3 A Winner and Braised Pork Chops with Peppers and Onions

First off, the winner of the Emile Henry pie dish is Erin Simpson! Erin, I will email you!

Secondly, I made these pork chops this weekend and they were delicious! :-)
And easy and pretty quick to cook!
Braised Pork Chops with Peppers and Onions
4 boneless pork loin chops
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 small red bell peppers, or yellow bell peppers, quartered and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 small red or yellow onion, quartered and cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 cup dry red wine, (for non-alcoholic, substitute chicken or vegetable broth) (I used Chicken Broth)
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove chops to a plate and set aside.
Add tomato paste to skillet and cook, stirring, for 15 seconds. Add bell peppers and onion to skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute.
Add wine and bring to a boil, scraping up and stirring in any browned bits in the skillet. Return chops to skillet, nestling them in the liquid, and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook 4 minutes. Turn chops, cover, and cook until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
Serve pork with pepper and onion mixture spooned on top.
Pork: Be Insired
Pin It!


  1. congrats to Erin on winning! what a great win!

  2. I feel like I don't cook pork chops enough, and I guess it's mainly because I feel like I keep using the same 'ole recipes. Thanks for this one.

    Congrats Erin!

  3. You inspired our dinner last night! We had a bunch of peppers we needed to use up and some open red wine, so I bought some pork at the grocery and voila, dinner! I have to admit my husband cooked it (he is actually the better cook in our house) and it was delicious! I had to start watching bachelorette! :)
