    PREPARATION

    Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until caramelized, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, season pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper and thyme. Remove onions from skillet and set aside. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. butter to skillet and turn heat to medium-high.
