I have been working on this one for a while now and I think I have it perfected. I would put this recipe up against just about any pork dish out there.
If you use the pasta this is a nice change from all the rest of the pasta dishes we all make regularly.
Use the cheap pork chops or pork steaks. They are tougher and since they will be cooked for a while it won't matter and you can get a lot of them for very little money.
Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and cook off in an oven at 350 degrees F. for 20 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees F.
Remove the meat from the pork chops and Cut into 1/2 inch cubes and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan combine the undrained tomatoes, chicken soup base, water, bacon, garlic, thyme, and oregano. Heat through. Taste the sauce and see if it needs salt or pepper. Add the pork and simmer covered for at least 1/2 hour. I have let this simmer for over an hour with no problems.
Ten minutes before serving add vinegar and lemon juice and let simmer.
Cook the pasta just a little al dente. I use regular spaghetti but just about any long pasta would work.
Drain spaghetti and plate 1/2 on each. Top with pork mixture and sprinkle with scallions and top with a dollop of sour cream.
I tried this with grated Asiago cheese on top but I think it took away from the flavor but that is up to you.
