A note about serious food allergies

Caramelized onion is great on its own, where the caramelization (that means browning) brings out a sweetness that goes great everywhere and on nearly everything. (Maybe not on a salad… but we could make it work!) But we've done some interesting level ups here, adding sweet apple (in cider and butter form), pungent mustard, and rich butter. A bit better onion on your pork chop? We're adding this to our baskets right now.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until golden-brown and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using pork tenderloin medallions, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until golden-brown and pork medallions reach minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Medallion thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner medallion, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using sirloin steak, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

    Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Mince garlic.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Pat pork chops dry and season both sides with pink seasoned salt.

  2. 2

    Roast the Broccoli

    Place broccoli on prepared baking sheet. Toss with garlic, 1 tsp. olive oil, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until browned and tender, 14-16 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Top broccoli evenly with 1 tsp. lemon juice.

    While broccoli roasts, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Onions

    Place 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat.

    Add onions to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned, 10-12 minutes.

    If pan becomes dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, as needed.

    Add apple cider and apple butter. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir in mustard. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in butter, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

    While onions cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4
