This recipe is something I have been wanting to share with you all for a while.  It’s my ‘go-to’ dish for pork chops, and it’s awesome, ya’ll.

And, so – so simple!

Not counting salt & pepper, this dish has just 5 ingredients – and only takes minutes to prep before finishing off in the oven.  I created it when I was going to make another dish, and realized I didn’t have the ingredients to do. Happens to all of us right?  This time though, it proved to be a good thing – and I ended up with a pork dish that my husband went on & on about how delicious it was.

It’s a little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory, and a whole lotta flavor.

And, I’m serious by how little time it takes to prep.  Follow along with me – you’ll see.

Sprinkle some thin to medium cut pork chops with salt & pepper.  Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet, and add in the chops.  Cook on medium-high heat until nicely browned on each side.

When browned, transfer the pork chops to a baking dish and sprinkle the top with steak seasoning (optional).

Stir the onions into the butter in the hot skillet.  Stir in the brown sugar & Worcestershire sauce, cook on medium-high heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.  The onion mixture will turn dark & lovely.

Pour this mixture over the pork chops.

Cover with tinfoil, & bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  The sauce doubles in the oven, so make sure you spoon every bit of extra sauce on the pork chops – and into cups to dip individual bites in.

Such a simple thing – but oh, so good.
