Smothered Pork Chops

Some dishes are hard to cook just for one or two people, this is a dish that can easily be made for a few people, and is a favorite in our home.

The cast: thick cut pork chops, can of tomatoes, garlic, potato, spinach, shallots, mushrooms

Chop up the shallots (from the onion family, but milder and smaller so I don't cry a river)

Saute' the shallots in olive or grape seed oil on high heat

Place chops in pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side on high heat. Sprinkle some Italian seasonings or herbs on top

Turn the heat down to low and cover each chop with diced tomatoes (petite diced are best)

Chop up some potatoes and place them in the pan. Cover the pan and cook for 45 min on low heat.

While that is cooking chop up some mushrooms. After the dish has cooked for about 20 minutes add in the mushrooms.

Then add some fresh spinach for some green (or don't if you don't like it). The dish is ready when the chops are cooked through and the potatoes and mushrooms are soft.

Dish up and serve the chops with the potatoes, mushrooms and spinach. Great with a side of green beans.
(If you or others you are serving don't like tomatoes they can be taken off and the chop alone is tender and tasty!)
This whole meal is only 8 WW points!
