The seasoning in this dish is so simple but the flavors are great! I used two large 1" thick chops, 1 huge sweet onion (which probably equaled at least 4 cups chopped) and a cup of homemade pork stock. It was kind of an onion overload for just two people but the onions were so full of flavor that we ate them all. This dish was delicious, decadent, and above all, easy! We'll be having this often!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Seasoning Mix

  • 2 12 teaspoons salt
  • 2 14 teaspoons ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 14 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 12 12 inches thick pork chops (about 2 3/4 pounds)
  • 4 12 tablespoons margarine, divided (not spread or tub product)
  • 4 cups onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
  • 3 cups pork stock


  1. Combine the seasoning mix ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle evenly on both sides of the chops, making sure to use all of it.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  5. Grease a skillet heavily with 1 tablespoon margarine and heat until very hot.
  6. Add the pork chops in batches and brown well (about 3 minutes/side).
  7. Transfer to a large baking pan.
  8. Melt the remaining margarine over high heat.
  9. Add 2 cups of the onions and sauté until dark golden (about 5 minutes), stirring frequently to prevent scorching.

  12. Pour the stock around the edges and seal the pan with foil.
