in 4 hours

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.


2 28-oz cans Hunts crushed tomatoes
1 12-oz can tomato paste
1/2 can red wine
1 cans of water
10 pork chops; thinly sliced
4 large green peppers
1 large yellow onion
6 tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 20



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.

The recipe itself was very confusing as it said "1 2 28oz cans" of this, "1 cans of water", "1 1 12oz cans" of that 12 cans and 11 cans, 2 cans?
