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.

Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time:  low 8-9 hours
Yield : 4 servings

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium bone in pork chops ( remove fat)
   1 large onion coarsely chopped
   2 cloves garlic sliced very thin
1/2 cup dry white wine
 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and coarsely chopped
10-ounce white mushrooms, washed and sliced thin
 2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon minced parsley 
1. Lightly spray a 6-quart slow cooker with vegetable oil cooking spray.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium- high heat. Brown pork chops, onion, and garlic.Place the browned chops in the slow cooker. Add the wine to the skillet, bring to a simmer, and scrape off any brown particles. Pour over chicken in the slow cooker. 
3 Add the jalapeno pepper,mushrooms, wine, tomatoes,salt and pepper to slow cooker.
