Pork with Sweet Onion Marmellata

Hi all! Tonight I'm making  Giada De Laurentiis', Pork with Sweet Onion Marmellata.
The other day we had found some pork on sale at Vons. Seeing as I had a morning half day at work (Love those) I decided to prepare the pork a little different than just the ole' Shake N' Bake.
Looking around on the internet, I came across this picture, doesn't it look yummy?

So, I read on and I happen to have most of the ingredients in my tiny kitchen.
So it must be, tonight we will be dining on pork! 

The recipe consist of a herb rub and a onion marmalade topping. I served it with a simple mashed potatoes.

 The onion topping
It was really good, you could really taste the orange marmalade, and the sweetness of the of the onions and sugar really plays well with the pork.

 The rub for the pork 
Some of my favorite herbs were used and it was very tasty.

The pork enjoying its rub.

Final plating 
Except I totally accidentally forgot to top with the parsley!


Pork with Sweet Onion Marmellata

Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis


Onion Marmellata:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 large onions, thinly sliced (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or more to taste)

Pork Chops:

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 to 6 pork chops
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


For the onion marmellata, place a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and the onions. Stir to combine and cook until starting to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and cook over low heat for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes to scrape up any brown bits. The onions should be a soft, jam-like consistency and a deep mahogany color.
Meanwhile, for the pork chops, combine the rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Using your fingers, work all the ingredients together until well combined. Rub the herb mixture over the pork chops. Cover with plastic wrap and reserve in the refrigerator.
About 20 minutes before the onions are finished, remove the pork chops from the refrigerator. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Grill the pork chops to medium, about 7 minutes a side depending on thickness. To serve, spoon the onion marmellata over the pork chops. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
