Direction

1

Toss onion slices and olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat until onions are evenly coated with oil. Cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, about 25 to 35 more minutes.

2

While the onions are cooking, rub both sides of the pork chops with salt, pepper, and chili powder.

3

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add pork chops to the hot skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and season chops with more salt, pepper, and chili powder, if desired. Add garlic to the pan and pour in 1/2 of the balsamic vinegar to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, flip the chops, and add the remaining balsamic vinegar. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 4 to 5 minutes.

4

Place caramelized onions in the pan with the pork chops. Cook, flipping chops at least 1 more time, until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes longer. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
