  2. Heat vegetable broth or oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions for 2 minutes.
  3. Add garlic for another minute.
  4. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, oregano, basil, and thyme to skillet. There should be a small amount of juice from the tomatoes to bring mixture to a low boil. If not, add 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable broth, being careful not to make the mixture too “liquidy.”
  5. Add pork chops to skillet and reduce heat. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes. Turn pork chops and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat when chops are finished cooking and serve smothered in tomato sauce.
Recipe Notes

Pork overcooks very quickly. The chops are usually finished about 10 minutes, depending on the heat, number, and size of the chops and the skillet. Check the center of one chop to be sure they are finished cooking.
