Step by Step Method

Step 1

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the pork and cook, turning once, until browned, about 2 minutes per side.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer registers 140°F, 3 to 5 minutes more.

Step 4

Transfer the pork to a plate and tent with foil.

Step 5

Add onions and thyme to the pan; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

Step 6

Add broth and water; cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Step 7

Uncover and cook, stirring often, until the onions are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Step 8

Stir in raisins and vinegar, scraping up any browned bits; bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes.

Step 9

Remove from heat and stir in butter.

Step 10

Serve the pork with the sauce, topped with parsley.

Awesome chops, as always as good as I thought they would be. Great to have daughter here for her noon hour as cooking for two so much easier than for one. I only used two chops but followed through with the rest of the ingredients. Fresh flat leaf parsely from the garden which I snipped into the pan before serving. Served over pasta along with an individual garden salad topped with homemade Russian dressing. Perfect for a chilly and rainy day. We both enjoyed those chops!

We really enjoyed these chops with baked potatoes and a tossed salad. Made as directed, just skipping the raisins (which next time I will remember to add). Delicious and thanks for sharing!

This was so delicious...I didn't have the golden raisins so used the dark ones...I'm not sure the golden ones wouldn't have turned dark with the balsamic vinegar...made for Billboard tag game...
