Low carb Smothered Pork Chops

I've been on this South Beach "way of eating" for almost a year now, and it's becoming a way of life for me. I don't call it a diet because it's just healthier eating......losing some weight is an added benefit!!
The internet is loaded with low carb recipes and I stumbled across one of the best the other day...

Low Carb Caramelized Onion-Bacon Pork Chops

Talk about good...these were awesome. My husband asks everyday "When are you makin' those chops again?

Caramelized Onion & Bacon Smothered Pork Chops
Yield: 4 chops
Serving Size: 1 chop
Juicy, tender pork chops smothered in a creamy onion and bacon sauce. This might be the best low carb meal I've ever had!
  • 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
  1. In a large saute pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove to a bowl, reserving bacon grease.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Top pork chops with onion and bacon mixture and serve.

With all the summer fruit and tomatoes on the kitchen counter, the fruit flies have really become annoying. I've tried everything I know to get rid of them. Well last week, my sister gave me a clever gadget....a fruit fly trap!
Problem solved.
It only takes two ingredients that you already have to make the solution that attracts the flies...vinegar and dish detergent!

1 cup of cider vinegar
2 tsp. dish washing liquid
1 cup water
Enough to last all summer when sealed in a glass container!

 The apple has a hole in the bottom with a curved reservoir around the hole. You just removed the apple stem from the top, tilt the apple to let the liquid collect in the reservoir and add 3 or 4 drops of the liquid. The flies enter through the bottom and become trapped! ...easy peasy!
Just rinse out the apple to remove old solution (and dead flies) lol
