Allrecipes has started a magazine, and they sent us a preview copy, which is where I got this recipe for Slow-Cooker Pork Cacciatore. We still have a lot of pork chops left from our pig, so we are always looking for new ways to make them. I passed over this recipe when I first saw it, but Tim thought it looked good. Since I’ve gone paleo, we don’t have many pasta-type/tomato dishes, and the Timmy Tee misses them.
This turned out fantastic! I put it together over lunch yesterday in about 20 minutes, and then put it in the Nesco at about 200 from 12:30 to 5:30. We ended up being able to cut the pork chops with a fork, they were that tender.
I followed the recipe pretty closely with two exceptions. I did not add the diced tomatoes, and I also left off the cheese. We had plenty of sauce, so I think I made the right call. Next time I make this, I’m going to add some hot peppers to give it some kick.
