Pomegranate Pork with Vidalia Onions

6 WWPP Posted by 8 years ago 5 Comments

Hey Mikey, He likes it! or should I say.. THEY like it. It’s been awhile since I made a toddler AND husband approved meal. No complaints. No bargaining. No fighting. No leftovers!

What’s better yet? It’s a cinch to make! Here’s what I did. Pomegranate Pork with Vidalia Onions

  • 4oz pomegranate juice
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • kosher salt and ground pepper.
  • 4 thick slices of Vidalia onion.
  • 4 thin cut boneless pork loin chops

Whisk together the pomegranate juice, garlic, honey, tarragon, large pinch of salt and ground pepper to make the marinade. Now, if you don’t have tarragon you can use any herb (thyme or basil would be good) you like but the tarragon went really well with the pomegranate juice.

Layer the pork chops and onion slices vertically in a quart sized baggie. Pour the marinade over and seal removing as much air as possible. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Heat an outdoor grill. Cook the chops and Vidalia slices 3-4 minutes a side. Longer if you have thick chops. My onion actually took longer then the pork!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    We LOVE this recipe! We've had it as written, also made it into kebabs with other veggies, and our favorite has been to put it in the crockpot. The kids love this (in any form) and actually negotiated for who got the leftovers!

    Hey Roni This was really good, but since we just moved to an apartment without our grill I cooked these on the stove. I just let the meat and onions cook in all the marinade. It turned out awesome. I also made them replacing the onion with an apple which I like more. It was a big hit. Thanks for the recipie! Jaye
