Ingredients: Assorted Pork Chops (6-8), 2 tbsp. of canola oil, 2 tbsp. of butter; Rub=2 tbsp. of paprika, 1 tbsp. of garlic powder; 1 tbsp. of onion powder; 2 tsp.of salt; 1 tbsp. of ground black pepper; 2 tbsp. of brown sugar; 5 diced onions and salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Prepare the rub and mix it well. Then, rub the “Rub” on both sides of each pork chop. Let the pork chops sit for about 30 minutes. Heat the oil and butter to a medium level. Brown each chop then in the oil and butter on each side. Set the browned pork chops in a baking dish. Bake the pork chops for 45 minutes at 325 degrees.
Brown the onions in the drippings at a slow and low heat untilt hey are “carmelized.” This will take about 45 minutes. This carmelization process brings all of the wonderful flavor out of the onions and they are delicious. (My mom used to make me carmelized onion sandwiches when I was a little girl. They were to die for!)
After the pork chops have been baked, take them out of the oven and let them sit for about 20 minutes. Serve the onions over the pork chops.
This meal is really delicious and inexpensive. I buy assorted chops. You don’t have to invest in expensive thick, center-cut chops. Because of this cooking process, they are extremely flavorful and tender. And, I use sweet onions because they are plentiful where I live.
Enjoy! You can serve this entree’ with mashed potatoes which is particularly delicious with a healthy garden salad. I can serve 4-6 people with this meal. You can take any leftover pork and make pork chow mein. My husband loves this leftover!
Now, enjoy your meal with your family and/or friends, but first, please say “Grace” and thank God for all of his wonderful blessings and for this meal!
Love to You!
