French Onion Pork Chops

28 Aug

This past week at the store, I found a package of thin, rather small pork chops. While I can “do” pork every now & then, I’m not the biggest fan, so I thought these small pork chops would be a great fit for my appetite!

French Onion Pork Chops


  • Pork chops (I used 4 small, thin chops)
  • 1 can French onion soup
  • 3/4 c. ketchup
  • 1/3 c. honey
  • Sprinkle of garlic powder
  • Pepper


  • Combine the soup, ketchup, honey, garlic powder & pepper. Heat to a boil, then reduce heat to low & cook for 5 minutes.
  • While the soup mixture is cooking, heat a grill pan to high & spray with cooking spray.
  • Season pork chops with salt & pepper.


  • Grill pork chops, coating frequently with the soup mixture (caution: there WILL be splattering!). I ended up cooking my pork chops for only a few minutes on each side because of their size, but larger pork chops may take about 5-7 minutes per side.

I served up my portion – 1 pork chop, a heaping portion of mashed potatoes (I love ‘em!), & a side salad.

Then, I put the 3 remaining chops aside for Chris, who has been working late. (I can’t wait until 9:00PM to eat, I just can’t!)

Hope you enjoyed the short & sweet post tonight; I’m off to enjoy my last few hours of “freedom” before school kicks off tomorrow!

Two questions…

What’s your favorite way to enjoy potatoes? I love, love, love mashed potatoes!

What’s your usual “dinner time”? I try to eat no later than 6:00PM/6:30PM!

    I love the :there will be splattering! 🙂 Hey, at least we know!!! 🙂
    ….I love sweet potatoes & usually eat around 7:00 or 7:30…. Summer eating is usually later just because we are working outside on the farm till late.
    Enjoy ‘freedom’ live it up!!!

    If I ate pork chops– I bet I’d love these. But I DO love the fact that you used a soup as an accenting flavor! Awesome recipe, Cait.

    Oh WOW! That pork looks amazing! I am not a huge fan of pork, but I think it might be because I have not found the right way to cook it! I am actually attempting a roasted pork tenderloin tomorrow! I am definitely bookmarking this recipe! Thanks!

    I LOVE roasted potatoes; however, I am prefer sweet potatoes to white potatoes.

    Dinner time is CRAZY because my husband and I work totally odd hours. It can range anywhere from 5:30 -8:00. I would prefer 6:30ish!
