An easy one pot dinner recipe that's sure to please. These Italian Pork chops, simmered in a rich tomato basil sauce, come out moist & tender & ready in 30! Serve over zoodles for a low carb option or everyone's favorite pasta to soak up all that delicious sauce.
Add pork chops and brown quickly on both sides. Remove from skillet.
Add onion and garlic to skillet and saute for about 5 minutes or until onion is soft and translucent.
Add wine to pan and stir to deglaze (or get every last bit of that scrumptious browned pork bits off the bottom of the pan).
Return pork chops to pan.
Add spaghetti sauce and fresh basil leaves, cover and let cook for about 30 minutes.
Note: If serving over zoodles, remove pork chops from pan after they have finished cooking then toss the zucchini noodles into sauce just long enough to warm up.
Do I need to use boneless pork chops?
Not at all! You can use either bone-in or boneless. If using bone-in, cook them slightly longer. In fact, you'll probably find the bone-in ones comes out slightly more tender.
How thick of a pork chop should I purchase?
I like to get chops that are between 3/4" to 1" thick. If you have less thick ones, adjust the cooking time downward.
What else can I serve with this recipe?
I've served this dish over pasta and rice or riced cauliflower. You can add a toss salad or roasted vegetables to complete the meal.
