Swiss-Style Pork Chops
Buttered Potatoes
Broccoli, Hungarian Style

Cooking time:   45 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

   My mother made Swiss Steak when I was a child, and it was one of my favorites.  Mon mari is not willing for me to bury steak in this type of sauce but pork chops are an excellent substitute.  I don't have a crock pot (slow cooker) but I think this would be a good fit. Cook them for 20 minutes or longer, as you like.

    Pork chops, smothered in tomatoes, peppers and onions, in the style of old-fashioned Swiss Steak, are fork tender and chock-a-block with flavor.
