Step 1

1. Melt butter in Dutch oven until sizzling, stir in garlic. Add 4 pork chops. Cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until browned on both sides (4-6 minutes). Remove from pan; set aside. Repeat with remaining pork chops.
2. Return pork chops to pan. Stir in tomatoes, basil, salt & pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a boil (3-4 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, until pork chops are no longer pink (50-60 minutes). Remove pork chops, keep warm.
3. Stir together water and cornstarch in small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture into hot tomato mixture with wire whisk. Add green pepper and onion.
4. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thickened and vegetables are crispy tender (5-6 minutes). Serve sauce over pork chops.
