Pork Chops with Caramelized Shallots

     During the week I try to find recipe that take 30 minutes or less to prepare and cook because I’m usually tired after teaching all day.  Many times the meals will take up to an hour but these pork chops were prepared, made, and on the table in a half hour.

     These pork chops are made in just one dish.  The sauce is mixed in the baking dish, the pork chops are added, and then the shallots are put on top.  The oven is at a high temperature which caramelizes the shallots without cooking them in a frying pan.  The pork can out really tender and the sauce was bright and flavorful.  The shallots added a nice flavor as well.  This is a great weeknight meal.
