Step 1

Combine the flour and the next two ingredients (1 tsp salt and pepper) in a large ziplock freezer bag. Add chops; seal bag and shake to coat.

Step 2

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add 4 chops. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to a 15 x 10 inch baking dish. Repeat procedure with remaining chops.

Step 3

Sprinkle chops with 1 teaspoon paprika. Wipe skillet with a paper towel.

Step 4

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a skillet until hot. Add onion; sprinkle with sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, 20 minutes or until tender and golden. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add 1 tablespoon paprika; stir well. Spoon mixture over chops. Pour broth over onion mixture. Cover and bake at 350-degrees F for 30 - 45 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chops (ie; thinner/smaller), you may need to adjust the cooking time to less to prevent the chops from being dry). Remove from oven; transfer chops to a serving platter. Pour onion mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a 4 cup glass measuring cup. Add enough water to broth mixture to measure 2 1/2 cups, if necessary. Set aside.

Step 5

Return solids in strainer to baking dish; top with chops. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 3-5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Set aside, and keep warm.

Step 6

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add 5 tablespoons flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add reserved broth mixture; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the salt and pepper, tasting and correcting seasoning, if necessary. Serve chops with onion and sauce.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These were the juiciest baked chops we have ever had! Baked them for 30 minutes in my counter top oven. I cut the recipe to two serves and wished I hadn't. Really enjoyed the technique of making these chops. This is another keeper recipe. Thank you for sharing ForeverMama! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
