Brown Sugar Bacon & Caramelized Onion Pork Chops
4 bone-in pork chops, 1" thick
3/4 lb. bacon
2 small onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
4 tbsp. Brown Sugar BBQ Rub
Season pork chops generously with Brown Sugar Rub. Set aside and bring pork chops to room temperature.
On a plate or cutting board, layout bacon slices and season generously on both sides with Brown Sugar Rub. Chop bacon into 1/4" pieces.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and transfer to paper towel lined plate to drain.
Add onion to the bacon grease and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and golden brown. Remove onions from skillet, set aside.
Increase heat to medium-high heat and add chops to skillet. Sear chops for 4 - 5 minutes on one side until golden brown. Flip chops over and reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135°F. Remove from heat and cover with foil.
Add chicken broth to skillet and scrape up any bits, then add heavy cream and simmer until mixture is thickened, about 2-4 minutes.
Add onions and bacon to skillet and stir to combine. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Plate pork chops and top with bacon and onion mixture. Serve. Enjoy!
