  • 4 ounces Crimini mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 pound (4) center-cut boneless pork chops, about 1” thick
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter


  1. Clean and slice mushrooms; slice onion.
  2. Trim excess fat from chops. Coat with balsamic vinegar and spices (rosemary, thyme, pepper and garlic powder) and allow to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Add oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add chops. Cook for 6 minutes.

  6. Serve pork chop topped with sautéed onion and mushroom mix.
