2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 55 g uncooked bacon, chopped
  • 110 g (160 ml) yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄8 tsp salt
  • 1⁄8 tsp pepper
  • 1⁄2 tbsp olive oil, for sautéeing
  • 2 (550 g) pork chops, boneless, center-cut loin
  • 60 ml beef broth
  • 30 ml heavy whipping cream
  • salt and ground black pepper, for seasoning

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook for about 10-15 minutes or until crisp, turning occasionally. Transfer the bacon to a medium-sized bowl, and leave the bacon grease in the pan. Maintain medium heat.
  2. Add the onions, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir frequently for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Transfer onions to the bowl with bacon.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and add the oil. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, and place in the skillet. Brown on the first side for 3 minutes. Flip the chops, and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 7-10 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Remove to a platter and tent with foil. Maintain medium heat.
  4. Pour broth into the skillet and scrape up any browned bits. Add the cream, and stir together for 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Add the onions and bacon to the pan, and increase heat to medium-high. Stir frequently, and cook for about 8-10 minutes, or until mixture becomes golden and creamy.
  5. For serving, top the pork chops with the creamy onion and bacon mixture.

Tip

Green it up! Hearty and rich pork chops are perfectly complemented with a generous helping of fresh, spicy greens, such as arugula.
