Reign Smothered Pork Chops

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MISSJ1978

My neighbor across the hall gave this recipe to me. He had tried it with veal and loved it. I made it with the pork chops as directed. I used red onion, but think I will try one vidalia onion and one red onion next time.

For those that may not know, this dish was a staple item at Reign Restaurant in Beverly Hills back in the early 2000's. The restaurant was owned by NFL player Keyshawn Johnson. It was outstanding when served at the restaurant and so easy to make at home. Glad I have the recipe because the restaurant has been closed for a few years now.
