Main Ingredients for this recipe:

Pork Chops – these can be boneless or bone-in. Look for a chop that is at least 1/2″ thick.

Onions – I use white onions because they are slightly sweet, but yellow onions would also work.

Ketchup – Surprise! Not an ingredient you would expect, but it adds a rich tomato flavor to the sauce.

Brown Sugar – This will bring out the sweet and tangy sauce that makes these pork chops so flavorful.
