Instead of making pork chops the way you always do, we suggest giving these a try! They're weeknight-perfect and the bacon-onion marmalade delivers a whole lot of flavor. So, grab a skillet (we suggest a cast iron one, if you have it!) and get ready to cook up something new and delicious for dinner tonight!

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 slices 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.

Great! So easy to prepare, this is a KEEPER! Wonderful flavor. Will be making this often. Thank you. Never ever be without at least a few cast iron skillets. So so versatile. This is definitely a 10.

If this is wonderful, will be making often, and definitely a 10, then how come only a 1 star rating?

Good thing I own a cast iron skillet. ;) I love to try new recipes and this pork chops with bacon onion marmalade sure sounds great. I fry my chops from time to time but I never have prepared them for frying in the fashion described here so I have learned a new way to cook them.

I am trying this recipe this weekend and just by reading it can tell it's going to get a 5 star rating! The one thing I may change is adding the crispy cooked bacon at the very end of the dish. To keep it crunchy! Thanks for all the great new recipe ideas.

Now this is a great pork chop recipe. Just last week I prepared pork chops for my family in one of the three ways I do, fried, barbecued or baked. This recipe will take the fried version to a whole new level.
