This is my favorite way to make pork chops. Super easy and great for a weeknight meal.


  • 4 Bone-in Pork Chops
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Onions, red (pictured) or yellow (sliced)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Marjoram
  • 1/2 cup Dry Vermouth
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth


Step 1
Preheat to 325 degrees
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Step 2
Spray pam on tinfoil and place in oven
Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with pam. Place in oven.
Step 3
Season Pork Chops
Season pork chops with salt & pepper. Just a shake or two per side.
Step 4
Heat pan and olive oil
In a large skillet heat skillet on high with 1 Tablespoon of oil.
Step 5
Cook Pork Chops on High
Add Pork chops to hot skillet, being sure to leave at least 1/2 inch around each chop to allow them to cook properly.

Do not move the pork chops around. Cook it on high for about 2 minutes, or until it is golden brown on the first side. Again, to check, just lift it up a little, no need to move it around.
Step 6
Flip pork chops and cook until browned
Flip the pork chop and cook the 2nd side until it is lightly browned, just like the first.
Step 7
Place in oven to finish cooking
Once the pork chops are browned, put in the oven on top of the heated tin foil. Cook additional pork chops using the above steps.
Step 8
Brown Onions
Once all the pork chops are cooked, using the same pan (without cleaning it), add the onions and cook on high until the onions are browned. I chose to use a mixture of red and yellow onions.
Step 9
Add Thyme and Vermouth and cook until liquid is reduced
To the onion mixture, add the Marjoram and dry vermouth. Cook on high until the liquid is mostly gone.

Add 1 cup of chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the pork chops are ready, that will be about 10 minutes. Pork chops are done when they reach 145 degrees.
Step 10
Onion Gravy over Chops
Remove pork chops from the oven and set aside. To thicken the gravy, take 1/2 cup of cold chicken broth and mix in 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch.

Bring the onion mixture to a boil and slowly add cornstarch and broth mixture. Boil on medium for at least one minute. Remove from heat and serve over pork chops.
