This elegantly simple dish borrows heavily from the Mediterranean for its flavors.


  • 2 boneless pork chops, 3/4- inch thick
  • olive oil
  • garlic pepper
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 7 oz jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar


  • Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Brush chops lightly with oil and generously sprinkle both sides of chops with garlic pepper. Cook chops for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160° F. Remove chops to a serving platter; keep warm. Add onion, sugar and garlic to skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until onion is lightly browned. Stir in roasted peppers and vinegar; heat through. Serve onion mixture over chops.
