Daily Dinner Ideas #2

Creole Pork Chops

4 loin or rib pork chops. 1" thick
1 tsp cooking oil
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
2 T. butter
1 medium yellow onion (minced)
1 medium sweet green pepper (seeded,cored and minced)
1 1/2 c. canned tomatoes (coarsely chopped)
1/4 tsp sugar
2-3 dashes liquid hot pepper seasoning

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove excess fat from chops and brown them 5-7 minutes on each side over moderately low heat in a skillet. Brush them with oil and transfer to a lightly greased or buttered 2 1/2 qt. casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Pour off all but 1 Tablespoon of drippings from skillet, add butter and saute onions and green peppers over moderate heat 8-10 minutes until onion is golden.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour sauce over pork chops, cover and bake for 50-60 minutes until fork tender.

Serve over your favorite garden rice or spicy creole beans.
