Pretty Pork Chops Smothered in Onion and Mushroom Marmalade with fried Potatoes

It's been a while since I've updated, mostly because I have been BROKE!
Now, I have some monies, and had a late night hankerin' for some pork chops.

There are a lot of people that don't like pork... however, I think they are mistaken. I think they simply haven't had it prepared right... so here is a nice recipe that will turn any pork skeptic into a believer.

What you'll need:
3-4 Pork Chops, Bone-In
1 Medium Onion
6 Crimini Mushrooms
Olive Oil
Seasoning Salt
3 Cloves of Garlic
4 Yukon Gold Potatoes

Slice onion  and chop garlic and place in a pan coated in olive oil over medium heat. 

Clean and slice mushrooms and add to the sauté. Cook until the onions become transparent and add the pork chops over the top of the sauté.

Cover pan, and simmer. While the pork chops are cooking, slice potatoes in 1/4 and saute in olive oil and salt over medium-high heat. When browned, turn heat to medium and cover to steam.

While potatoes are cooking through, flip pork and stir onions. At this point, the onions should start caramelizing and the pork should have a nice, golden crust forming. If not, then turn the heat up just a smidgeon... be careful to not turn it up too much, as to not dry out the pork.

When the pork is done, the potatoes should be tender. Serve pork with onion marmalade on top, and with a side. Since it's summer, I decided to go with corn in the cob with butter and salt.


This is sooooo good, and since it's mostly cooked with the lid on, it's pretty much steamed. 

So good. Try it, my friends. Whether you think you like pork or not!
