Italian Style Braised
Pork Chops



The first time I had these Italian style raised Pork Chops at my Uncle's house, I knew had to have the recipe for my family. I love it when he pulls out the gallon of homemade wine. It just makes the meal so much more Italian.

Braised pork chop is a simple dish that can be served on a nice bed of fried polenta or on top of creamy risotto.

If you have the homemade wine please use it. If not, a great bottle of Barolo or Amarone will work perfectly.

Savor this one. You'll be frequently including it in your family gatherings.
