    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
    • 4 pork loin chops, 1 inch thick
    • salt to taste
    • black pepper to taste
    • 1 pinch garlic powder to taste
    • ½ pint red grape tomatoes, halved
    • ½ pint yellow grape tomatoes, halved
    • 3 cloves garlic, diced
    • 1 tablespoon dried basil
    • 2 ½ teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook until golden brown; transfer onion to a plate and set aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in the skillet. Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; place in the skillet and cook to desired doneness. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Heat remaining olive oil in the skillet; add cooked onion, tomatoes, garlic, and basil. Cook and stir until tomatoes are tender, about 3 minutes. Mix in balsamic vinegar, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Top chops with the onion and tomato mixture, and sprinkle with feta cheese to serve.
