Saucy Pork Chops

These are super easy to make pork chops in a rich tomato sauce. Again, this is a family classic. It was my mother's recipe and we always called it the "P Meal" when we were kids because we inevitably always had it with Peas and Potatoes (mashed). It's good for kids and grown-ups alike.

4 - 6 Pork chops
3 TBL butter
1 medium red onion, sliced
¼ cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 TBL worcestershire sauce
2 TBL soy sauce
8 oz can tomato paste

400° - Cook pork chops in a glass baking dish for 15 minutes. 7 minutes or so for each side to drain off fat.

While pork chops have started baking make sauce:

Sauté butter with red onion, brown sugar and a pinch of salt until onion is soft. Add and simmer balsamic vinegar, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and tomato paste.

Turn oven down to 350° and pour sauce over pork chops. Cook for half an hour or until thermometer reads 160°.

Yields: 4 - 6 servings

Time to make: 45 min
