braised pork chops with onion

Braising is a cooking technique that involves cooking meat slowly in liquid. It’s a great way to create tender and flavorful dishes, such as braised pork chops with onion.

Choose the right pork chops
Select bone-in pork chops that are about 1 inch thick for the best results.

Season the chops
Rub the pork chops with a mixture of salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs and spices.

Sear the chops
Heat some oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and sear the pork chops on both sides until browned.

Add the onion
Add sliced onions to the skillet and cook until they are soft and translucent.

Deglaze the pan
Pour in some chicken or beef broth to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom.

Braise the chops
Return the pork chops to the skillet, cover with a lid, and let them simmer on low heat for about 1-1.5 hours, or until the meat is tender.

Thicken the sauce
If the sauce is too thin, you can thicken it by mixing some cornstarch with water and stirring it into the skillet.

Serve and enjoy
Serve the braised pork chops with onion hot, and enjoy the savory and tender dish with your favorite side dishes.
