Step by Step Method

Step 1

Spray the broiler rack with non-stick cooking spray; preheat the broiler.

Step 2

In a sealable plastic bag, mix about half the vinegar, about half the sugar and all of the salt; seal the bag and shake until the sugar dissolves.

Step 3

Add the pork.

Step 4

Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat the pork.

Step 5

Let stand while you start to caramelize the onions.

Step 6

In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.

Step 7

Add the onions and remaining sugar; sauté until the onions begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

Step 8

Add the broth and cook, stirring as needed, until most of the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes.

Step 9

Stir in the remaining vinegar, flour and pepper; cook, stirring as needed, until the onions are dark golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Step 10

Drain the pork, discarding the marinade.

Step 11

Broil the pork 5" from the heat until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side.

Step 12

Serve topped with the onions.

This worked out well for us. My pork was from the sale rack so I marinated it longer than indicated and also this is was about 2 inches thick, cooked it for longer than indicated too. Served with salad for a very good meal. Thanks for sharing!

Seriously, what is not to like about this recipe. Balsamic pairs so well with beef, pork and chicken. Carameized onions are to die for delicious in any recipe and it really brought it over the top for me when I grilled the pork on my little gas grill using wood chips. Such a delicious dinner! Thank you for sharing it with us Patti! Linda

A great pork chop recipe that makes for great chops, the caramelized onions are awesome. My mandoline made short work of slicing the onions. I did use the stove top for the chops and reminded myself I really need to bring up my little grill as out of sight sees to it not being used. So a repeatable!

It's so easy to have pork chops come out dry, but not in this recipe. My chops didn't really brown too much, but that didn't matter because you serve with onions over the top. And those onions are really good.

This is a great tasting pork chop recipe; we loved this. I let the chops marinate for a couple of hours and then followed recipe accordingly. The onions in the sauce are divine!!
