I have been making variations of this dish for years – it’s one of those dishes that just sits in the back of my mind and pops up every so
Sometimes I do it with the onions as I have here and at other times I don’t, but the slightly sticky sweet onion sauce does work
wonderfully with the pork.
Honey & Sage Marinated Pork Chops
I simply served these over smashed potatoes and accompanied by steamed broccoli, but any green vegetable or a salad works.
If you don’t have red onions, brown onions work too.
4 pork chops
2 red onions, sliced
HONEY & SAGE MARINADE
½ cup white wine
2 tbsp honey
½ tsp dried sage
1 For marinade, place wine, honey and sage in dish and mix to combine – microwave on HIGH (100%) for 30 seconds so that the
ingredients combine more easily. Add chops, cover and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes at room temperature or, if longer, in the refrigerator.
2 Place onions and a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or
until onions soften and start to caramelise.
3 Remove onions from pan and increase heat. Drain chops and reserve marinade. Add chops to pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or
until pork is cooked to your liking. Remove chops from pan and keep warm. Return onions to pan, add reserved marinade and cook,
stirring, for 2-3 minutes to make a slightly sticky, onion sauce. Serve sauce spooned over chops.
Happy cooking and eating.
