French Onion Pork Chops


1 lb. boneless pork chops

3 Tbsp olive or avocado oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large white onion

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

¼ cup coconut cream

¾ cup chicken or vegetable broth

Parsley (for garnish)


Ingredients for the seasoning

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/8 teaspoon oregano

1/8 teaspoon thyme



1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat the pork chops with paper towels to dry.

2. Combine all ingredients for seasoning in a small bowl. Cover both sides of the pork chops generously and place in the hot pan. *Don’t move the pork chops in the pan as they are searing. Allow them to brown on each side for about 3 minutes, turning once. When finished, set aside on a plate.

3. While pork chops are cooking, thinly slice the onion and mince the garlic.

4. After removing the pork chops, add sliced onions to the same skillet. *Do not wash the skillet before adding the onions.

5. Reduce the heat and cook the onions on low for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.

6. Add the garlic and vinegar, season with a little salt, and stir. Sauté together for another 2-3 minutes.

7. Stir in the coconut cream and broth, scraping the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon. Return the pork chops to the skillet.

8. Bring liquid to a simmer and cook everything together over low heat for another 5-6 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through. *Timing will depend on the thickness of your pork chops. Internal temperature once rested should be 145° F.

9. Sprinkle with parsley and serve pork chops with a spoonful of onions and sauce, and your favorite green veggie.

10. Enjoy!
