Prep time


Cooking time




  • 4 – 5 pork chops , boneless (~ 150-200g/5-7oz each) (Note 1)

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 large onions , sliced into rings (brown, yellow or white)

  • 2 garlic cloves , minced

  • 1.5 tbsp / 25g butter (or olive oil)

  • 1 tsp oil , if needed

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 cup/250ml beef broth/stock , low sodium

  • 2 tbsp flour

  • 4 slices cheese (Note 2)

  • Finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves


  • Caramelise Onions: Melt butter on medium (or medium low for strong stoves). Add onion and garlic, cook 15 minutes until golden brown and caramelised, stirring regularly (see video). Remove from skillet.
  • Prepare Chops: Sprinkle chops with garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Sear: Add oil into skillet if needed. Turn heat up to high. Sear chops 1 minute on each side until nicely browned but not cooked inside. Remove onto plate.
  • Gravy: Turn heat down to medium. Return onion into skillet, scraping in juices. Add flour, mix.
  • Add beef broth and mix until incorporated. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer Chops in Sauce: When it comes to a simmer, give it a big stir then add pork chops.
  • Top chops with cheese, cover with lid to melt and finish cooking the chops through – only 3 minutes for thin chops like I’m using. Internal temp of 160F/70C for no pink (or 155F/68C for blush of pink).
  • Garnish: Remove lid, sprinkle with rosemary. Spoon over French Onion Gravy, then sprinkle with more rosemary.
  • Serve immediately, over mashed potato or similar.
