What are Swiss Pork Chops?

Swiss Pork Chops are a variation of the Swiss Steak dish but with pork chops instead of beef steak. The “Swiss” in the name doesn’t allude to Switzerland, but rather it’s an English term for a method of cooking called “swissing,” used to make meat tender. This involves slow-cooking meat in a flavorful sauce, often tomato-based, until it becomes extremely tender and flavorful.
