Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions

Servings 4 people


  • olive oil
  • 4 6-oz. boneless pork chops
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup white wine or use white grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar


  • Heat a small amount of olive oil (you don’t need much) in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and brown well for 5 minutes per side.
  • Remove from skillet and keep warm. To the same skillet, add the onions.
  • Cook until browned and caramelized (8 to 10 minutes), stirring occasionally to keep them from sticking or cooking too much in one place. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  • Add wine (or juice/vinegar) to the skillet and whisk up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer until liquid is reduced and slightly thickened.
  • Serve sauce over the pork chops and top with the caramelized onions. Enjoy!!
