Quick and Simple Pork Chops

An adaptation of this recipe on AllRecipes.

6 pork chops
1 large or 2 smallish onions, sliced
chili peppers (if desired), chopped
2 cups of vegetable broth
~1 tbsp dried oregano
~1 tbsp dried basil
~1 tbsp paprika
2-3 cloves of crushed garlic
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
olive oil
salt and pepper

TIP: My favorite anti-stick method is to pour a little olive oil on a paper towel and coat the inside of the crock pot.

Spread the onions and peppers on the bottom of the crock pot. Salt and pepper both sides of pork chops while heating up some olive oil in a big pot or pan. I can fit three at a time in my pot so I lightly brown each side, 3 at a time. Spread them on top of the onions and peppers in the pot. Add the 2 cups of vegetable broth to the pot/pan you used for browning and scrape the delicious bits of pork from the bottom of the pot. Add herbs, garlic, and a dash of Worcestershire sauce and olive oil. Whisk it together and add salt and pepper to taste. Pop on the lid and cook on high for 4 hours.

This one is in progress, I'll report back with how it tastes after dinner.
