Tangy Pork Chops

4 pork chops 1/2 inch thick (bone in or boneless)
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1/8 tsp pepper
2 medium onions, chopped (big chunks)
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 can (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes

1/2 cup ketchup
2 TBS cider vinegar
2 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1 TBS lemon juice
1 beef bouillon cube
2 TBS corn starch
2 TBS water


1 TBS flour
1 TBS water

Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper; place in slow cooker. Add onions, celery, green pepper and tomatoes. Combine ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and beef bouillon; pour over vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Mix cornstarch and water until smooth; put into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until it is thickened. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.

I used flour and water to thicken the mixture.
