Pork Chops And Onions

It was late Saturday night and was finishing up my wine while a cooking show was on where an English chef, whose name I can’t recall right now, was making “pork medallions with onions and apples” dish. The husband walked in and said it looked good. It really did look delish. So of course, a few days later I made my own version. I didn’t have any apples though but it was still good. But, if you can get some in time, add chopped apple because while my version worked, the husband and I agreed that it would be even better with apples like the original recipe asked for.

This is such a simple dish but the caramelized and softened onions gave it such a delicate and cozy flavors perfect for a nice dinner with family or friends.
