Pork Chops with Bacon/Onion Marmalade


Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 21 minutes

What You’ll Need:
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 slice crispy-cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 (1-inch thick) pork loin chops
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening

What To Do:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and saute onion 6 to 8 minutes or until soft. Add balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; heat 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in bacon and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, combine flour, paprika, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper; mix well. Place milk in another shallow dish. Dip pork chops in milk, then in flour mixture, coating completely. Then, dip again in milk and flour mixture.
  3. In a large cast iron skillet, heat shortening over medium heat until hot, but not smoking. Add chops and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through and coating is golden. Drain on paper towel-lined platter. Spoon bacon and onion mixture over pork chops, and serve.
