Boneless Pork Cacciatore Recipe

 I love pork in sauce, it always makes a great flavored sauce. This one pan easy meal will make everyone happy and it's great served even over a cooked pasta or with rice that will stretch that family budge to feed a large group of people. 

Boneless Thick Pork Medallions

6 to 8 thick boneless pork chops
3 bell peppers sliced
8 plum tomatoes pulsed to a diced size
3 cloves minced garlic
1 can 16 ounce whole tomatoes with basil added pureed in the food processor
olive oil
1/2 cup white wine ( I used Pinot Grigio)
salt, pepper, cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes, oregano, parsley

Optional:  I sometimes throw in a can of mushrooms, peas or cut green beans for an additional vegetable at the end of cooking.  Also I add a handful of finger carrots for sweetness

Saute the pork  until nicely browned on both side in a fry pan and season to taste.

In a large enough Dutch oven transfer the pork to accommodate all the ingredients, add the tomatoes, wine, herbs and spices and garlic ( onion if using) to the pan. Top the with peppers and any other vegetables you would like except peas, add them 1/2 hour before  done.  Either simmer on top of stove around 2 hours on low or place in the preheated oven at 350 degrees until everything is cooked around 1 hour.
