Created by Michel Nischan
Servings: Makes 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 medium red onion , cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 8 (1/2-inch thick) ' ' boneless pork loin chops , trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 bunch oregano
  • 4 medium tomatoes , cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • Canola or olive oil nonstick cooking spray
Directions
Arrange onion slices on cold Foreman grill. Plug in grill; heat until indicator light turns off, about 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 200°F. Move onion slices to edges of grill. Sprinkle pork chops with a total of 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place as many pork chops as will fit in the center of the grill. Arrange half the oregano over pork chops (save 2 sprigs for garnish). Close grill and cook through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining pork chops.

Sprinkle tomatoes with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Lightly coat tomatoes with cooking spray; place on grill. Arrange remaining oregano over tomatoes. Turn onions over. Close grill and cook tomatoes until hot and softened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Transfer tomatoes and onions to a warm platter. Arrange pork chops on top. Pour juices from baking sheet over pork chops; garnish with oregano. Serve with your favorite wild-rice recipe.

Alternate preparation: Pork chops can also be prepared on an outdoor grill or stovetop grill pan. Cook onions over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, grill pork chops 5 to 6 minutes; turn once halfway through cooking. Grill tomatoes about 2 minutes.
