Pork Chops Smothered in Onions and Bacon

pork-chop This is one of the go-to recipes when unexpected company shows up or you want something a little more elegant for a quiet dinner for two. Either way, it’s fast and tasty.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 slices of bacon, diced and fried crisp.
  • 1 small-medium onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 pork chops bone-in or boneless
  • 1/2 c chicken broth
  • 1/2 c cream
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper

INGREDIENTS:

  1. Remove the bacon to a paper-towel lined plate and reserve.
  2. Fry the onions in the bacon grease until caramelized. Remove with a slotted spoon.
  3. Salt and pepper the pork chops and fry until well browned on both sides and reduce heat and continue cooking until done.
  4. Remove pork chops and add the broth and cream. Once it is nice and bubbly, add the butter in bits, and whisk in until the sauce thickens.
  5. Either plate the chops and cover with the onions and bacon and sauce, or leave the sauce in a gravy boat for individual adding.

SERVES: 2

NOTES: Add mushrooms if you wish. That would kick it out of the park. You might add some fresh thyme, parsley, or rosemary if you wish as well.
