Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions and Peppers

Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions and PeppersThis elegantly simple pork chop dish borrows heavily from the Mediterranean for its flavors. Serve with soft polenta and a garlicky green salad.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
Olive oil
Garlic pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (7-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Brush chops lightly with oil and generously sprinkle both sides of chops with garlic pepper. Cook chops for 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until evenly browned. Remove chops to a serving platter; keep warm.
  2. Add onion, sugar and garlic to skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until onion is lightly browned. Stir in roasted peppers and vinegar; heat through.
  3. Serve onion mixture over chops.

Makes 2 servings.
