  • 4 (1-inch-thick) pork chops (10 oz. each)
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, halved and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 cup dry white wine or water
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Add pork chops, reduce heat to medium and cook, turning once, until nicely browned and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

Pour off extra grease from pan. Put onion in same pan and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in wine and thyme. Increase heat to medium-high and bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Stir in sugar. Add butter and any accumulated juices from pork and stir to combine.

Serve pork chops with onions and pan juices spooned on top. Serve with a green vegetable and bread.
