- Cook for another minute before adding the tomato purée and tomatoes.
- Season, add the water or stock, then stir again.
- Pour this sauce over the chops and cook in the preheated oven for 1½ hours, or until the pork is tender and cooked through, and the sauce has reduced.
- Cover with foil if needed towards the end of cooking if overbrowning.
- Serve with rice or Rice and Peas.
