  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 bone-in pork loin centre chops 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick (8 oz/250g each)

In large heavy skillet, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat; brown chops, turning once, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Melt remaining butter in same skillet over medium heat; fry onion, caraway seeds, salt and pepper until softened, about 8 minutes.
