Directions Step-By-Step

1
mix marinade, pour into ziplock bag with pork chops and put in fridge for 1/2 to 2 hours
2
remove pork chops from bag, disgard juice and bag. Pat chops dry with paper towels
3
heat oil in fry pan
4
note---I had to use 2, side-by-side fry pans to make 6 large chops
5
rub both sides of each chop with the pre-mixed rub.
6
in each hot fry pan place 3 chops. fry for a few minutes until 1st side is seared.
7
flip chops, add onions all around the edges and middle, wherever you can fit them
8
lower heat and cook for 2 or 3 more minutes, add garlic and cook until garlic starts to become brown.
9
note--- the trick here is to sear both sides of these chops nicely before deglazing.
10
add wine, orange juice and lime juice, lower heat to simmer.
11
slowly simmer for about another 5 to 7 minutes on each side. remove chops and plate.
12
return pan to stove with gravy and onions. return heat to boil, then lower again and reduce by about half. spoon over pork chops.
