2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2 packets sazon seasoning (about 2 teaspoons)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 center-cut bone-in pork chops

(about 2 1/2 pounds)

1 14.5-ounce can petite diced tomatoes

1 pound potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1-inch rounds

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

2 bay leaves

1 tablespoon red or white wine vinegar


  1. Combine the flour, cumin, sazon, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Season the pork chops on both sides with some of the seasoned flour, then transfer to a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, onion, bell pepper, 1/4 cup cilantro, the garlic and bay leaves to the bowl with the remaining seasoned flour; toss. Pour the vegetables over the pork chops. Cover and cook on high, 4 hours.
  3. Transfer the pork chops to a platter. Skim off the fat from the cooking liquid and discard the bay leaves. Stir the vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro into the slow cooker; season with salt and pepper. Serve the pork chops with the vegetables and cooking liquid.
