Lamb or Pork Chops and Balsamic Onions
- 4 pork chops, loin or center cut, or lamb chops, bone in or boneless, 1 inch thick
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 - 2 tblsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 - 3 tblsp olive or vegetable oil
- 1 tblsp onion powder
- 1 tblsp cumin, ground
- 1 tblsp allspice
- 1 tblsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
Combine cumin, paprika, allspice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Rub spice mixture all over your pork chops.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat until it shimmers or if you flick a drop of water in the oil it dances.
Cook pork chops, flipping once, about 4-6 minutes per side. If you are making lamb chops cook for about 3-5 minutes per side.
Remove chops on to a plate and set aside.
In the same skillet add your onions and stir regularly for between 8-10 minutes. Onions should be tender and starting to brown around the edges.
Add balsamic vinegar (if using) and continue to stir. Serve onions all over or with pork chops and enjoy!
