The warmth of the smoky chipotle chile pepper blends perfectly with the cool cream to create a wonderful main dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
olive oil, divided
4 large
pork rib chops, 1/2-inch thick
1 large
onion, cut into wedges (yellow or sweet onions are best)
1 tsp
smoky chili powder (i ussed mccormick chipotle chile pepper)
1/2 tsp
salt
1 1/4 c
heavy cream
2 Tbsp
fresh cilantro, minced or finely chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
2
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Lightly brown pork chops on each side. Transfer chops to a roasting pan or casserole dish just large enough to hold chops in a single layer.
3
Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in the same skillet. Add onions, chipotle chile pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sauté until onions are lightly cooked.
4
Distribute onions evenly over the pork chops. Set skillet aside for the sauce. Bake pork chops at 350° for 20 minutes (or to an internal temperature of 160°F).
5
While pork chops are baking, add cream to the skillet and slowly bring to a boil while scraping the pan to release the caramelized pan juices. Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cilantro. When cream comes to a boil, immediately reduce the heat to as low as possible and keep warm.
6
Remove pork chops from the oven. Pour the warm cream sauce over pork. Serve immediately while still piping hot.
