1/1 Photo of Pork Chops Smothered in Caramelized Onions
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!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Season both sides of pork chops with garlic powder, sage, thyme, salt and pepper.
- 2Melt 2 tbs. butter in a large skillet over medium heat, evenly coating the bottom of the skillet.
- 3Increase 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.).
- 4Push 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.
- 5Replace 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.).
- 6Check 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.).
- 7Serve pork chops with caramelized onions piled on top.
