I love balsamic chicken with either onions or mushrooms but had not considered this combination with pork until seeing this recipe. So obvious and yet easy to overlook. The results are just as wonderful and easy to prepare. My only two suggestions are to wipe the pan between cooking the chops and onions and to double up on the onions as they will go fast. Thanks!!

Delicious! I was wary of cooking pork loin steaks, but these turned out so tasty, and not at all dry. The balsamic onions were the perfect accompaniment - like the first reviewer, I made double the amount of onions, which was just right with two steaks.

Delicious! The only thing I did differently was to double the recipe. Worked out great.
