Servings 1


  • 2 small red onions
  • balsamic vinegar
  • pork chop
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 clove of garlic halved
  • 1 tbsp butter


  • Start by preheating your oven to 450F.
  • If you are roasting potatoes with your meal, I would recommend placing them in the oven 10 minutes prior to your onions.
  • Prior to roasting your onions, slice them in half.
  • Place them in a roasting pan with the sliced sides facing up. Season with salt & pepper, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  • Roast onions for about 20 minutes, or until soft and caramelized.
  • While your onions are roasting, add about a tablespoon of olive oil into a pan on medium-high heat.
  • Season both sides of your pork chop with salt & pepper.
  • Place pork chop in the heated pan, cooking for about 5-8 minutes on one side, until caramelized. Flip pork chop, cooking for about 3 more minutes on the other side, until internal temperature reaches 145F.
  • While the pork chop is resting (about 5-10 minutes), reduce the pan to medium heat. Place a tablespoon of butter in the pan, along with your chives and garlic. Heat until butter has melted and begins bubbling and turning brown.
  • Drizzle butter over pork chop, serve with roast onions and your desired vegetable and starch sides!
