A really nice mid-week dinner. I made a few adjustments based on necessity. Used "loin" chops because it's what I had, and pan-fried in a small amount of oil because it was 20 degrees outside. And since I was using a Penzey's cajun spice mixture that was labeled "very hot", I reduced the amount to 3 teaspoons. (Good thing, because they weren't just woofin' about the heat level!) Despite the fact that they weren't grilled, the chops exceeded expectations. Very yummy! But we were a little disappointed in the onions. I followed directions exactly on those, but they were just too sweet for everyone. Next time, I'm going to decrease the sugar and add more lemon juice and pepper. This is such a nice recipe, with very clear instructions and plenty of room to adapt to personal taste. Thanks for sharing, lazyme.
Delicious. I used Montreal Seasoning instead of the Cajun. The caramelized onions were the star of the show and the pork chops merely a meaty foil to their savoury-sweetness. Very easy to make - which gives it an extra star.
Fabulous! I used Cajun Seasoning for the cajun seasoning. It was raining outside so I used my George Foreman Grill. My chops were boneless and about 3/4 inch thick so I cooked them for 6-8 minutes. I loved the carmelized onions and next time I will double them! You won't go wrong if you make this simple recipe!
