Homemade Marinara for Pork Chops

 This recipe is tasty, easy, and great for putting over pork chops and other meat. I got this from a friend a few years ago when she brought this meal to us after our house fire.

You can find the other two recipes for the meal pictured here: Paleo Breaded Pork Chops and Cauliflower Rice ~ all three are Paleo and Gluten Free.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  2. 1 small-medium onion, chopped
  3. 2 cloves garlic, chopped (I use more.)
  4. 1 stalk celery, chopped
  5. 2 (32 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
  6. 4-6 basil leaves
  7. 2 dried bay leaves
  8. Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  9. Butter (optional - I don't use)
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add celery and carrot. Continue to cook about 5 more minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, basil, and bay leaves. Reduce heat to low. Cover pot and simmer for 1 hour, or until thick.
  4. Remove bay leaves and taste for seasoning. If sauce taster too acidic, add butter (1 teaspoon at a time, to round out the flavor). - I have never needed to do this.
  5. Pour half the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Continue with remaining tomato sauce.
  6. While the sauce is simmering, prepare your pork chops (or other meat).
Notes
  1. If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and then pour 1 to 2 cup portions into plastic freezer bags. Freeze up to 6 months.
