Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe
I created this dish for my husband, as he loves the flavor of deeply caramelized onions. It was a big hit and is sure to become one of our regular meals. I served it with homemade applesauce and skillet country potatoes. Yummm!

Not sure if I like the onions or the pork chops, but whatever, the onions are wonderful. We love them and carmelizing brings out the flavor. I always use boneless rib chops because they are much more tender than loin. Thanks for a great comfort food recipe.
- 2 boneless pork chops, with as much fat removed as possible
- 2.46 ml garlic powder
- 1.23 ml ground sage
- 1.23 ml ground thyme
- 1.23 ml salt
- 1.23 ml black pepper, freshly ground
- 44.37 ml butter
- 236.59 ml onion, thinly sliced
- 9.85 ml sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- Season both sides of pork chops with garlic powder, sage, thyme, salt and pepper.
- Melt 2 tbs. butter in a large skillet over medium heat, evenly coating the bottom of the skillet.
- Increase heat to medium-high. Cook both sides of chops for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. (Note: It is okay if the chops are not completely done, as there is more cooking time to come.).
- Push chops to outside edges of skillet. Melt the remaining 1 tbs. butter in the center of the skillet and add onions to the center of the skillet, sprinkling with sugar.
- Replace skillet cover and cook for 10 minutes, frequently tossing and stirring onions with a spatula. Onions are caramelized when tender and medium-brown in color. My husband prefers cooking them until slightly burned, as the flavor intensifies. (Note: Don't forget to watch your chops to make sure they don't burn.).
- Check chops for doneness before serving. They will be done when a fork piercing the thickest part of the chop draws clear juice. If the juice is pink, cook chops a bit longer until done. (Note: Make sure to watch onions, so they don't burn.).
- Serve pork chops with caramelized onions piled on top.
