Pork Chops with Fig & Caramelized Onion Sauce

Submitted by: KLWOZNIAK


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Ingredients:
    4 boneless lean pork chops, about 4 oz each, or 1 1-lb pork tenderloin
    salt & pepper, to taste (for pork)
    2 tsp whipped butter*
    2 tsp olive oil
    salt (for onion mixture)
    1 white or yellow onion
    1 teaspoon sugar*
    2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, minced, divided
    10 mission (dark) figs, quartered
    1/4 cup water or stock
    1 Tbsp chopped parsley
    1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
    Black pepper


Directions

Directions:
1. Slice the onion into strips lengthwise (from the top to the root end). Cutting the onion this way helps keep the pieces hold their shape.

2. Add the onions to the sauté pan along with the 2 tsp of whipped butter and 2 tsp olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Toss to combine and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar, and toss to combine again. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare pork chops. Preheat broiler, and prepare broiler pan. Use 1 Tbsp rosemary and sprinkle on each side of pork chops, pressing to adhere. Season each side with salt & pepper. Broil for 3-4 minutes per side, until cooked to desired doneness.

4. Once the onions have softened and browned, add the remaining rosemary and figs. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir to combine. Sauté 2 minutes, stirring often. Add water or stock to pan, scraping up any browned bits. Remove from the heat. Mix in the parsley and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over pork chops to serve.
