Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 pork chops (1 lb/450 g total)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
Sweet and Sour Onion:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Sweet and Sour Onion: In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add vinegar, sugar, thyme sprigs, salt and pepper; cook over medium-low heat until onion is caramelized, about 15 minutes. Discard thyme.

Meanwhile, combine brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper; rub onto both sides of pork chops.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook pork chops until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve topped with onion mixture.
