I’m proud to say that since mid-December, I’ve lost a total of nine pounds. I’ve been very mindful of each and every item I’m putting into my mouth, and I’ve drastically cut back on my intake of white flour and white sugar products.
Luckily for me, I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth so cutting back of sugary treats hasn’t really been a problem. However, the cutting back of white flour products like bread and bagels isn’t quite as easy.
I do, however, love a hearty portion of protein with some ooey, gooey cheese. Enter, stage left, Boneless French Onion Pork Chops and take your much-deserved bow!
What IS easy for me to do when rearranging my lifestyle in order to lose weight and get fit, is increase my protein intake. I tend to crave protein in all sorts of ways.
Eggs are one of my favorite forms of protein as is turkey, chicken, and pork. Beef is nice too, but it’s not something I gravitate towards (unlike my husband who could live on beef for breakfast, lunch, and dinner). That said, whenever I make these French Onion Pork Chops for dinner, everyone comes running!
Topped with a little bit of Swiss cheese (or feel free to use Gruyère), serve these French Onion Pork Chops along with a nice side salad and some Roasted Parsnips & Carrots with Cardamom & Maple Syrup.
Or, if you’re feeling indulgent, how about over some mashed potatoes, pasta or even polenta or rice? Oh no! What have I done? Now my stomach is seriously growling at me! ACK!
All the flavors you love in a traditional French onion soup are captured in this recipe for Boneless French Onion Pork Chops.
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
- 4-5 large sweet onions, sliced
- 7 - 8 sprigs fresh thyme plus additional for garnish
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional to season the chops
- ½ teaspoon pepper, plus additional to season the chops
- ¼ cup dry red or white wine
- ½ cup beef or chicken stock
- 4 ounces shredded Swiss or Gruyere cheese
- Brush the Dijon mustard evenly on both sides of the pork chops.
- Season each chop, on both sides, with salt and pepper.
- Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet over medium/high heat and brown the chops on both sides, (approximately 2-3 minutes per side).
- Remove the browned chops to a plate and keep warm.
In the same skillet add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the butter, and the sliced onions, stirring well to coat the onions in the oil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper.
- Cook the onions, stirring only occasionally, until they're golden brown and caramelized. This should take at least 15 minutes over medium/high heat.
- Add the wine, stock, and fresh thyme to the onions, making sure to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Cook an additional 2-3 minutes after the addition of the wine and stock, stirring frequently.
- Reduce the heat to medium and add the chops back into the skillet along with the onions.
Cover the skillet and cook for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the chops are no longer pink in the center.
- Remove the cover and add the shredded cheese to the top of each chop.
- Return the cover to the skillet. Turn off the heat, and allow the cheese to melt.
- Garnish the top of each chop with a sprig or two of fresh thyme.
- Serve the chops on a bed of caramelized onions, making sure to remove the older thyme sprigs before serving.
