  • tablespoons  butter
  • yellow onions,  thinly sliced
  • cup  beef broth, divided
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • teaspoon  Italian seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • cups  shredded gruyere cheese
  • Parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  3. Add onions and half of the beef broth and cook until the onions are browned and tender (approximately 15-20 minutes). Transfer cooked onions to a bowl and tent to keep warm.
  4. In a small bowl, combine oil, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Rub over both sides of the pork chops.
  5. To the same skillet (do not wipe out) add the seasoned pork chops. Cook 3-5 minutes on each side (or until well browned). Remove from skillet and set aside.
  6. Add the onions back to the skillet.
  7. In a small bowl, combine remaining beef broth and flour. Whisk together and pour into onion mixture. Bring the mixture to a low boil (sauce should thicken).
  8. Add the pork chops to the onion mixture. Top with Gruyere cheese.

  9. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly. The internal temperature of pork should be 145°F when cooked.

  10. Remove from the oven and spoon some of the onion mixture over the top. Serve.
