Submitted by Americo
Serves 4-6

Ingredients

1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground 4-6 pork chops
¼ c. fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Onion Marmellata

¼ c. olive oil 4 large onions, thinly sliced (~3 lbs.)
¼ c. orange marmalade 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped 1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp sugar (to taste)

Directions

  1. For the onion marmellata, place a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat.  Add the olive oil & the onions.  Stir to combine & cook until starting to sizzle, about 2 minutes.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover the pot & cook over low heat for 2 hours, stirring ever 30 minutes to scrape up any brown bits.  The onions should be a soft, jam-like consistency & a deep mahogany color.
  2. Meanwhile, for the pork chops, combine the rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt, & pepper in a small bowl.  Using your fingers, work all the ingredients together until well combined.  Rub the herb mixture over the pork chops.  Cover with plastic wrap & reserve in the refrigerator.
  3. About 20 minutes before the onions are finished, remove the pork chops from the refrigerator.  Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.  Grill the pork chops to medium, about 7 minutes a side depending on thickness.  To serve, spoon the onion marmellata over the pork chops. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley.  Serve immediately.
