Tender Pork Chops

Who doesn't love a good crockpot recipe? Here is a good one! Easy to throw together and the pork really is tender and juicy cooked this way. I don't think it was intended to sit on a bed of whole-wheat noodles, but is just seemed like the right thing to do. :) I really liked the mushrooms and the sauce! I think you could easily exchange pork for chicken as well.

Tender Pork Chops (Taste of Home)
6 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/2 cup water
1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oil over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side; drain. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the remaining ingredients. Top with pork chops. Cover and cook on low for 5-1/2 to 6 hours or until meat is tender. Yield: 6 servings.
