Sweet Onion—Smothered Pork Chops


1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 (4-ounce) boneless pork chops, each 1/2 inch thick

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cups thinly sliced Vidalia onions

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 garlic cloves. minced

2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano leaves


Put a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a small bowl, combine the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Season the pork chops on both sides with this spice mixture. Add the olive oil to the preheated pan. Add the pork and cook, without moving, until a crust begins to form, about 2 minutes. Flip the pork and scoot it to one side of the pan. Add the onions and season with a good pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and begin to color, about 2 minutes.  Add the butter, garlic, and oregano and cook, while stirring, for an additional minute. Top each piece of pork with the onions and serve.
