Caramelized Onion and Bacon Smothered Pork Chops

I made these for Don and me on a night the girls were gone(they don't care for pork chops)  These were easy to make and tasted great.

6 slices bacon, chopped
2 small onions, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 pepper
4 bone-in pork chops, 1 inch thick
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream

In a large sauté pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove to a bowl, reserving bacon grease.

Add onions to bacon grease and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 15 to 20 minutes, until onions are soft and golden brown. Add onions to bacon in the bowl.

Increase heat to medium high and sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Add chops to pan and brown on the first side 3 minutes. Then turn chops over and reduce heat to medium, cooking on the second side until internal temperature reaches 135F, about 7 to 10 more minutes. Remove to a platter and tent with foil.

Add broth to pan and scrape up any browned bits. Add cream and simmer until mixture is thickened, 2 or 3 minutes. Return onions and bacon to pan and stir to combine.

Top pork chops with onion and bacon mixture and serve.
