Crispy Onion Pork

In case you couldn’t tell, I love recipes that are quick, easy, and cheap to make. This Crispy Onion Pork definitely fits that bill. It has only four ingredients (five if you count black pepper) and it’s ready in less than a half an hour! My grandmother used to make this with whole cut up chicken pieces, her own homemade version of Shake ‘n Bake. We like using pork for this recipe because it cooks a little faster and I can use the other half of the 6 lb. half pork loin I typically buy for another recipe during the week. I like to cut the pork loin into about 1/2″ slices. It yields more pieces and crunchier bites than if you just had a few really thick ones. Be sure to check a little before the time is up for doneness so as not to over cook them and flip them over half-way through for crispiness on both sides.

Based on a recipe my grandmother used to make with whole cut up chicken pieces, this one is super simple and full on flavor.
