Pork Chops Cacciatore

Crock Pot "Hunter's Style"


This dish is truly divine,  very refine taste with the using of the dry white wine.The jalapeno pepper gives the dish a slightly spicy favor. Cacciatore refers to hearty stew-like dishes, usually prepared with onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, wine and peppers  ingredients an Italian hunter might have in he's pack. Cacciatore is in fact,  Italian meaning "hunter style" This dish is perfect served over rice. My dinner  guests really loved this tasty flavorful recipe, and I am sure you well too.

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium bone in pork chops ( remove fat)

10-ounce white mushrooms, washed and sliced thin
 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
